Sixth Form College

Sixth Form Colleges tend to be much bigger than school sixth forms. They also offer a wider range of A-levels and also offer some vocational courses (BTECs). You can choose to study 3 A-levels, 3 BTECs or a combination of the two e.g. 2 A-levels and 1 BTEC. St Brendan's is the Sixth Form College for our region. It is a single site college just for 16 to 18 year olds.
