Liverpool College Sixth Form is a happy and caring environment. The Sixth Form should be a fruitful time in the personal and intellectual development of every student. Our aim is to provide our students with a purposeful and challenging experience which strengthens their capacities and interests, develops their character, and gives them the confidence to take the next step on their academic and life journey.
Through the LCA+ curriculum, our Sixth Formers engage in rigorous academic study, whilst developing key character traits and skills of independence, resilience, leadership and responsibility.
As well as A Level and BTEC studies, all students undertake an Extended Project Qualification which can lead to lower university entry requirements.
There are around 125 students in each year group and we typically welcome more than 40 students from other schools in Liverpool at the end of their GCSE years.
The average class size is 16 and students are taught by experienced subject leaders. Our programme of Sixth Form House Mentors as part of the House system provide strong pastoral support and create a community with purpose and ambition for each student.
The Sixth Form is housed in a dedicated Sixth Form building called Godwyn House which is a refurbished Victorian villa on our campus. The Sixth Form is further strengthened by our boarding programme which brings a diverse and highly motivated group of young people to the Sixth Form.
The Sixth Form at Liverpool College is vibrant and successful. Our students thrive and strive in a caring collegiate atmosphere.
In November 2019 our Sixth Form was rated as Outstanding by OFSTED. Sixth Form specific sections are highlighted below:
"The curriculum offer for sixth-form students is ambitious for all, and students' achievement is excellent. Students' character development continues to be a major focus at key stage 5. Teachers provide students with a wealth of diverse and enjoyable opportunities to support their personal and social development. These include: preparing food for university; driving test theory classes; and opportunities to be ambassadors for younger pupils. Students are extremely positive about their education and they say that they are very well supported in sixth form. Pupils receive very high quality careers advice and guidance. They are very well prepared for their next steps in education, employment or training. The overwhelming majority go on to study at highly respected universities."
