Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Longley Park Sixth Form!

As a Sixth Form, we are all about providing an amazing place for 16–19 year-olds to study. It is a place to meet new friends from lots of different backgrounds,  to work with people who share your passion for your chosen subjects and provide you with the opportunity to develop new skills contribute to an ambitious, caring and vibrant community. Most importantly, it is a place to take control of your future, make your own decisions and shape your next steps.

Longley Park Sixth Form is an exciting mix of ideas, beliefs, cultures and languages - a place where young people are able to develop confidence in themselves, aspire and achieve. I very much hope that you will choose to join us.

Choosing where to study after GCSEs is always a big decision. This year it might feel even harder because we have all experienced such an unusual time. Your studies will have been disrupted, you will have spent time out of school, and you will have missed your friends and teachers. I hope that you have been able to keep up with your subjects through online learning and that you have had plenty of advice about what to do next. 

At Longley Park we recognise the importance of choice and believe that your study programme should be designed around your abilities and aspirations. We are committed to providing a well-balanced and challenging curriculum for all students, both inside and outside of the classroom. We have courses for students joining us from a variety of different starting points. No matter what courses you are studying, you will be joining part of our community over almost 1,200 students. 

We believe that each student is an individual, is exceptional and needs to be valued. Our teachers are passionate about your learning – they want you to enjoy your subject and to succeed. This starts with making your transition to post-16 study as easy and exciting as possible! We also understand that everyone has their own unique goals, and it is our job to make sure that you achieve yours. That is why we talk about Project You – we support you to be the best possible version of yourself. You might be aiming for a place at a top university or planning to train for a career straight away. Whatever you want to achieve, we will support you every step of the way. 

By choosing Longley Park as your next step, you are choosing a genuine Sixth Form experience. You will have more independence over your studies and take greater ownership of your future. Our team will be there all the way to support you and guide you when you need it though. In return we ask that you commit to your studies, work hard and embrace our college community.
