Hereford Sixth Form College Ofsted Rating: 1 (Outstanding)

Principal's message

Jonathan Godfrey OBE Principal: Jonathan Godfrey OBE

Hereford Sixth Form College was established in 1973 as the sixth form for Hereford and the surrounding area. While most of the College's students live in Herefordshire, many travel from Wales and the adjoining counties.

The College offers a broad general education in a caring and supportive environment which enables you to gain the qualifications you need to enter higher education or employment and the opportunity to participate in a wide range of enrichment activities such as sport, drama, music, Young Enterprise, the Student Representative Council and the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

Teaching by experts helps you to learn to take responsibility for your own learning and enjoy your courses. The College regularly gains one of the highest A Level points score per entry of nearly 100 sixth form colleges nationally and was judged to be OUTSTANDING in all areas during the last Ofsted inspection (April 2008).

For the last three years, the College has been identified by the government funded A Level Performance System as one of the best institutions in England for value-added examination results. These consider students' performance in the light of their previous GCSE results and measure progress made. In July 2006, the College was awarded Learning and Skills Beacon Status by the Secretary of State for Education for its outstanding contribution to 16-19 education.

In 2016, the College was named 'Sixth Form College of the Year' by the Times Educational Supplement. This was the inaugural presentation of this award.

The College is more than a place to gain qualifications. It is a bridge between school and higher education or employment where you will enjoy developing skills, making new friends and taking responsibility as a member of a caring and vibrant community.
