“I am excited to lead a group of exceptional staff and students at The Sixth Form College, Solihull. We exist as an important stepping stone between school and Higher Education and the world of work.
“Transferring to a sixth form college is a significant step for young people and everything we do is geared towards ensuring young people can move onto their ultimate career goal. Post-16 education can be a bit daunting, because so much seems to hang on what students achieve at this level. However, we pride ourselves on the provision we offer and we are confident that if students work hard, and take advantage of the many opportunities available to them at College, they will achieve success.
“The strengths of this College come from our focus as a specialist; delivering exclusively to full-time 16-19 year olds. This means that our curriculum, staffing and resources are all targeted on getting the best for young people in an environment designed especially for them. The range of courses we offer is outstanding, and our track record of supporting students through university, apprenticeship or employment applications is second to none.
“We are small enough to ensure that everyone gets the individual attention they need to succeed, but big enough to offer a full range of truly specialist course options. Our track record demonstrates that if students really embrace the learning culture at the College, they can be very confident that they will secure a good place at university or work. We expect our students to play their part, by taking responsibility for their learning, throwing themselves into their studies with dedication and enthusiasm so that they not only do well, but also enjoy it.”– Dr Martin Sullivan
