About Our Sixth Form
Welcome to Richmond Sixth Form College where students have a challenging and very positive experience and enjoy excellent outcomes. Our results demonstrate that we provide high-quality Sixth Form education and we offer excellent support to our students throughout their journey towards either a university place or entry into the world of work. In 2017 Ofsted judged that our Sixth Form provision was extremely strong. We are, of course, not complacent and we continue to focus on our aim to be regarded as the best Sixth Form College in the North of England.
As a College, our vision statement, Being the best we can be, drives all that we do. Its beauty is in its simplicity and it can be applied to everyone involved with the College across a wide range of situations. Underpinning our vision statement, we have a set of six core values that we live by and aim to develop in all our students, staff and other stakeholders.
We consider these to be integral to our students’ success and wellbeing. We know that such values are highly regarded in the world of work and in society as a whole. We strive to ensure our students are supported to demonstrate these values so that they can be positive and successful contributors at a local, national and international level. These values are:
Alongside a commitment to focusing on academic study, students are expected and encouraged to become fully involved in the life of the College. We have an active Student Leadership Team, consisting of Head Boy, Head Girl, their deputies and student leaders.
A wealth of opportunities exist to be part of a wide range of extra-curricular activities, including dance, debating, drama, music, sport and travel. Our personalised approach and rich curricular and extra-curricular offer make Richmond a supportive and very positive place to learn.
