Principal’s Update

Welcome to Durham Sixth Form Centre. One of the most important decisions you will make is where you continue your education at post-16. We are delighted that you are considering joining Durham Sixth Form Centre. We are a diverse and vibrant community of over 1800 students, who have enrolled with us from over sixty different secondary schools from County Durham and further afield.

With over 30 A-levels and almost 20 vocational qualifications, we have one of the broadest curriculum offers in the area. Our courses are delivered and led by specialist staff, who have expertise in working with 16-19 year olds and, as our results testify, we have an excellent track record of academic success. In addition to our broad curriculum, we offer a wide range of extra opportunities in order to develop our students’ skills and talents.

The vast majority of our students progress to university, whilst others achieve places on highly sought-after school leaver programmes and higher-level apprenticeships, and others enter into employment. Our award-winning Careers, Progression and Aspirations team continues to play an instrumental role in this success.

I would strongly encourage you to visit us at one of our Open Events throughout the year, so that you can discover, first-hand, why so many young people choose Durham Sixth Form Centre as their first-choice place of post-16 study.

I look forward to welcoming you to Durham Sixth Form Centre in the near future.

Joanne Lain
