Welcome to the Heart of Yorkshire Education Group's Sixth Form Centre
Our Sixth Form Centre aims to provide students with a stepping stone between school and university and prepares them for further study or employment – which is great practice for those inevitable changes that life brings. We do this by creating an adult learning environment where students are able to thrive and be independent.
Many of our students comment on the positive attitude of our staff and the mutual respect they develop from working together, and the positive impact this has on their learning.
In addition to ensuring learner's academic progression, we also want students to progress as an individual and have a range of support in place to help them develop your confidence, skillset and portfolio.
We base our A Level programmes on facilitating and stimulating subjects, ensuring students have the skills and knowledge which are in demand by universities and employers. This, as well as our wrap-around support for our students, has led many of them to secure places at a range of Russell Group universities including Oxford and Cambridge, as well as on to prosperous careers.
