Newcastle Sixth Form College is an aspirational and inclusive community dedicated to helping young people fulfil their potential. Students thrive in a culture of mutual respect, increased freedom, and high expectations. More students progress to university from NSFC than from any provider in the region, with over 450 students gaining places each year.

The college is based in a purpose built Sixth Form College offering a university style learning environment. NSFC is the only dedicated Sixth Form College in Newcastle, and is the most popular choice for A-levels in the city.

Across the region, young people travel from as far as Berwick and Teesside to study at the college. They choose to do so not just because of the world class facilities and wide range of subject choices, but most importantly because of the inspirational teaching, guidance and support.

Case Study

Abby Cass is a second year student at Newcastle Sixth Form College studying A Levels in Biology, English Language and Psychology. Her plan to progress to university is well on track, and she is part of a diverse community of students who believe that they can ‘go further’ with Newcastle Sixth Form College.

Alongside her studies, Abby is also an elite athlete, and has represented the North East in the National Age Group Diving Championships for the last 5 years.

Having taken up diving just seven years ago, 2019 is Abby’s fifth successive year reaching the Sport England national finals, which have been the starting point for all of our Olympic gold medallist diving champions. Abby trains five times a week, and competes in her age group in the 1m and 3m Springboard category.

The national finals are the elite stage of competition for competitive diving, and Abby who trains at the Sunderland Aquatic Centre set a personal best earlier this year on her way through the regional heats, to the national finals.

“The college has amazing facilities and open work spaces, it is a truly inspiring place to study.

I have loved studying at Newcastle Sixth Form, because the staff allow me the freedom to study at my own pace but also the support I need to get the best possible results.”
