Welcome to the Wellington College Sixth Form experience, which presents each one of our students with challenge and opportunity. Sixth Form at Wellington embraces learning, life and leadership, and our balanced and exciting enrichment offer allows each individual to engage with College life, while working towards excellent outcomes in exams. Our students go on to study at top universities, gain higher apprenticeships with leading companies, and excel in leadership and enterprise opportunities. 

In designing our Sixth Form curriculum we listen to employers, and work closely with universities, to ensure the subject combinations we provide allow access to competitive jobs and higher education pathways. In a fast changing world, we want all students to study subjects they will enjoy, excel at, and which will give them the skills needed to succeed in life beyond school. Our life skills programme supports the personal development of every pupil, and provides a supportive environment in which to study and perform to the best of your ability.

Each year we welcome new pupils, from a range of local schools. At Wellington we find that each individual quickly becomes part of our school family, and through our leadership and community service programmes are able to build their profile and form firm friendships. We are proud that new students often represent the College in sports, music and community events, and have the opportunity to become prefects in recognition of their success.

Wellington College Sixth Form is an excellent environment in which to engage, grow and excel in the final years of your school life. You will be supported to succeed, and develop both as a learner and a leader while preparing for the next steps in life.
