Welcome to Pendleton Sixth Form College


At Pendleton Sixth Form College we ensure that students achieve their full potential.

We do this by providing excellent learning opportunities delivered by some of the very best teachers in the country. All of our teaching staff are experts in their subject areas and are committed to supporting each and every student to excel in their studies. We have a dedicated pastoral support team who work with our students on an individual basis to help them flourish. This is in addition to our specialist learning support offer for those students who need extra help to achieve.

Pendleton Sixth Form College has a long standing tradition of A-level success and a Performing Arts Department with a national reputation for excellence. The college specialises in the delivery of A-levels, Vocational performing and production arts, creative arts and science. We have a 97% A-level pass rate and 100% advanced Vocational pass rate.

The talent of our performing arts students has allowed us to develop an audition process which involves some of the best drama schools in the country travelling to the college to hold their auditions. We have made a significant investment in our creative arts facilities with the introduction of industry standard gallery spaces and workshops. Our end of year creative arts exhibition is renowned for the high standard of student work on display. Plus our outstanding science provision has been recognised nationally. This year one of our science students, Maryam Taher, won the overall BTEC Student of the Year Award and this builds on a history of success in the science category with Pendleton Sixth Form College students winning four of the past seven annual awards.

To ensure our students are successful they will be allocated a personal tutor, have the opportunity to engage in our enrichment programme, develop employability skills and participate in work experience placements. They will also be supported to develop their English and maths skills, independent and critical thinking, study skills and resilience and have the opportunity to enrol onto the extended project qualification.

Our innovative Pendleton Scholars’ Programme supports our most academically able students and prepares them to compete for places at the most prestigious universities, with many of our students securing Oxbridge and Russell Group university placements.

At college we value the individual and have created a safe, caring and welcoming environment which allows our students to enjoy this very important time in their educational journey. We are proud of our students’ successes and our college community and look forward to welcoming you to Pendleton Sixth Form College.
