Wilberforce Sixth Form College
The strength of Wilberforce College comes from our focus as a specialist sixth form college delivering exclusively to 16-19 year olds. This means the courses we offer, our staffing and resources are all targeted at helping you achieve your full potential in an environment designed especially for you.

The Excellence Programme
An offer for university and a dream job in the future are not just a matter of good grades. This ever-competitive and complex world needs people with insight to understand the challenges and the creativity to deal with them. The Wilberforce College Excellence Programme is a bespoke programme designed for students to excel. By being part of this programme they will be supported in their progress into the world's top universities and leading careers.
What makes us different?
We focus heavily on career pathways. When you first attend an interview, our staff will discuss your career aims and aspirations, in order to understand what type of industry and employment you wish to follow in to. We will then create a course programme which will enable you to reach those career goals. We also offer you the chance to develop other life skills and employabilty skills with our Wednesday afternoon enrichment programme. .
