College Welcome

Welcome to our website. I hope it will give you a flavour of the terrific range of courses, opportunities and facilities available for you at our college.

Sixth form colleges are the most successful type of ‘sixth form’ nationally, and Wilberforce is a great example. The strength of Wilberforce comes from our focus as a specialist college, delivering exclusively to 16-19 year olds. This means that the courses that we offer, our staffing and resources are all targeted at helping you to achieve your full potential, and in an environment designed especially for you.

We aim to be an outstanding college. We will work with our students and the community to raise aspirations, and enable all students to fulfil their potential.

The range of courses on offer is outstanding. Wilberforce students achieve exceptional results, and their track record in winning top university places and going on to exciting careers is second to none. There’s the opportunity to take part in drama, music, sports and charity events, or simply to make new friends and have a wonderful social life.

Choosing to come to college is about being ready to make some changes and move on, and Wilberforce is the top choice for most young people in the area. This website will give you a real sense of life as a college student, and you can come to visit us on one of our many open days and evenings. I hope you will be encouraged to make Wilberforce College your college.
