Welcome to Eccles Sixth Form Centre
As Centre Principal, I would like to thank you for your interest in Eccles Sixth Form Centre. I hope that you find this brochure informative and exciting and that it will encourage you to study with us. I would encourage you to come along and see us at an open event and find out why we have the outstanding reputation that we have.
We have a great sixth form centre that is dedicated to ensuring your success. We shall work with you to give you the best chance of gaining your first choice place at university or your dream job. We treat every student as an individual and will work with you to ensure that you reach your full potential.
The centre has gained success over a number of years and this is confirmed by our 99% A-Level pass rate and 100% advanced vocational pass rate. Staff work hard and with enthusiasm to ensure that students reach their full potential and it is this, together with our students’ commitment and their parents’ support, that creates the superb opportunities for students both within college and beyond.
The centre offers a wide range of A-Levels and vocational courses and we are renowned throughout the North West for our exceptional Maths and Science Department, having won awards for our work in this area. This is supported by the range of visiting speakers, student placements and university links that we have. Our sporting facilities are state of the art and our links with sporting clubs including Manchester United and Salford City Reds, giving students the very best of opportunities. It’s not all work; college visits and trips and fun activities give you the encouragement to keep working hard in your studies.
Our Eccles Sixth Form Centre is located on Chatsworth Road in Eccles and is easily accessible by using the free college buses or public transport. We are only a 10 minute walk away from Salford Royal Hospital meaning that travelling from all over Greater Manchester is easy. The centre stands on leafy grounds with lots of outdoor space and excellent facilities, making it a great atmosphere in which to learn and study. We also have extensive social areas in which you can relax when you are not in class.
Many exciting activities have taken place at Eccles Sixth Form Centre over the past year, with some very special visitors taking time out of their busy schedules to speak to our students. External visits have included MediaCityUK Channel 4 TV studios, Fashion and Design Awards in London, trips to Europe and beyond, as well as lots of fun activities such as rock festivals and animal shows. Recent additions to the centre include an animal farm with goats, wallabies, pigs, reptiles, coatis, chickens and other animals.
We have three main open events and we look forward to meeting you, so we can show you what Eccles Sixth Form Centre has to offer. You can find out more in the meantime on our website, facebook and twitter pages.
