Where everyone can succeed
The future Prime Minister of this country will come from Luton Sixth Form College
That was one of the first things I said to my students when appointed a few years ago. “Impossible,” they said. “Only until it’s been done,” I replied. I’m absolutely convinced our dream will come true one day. For each and every one of us, success matters, but we know it looks different for everyone. We are here to make sure you achieve whatever it is you want.
From Oxford to Glasgow, via Manchester and Liverpool, our students can be found in the best universities in the UK. In fact, 43% of our university applicants receive offers from the more selective universities, 81% of our students who go to university go on to achieve either a first-class degree or a 2:1 and 94% of our students who go to Russell Group universities achieve a 1st Class or 2nd Class degree. However, there are many other options too! Our specialist staff will help you to build your future. LSFC alumni can be found in apprenticeships, travelling the world, building successful careers, and even as owners of their own businesses.
Broad subject choice
We know that it’s crucially important for you to study the courses that matter to you, led by expert and experienced teachers who understand how to help you maximise your potential. That’s why our Pathways give you access to a huge range of courses, including A levels, vocational diplomas and GCSEs; more choice than anyone else in the local area.
Step into a college that offers you more
The LSFC Experience goes far beyond the classroom. From our university-style independent study areas to our outstanding and award-winning careers department, you will have access to the best facilities and opportunities available. We are one of the biggest sixth form colleges in the country and our financial health continues to be outstanding. This enables us to focus on the little things that matter, and we never compromise on quality because every student matters. Being financially strong means, we are also able to offer one of the biggest enrichment and extra-curricular programmes in the country. Whatever the interest, there will be a student who will share it! With a wealth of student societies, lunchtime talks, visiting speakers, exhibitions, theatre productions, sports clubs, a gym and a thriving Duke of Edinburgh programme, our students always have something to get involved in. We also appreciate the importance of support every step of the way. That’s why our approachable and warm Progress Coach team are always on hand to guide you through your LSFC journey and help you make the most of all opportunities.
Our commitment is this: if you work hard with us and be the best you can be, you will find success.
