Welcome from the Head of Sixth Form

I am very pleased to welcome you to Avon Valley Sixth Form, a place where young people are able to develop confidence in themselves, aspire and achieve. 

We are committed to ensuring young people are prepared for a rapidly changing, global workplace and are encouraged to flourish as creative, life-long learners. Our fully inclusive offer ensures that we can find something to suit everyone within a warm, friendly and nurturing environment.

We have crafted a dynamic curriculum offer with a wide range of academic and vocational bespoke programmes include extracurricular opportunities to enable students to develop in confidence, experience the world of work, broaden their interests and prepare them for a 21st century global community. From the academic breadth and depth of the A Level subjects  to the wide variety of sporting, art and drama opportunities, international trips or local community service. Your time in the Sixth Form is a chance to pursue your interests and develop your own knowledge and skills. In short, it is time for you to develop as an individual.

Our highly qualified and experienced teachers are subject specialists, delivering first class education and training. Our culture of mutual respect and inclusion creates a safe, secure and happy learning environment of which we are extremely proud.

We are a caring sixth form with an excellent reputation for pastoral support to ensure you have access to the help and guidance you need to keep you on track, overcome any barriers to your learning and help plan for your future.

By the end of your time in the Sixth Form, we want you to be well-prepared for the next stage in your life. Whether this be University, Apprenticeships or Employment we provide excellent support through our individualised careers and higher education service.

The information contained in this introduction can only provide a glimpse into life at Avon Valley Sixth Form College. May I offer you a warm welcome to visit and see our community in action on any of our open days.
