Cirencester College

Cirencester College is one of only three specialist Sixth Form Colleges in the South West. We provide a tremendous subject choice, a supportive and ambitious pastoral system and great teaching. The College offers an adult ethos with the feel of a University, ensuring that students achieve their full potential.

The College’s facilities have benefitted from significant investment in the last five years resulting in a brand new Sports Hall, multi-purpose STEM building, Animal Centre and state of the art classrooms. The extensive enrichment programme offers all students the opportunity to broaden their horizons.

We look forward to supporting students with their post-16 choices. We can also offer schools support in terms of curriculum enhancement, study skills, mentoring and advice sessions. Please contact the college for further details as we can make bespoke arrangements
