College Life

Rated Ofsted Good across all areas, King Edward VI College is the only Sixth Form college in Coventry and Warwickshire specialising in the teaching and support of 16 to 19-year olds. We take students from Coventry, Warwickshire, West Midlands, Leicestershire and neighbouring counties, and provide the grown up learning environment that’s perfect preparation for university or the workplace.

The college has over 1,100 students, approximately 75% will go on to university. King Edward VI College has an excellent reputation for very high standards of teaching and learning, a long-established track record of success and a tremendous range of programmes available.

We now offer over 60 subjects at A Level and BTEC all available at one institution – that’s the widest range of A Level and BTEC courses in Coventry and Warwickshire. Approximately 40% of our students gain high grades.

A student at King Edward’s has a bespoke programme of study which includes 3 academic subjects, a LinC activity and a weekly meeting with their Progress Coach.

The main difference to school Sixth Forms is that our students are free to use their non timetabled sessions as they wish.  There is ample space for supported independent study in one of our study areas.

The college does not have a uniform or dress code whuch leads to a more relaxed environment, free from some of the necessary, but sometimes time consuming regulations at schools.

We think Sixth Form college is a new and exciting environment in which to make the natrual transition to the world and beyond and opens up new and exciting opportunities.

Join us at King Edward VI College and you too can be part of this success.
