Our intention is to ensure that the website provides all the essential information you will require to make an informed decision on your preferred destination for post-16 education.
We hope we have encapsulated the ways in which a sixth form college experience is different to that in a school sixth form by providing a range of information about life as an Esher College student. You will also find detailed information on the huge range of A level and BTEC courses on offer. Remember that virtually any combination of courses is possible.
We firmly believe that Esher College offers you the ideal environment in which to embark on the next stage of your educational career and one in which students are able to thrive, both academically and socially. We are committed not just to your academic success, but to ensuring that you have the opportunity to develop the skills and qualities that will help you to prepare for the future. We have a strong track record in providing the appropriate support to allow students to successfully progress to the next stage in their careers, whether that be higher education or employment. At least 90% of our students go on to degree-level study, many gaining places at the most prestigious universities in the country.
Following our absolutely fantastic 2005 Ofsted Inspection Report, which awarded us top grades for all areas inspected, we were identified by Ofsted as ‘a particularly successful College.’ And we were awarded Beacon status. Our May 2008 Inspection confirmed this top classification and again judged all aspects of provision as ‘outstanding’. Both reports are available in the College Documents section of this website.
If you are considering applying to the College, you may also wish to refer to the prospectus, the latest newsletter, the College video and subject information sheets. I look forward to welcoming you to the College in due course.
