  • Congratulations on choosing to study at Lowestoft Sixth Form College. 


    We are a high-achieving college offering an excellent student experience. Our students STANDOUT. In 2019, 99.7% of our A Level students passed their exams, with 74% achieving A*- C grades. Our BTEC students did equally well, with 100% passing their Diploma course. Additionally, we have recently been rated among the top 25% of colleges in the country for student progress, according to national data. 


    We are extremely proud to say that, according to the Department for Education’s performance tables, Lowestoft Sixth Form College is one of the top three performing sixth form colleges in England for A Level and BTEC performance, and the top performing sixth form college in the East of England. 


    Our outstanding teachers and support staff provide students with the expertise and support needed to progress onto their chosen destination, be it university, an apprenticeship or employment. 


    We truly value our students and listen to their contributions. In return we ask that you commit to your studies and work hard. Our teachers are passionate about your learning – they want you to enjoy their subject and to succeed. 


    Lowestoft Sixth Form College is an exceptional place. We are big enough to provide a wide range of subject choices, but small enough to nurture every student to achieve their goals, whatever they may be. 


    We have so much to offer you; I look forward to meeting you in the near future. 


    Best wishes, 

    Keith Shiels, Principal
