Why Choose Us
OUTSTANDING PROGRESS 7 YEARS RUNNING! - For the last 7 years we have achieved outstanding progress! At the start of each year students are given a 'minimum target grade' and an 'aspirational target grade.' To achieve outstanding progress, on average every student needs to meet their aspirational target grade. This means every student needs to do better than what is expected based on previous results. We have managed to maintain these extremely high standards for 7 years!
CURRENT GFA INTER COLLEGE LEAGUE CHAMPIONS AND FORMER VLUK CUP CHAMPIONS - As well as a quality educational experience, you will also gain a quality practical experience as well. Our very talented football team has had a number of successes over the past few years. We have won the GFA inter College League back to back in 2019 and 2020 defeating teams such as Hartpury, Gloucestershire College, North Bristol, City of Bristol among others. In addition, in 2018 we also won a national competition in the VLUK cup, defeating teams such as Crystal Palace Foundation Academy, Ware FC and Lee Hendrie Football Academy.
