Bilborough College is a unique, independent, specialist sixth form college offering academic routes from school into university and employment.
We provide each individual student with the best opportunity to achieve their full potential, reach ambitious goals and maximise their life chances as effective global citizens.
We feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with so many able and enthusiastic young people who make a commitment to learning when they decide to come here. Our challenge is to respond to them by meeting their needs, raising their aspirations and helping each one to achieve their full potential. We have a modern building with state-of-the-art facilities, however it’s the quality and commitment of our staff and their relationship with students that makes the real difference.
The college’s most important set of performance indicators are based on its students’ examination results and their destinations. Students’ performance, the progress that they make and their progression routes are key priorities for us all.
Alongside good and outstanding teaching, the experience of being a student here involves a wide range of Enrichment opportunities, including sport, foreign exchange visits to five European countries and to China, direct involvement in running and managing College events and many more. We believe that all of this – underpinned by strong support services, positive and productive staff student relationships and a sense of community – provides an environment where students are able to develop as individuals, personally and academically, in line with their particular talents and abilities.
Every member of staff has a vital part to play in creating that environment by putting our values into practice.
