“It is with great pleasure that we welcome students into Bideford College’s Sixth Form to begin the next, and very important, stage of their journey.

Our vision is to provide the best learning and personal development experience, to ensure that our students are successful academically, as well as personally. We will support them to succeed, on whichever path they choose.

We recognise each student as an individual, with their individual strengths contributing to make us a strong and diverse Sixth Form. We pride ourselves on being a welcoming and inclusive community, which nurtures talent, in whatever form that may be. With our open-door policy, we are able to support our students' needs, and ensure they know that communication and connection with staff is always available.

Our Sixth Form has a very caring, collaborative and supportive community, with wellbeing as a core focus. We have high expectations of our students and staff, and aim to provide each student with the best possible post-16 education, so they are ready and prepared for their journey ahead.”
