The majority of Ashville’s GCSE pupils are returning to its Sixth Form in September. They will benefit from a major investment in the College’s Sixth Form Centre – that has taken place over the summer – which will offer an unrivalled learning environment in which to excel in their final years at the College.

The creation of an additional 100 sq. m will enhance the working environment with a new all-day café; creative and flexible collaborative learning space; new private study areas and; new seminar and meeting rooms.

Along-side the additional space, the existing Centre has been refurbished with a new modern scheme.

 

Ashville College’s Headmaster, Richard Marshall, said:

I am very proud of our pupils, they have worked very hard to achieve their results – so well done to them.

I look forward to welcoming the pupils back to school next month and I have no doubt they will continue to thrive in our new Sixth Form Centre.

What we offer our Sixth Form pupils in terms of academic excellence, extra-curricular activities and the opportunity to flourish and grow in confidence, will only be enhanced by our new facility and collaborative learning environment.
