East Norfolk – so much more than just a Sixth Form College
In 2022, East Norfolk Sixth Form College (EN) celebrates 40 years of being a specialist sixth form.
Over the 40 years, the College has continually developed into the strong and diverse organisation that it is today. The College serves over 26 different schools and ensures that young people, regardless of their backgrounds or circumstances, can strive to achieve their dreams.
EN has always been a Community Sixth Form College that seeks to continually adapt and meet the needs of our local community by giving our young people the skills that they need to help themselves and the local economy.
These opportunities clearly have an impact on our young people. In 2021, 362 students applied to Higher Education including 24 Oxford and Cambridge University applicants. The number of young people gaining places at the most competitive universities all over the UK from Edinburgh to Exeter continues to increase.
The College has an extracurricular programme that offers students experiences to expand their learning outside of the classroom across a wide range of specialist areas. From Mandarin, cybersecurity or representation in Youth Parliament, Student Voice and debating, the opportunities are endless.
EN is home to the only state funded sixth form Combined Cadet Force in the country which gives young people the chance to develop teamwork and leadership skills with the support of the military. Alongside, students can also take part in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, completing their levels through to Gold.
During this academic year, the College started delivering T Levels; the new technical qualifications that complement A levels and BTEC qualifications. Health, Healthcare Science and Digital T levels are only being taught at EN in our Borough with Finance, Accountancy and Engineering starting in September 2022.
EN’s teachers are specialists in their subject areas and know how to get the best out of 16-19-year-old students. This ensures that students fulfil their potential and feel motivated to achieve, leading to a rich college experience and progression to amazing futures.
The campus itself is an attractive option for students, with everything available in one place. There is no need to travel between different sites for lessons. The facilities are also designed to support students to achieve at the highest level. The new league standard 3g pitch, fully equipped gym and specialist sports equipment are complemented by new buildings, new classrooms and the latest IT.
2022 is a world of opportunity for our local young people and the local community should be very proud and reassured that the young people of East Norfolk are giving us all hope for the future.
