Meet the team
“We recognise that our BG6 students are young adults who deserve an exceptional experience, we also understand their needs and that they will excel best in a respectful and safe setting, which is why we operate an open-door policy so we’re as accessible as possible to all students.
Whilst we know that academic success in an environment where outstanding teaching leads to outstanding learning and outcomes is crucial for their futures, we also appreciate that our young people should be inspired, which is why we offer wide-ranging opportunities for self-transformation so our students enjoy a truly enriching experience both in and out of the college environment.
Our commitment is to ensure we put students first and we will do everything in our power to enable our young people to be happy and successful now and in the future.”
Sanam Ali, Post 16 Respect Lead
“We know that academic progress needs to be an area of focus, particularly at this level, which is why we have a designated Key Stage 5 Pedagogy specialist in place. This ensures the right support is provided and students are approached in the right way, in order to both maintain and raise standards for teaching and learning.”
Sarah Glass, Key Stage 5 Pedagogy and Progress Lead
“Students need to know they have someone to turn to for general guidance and advice. We place significant emphasis on this to ensure our students have the support they need, when they need it. Across the team, there is always someone who can listen to them.”

“Applying for universities using the UCAS system can be daunting. That’s why we’re mindful of providing the relevant support and guidance so that our students have the best possible opportunity of successfully gaining their first choice place.”

“We believe that partnership work is central to unlocking the potential of all students. We work with local higher education institutions, which provides our students with a significant relationships as they begin the journey towards university study. We have also developed our Pathways Programme for students who want to take the direct route into the world of work and require business contacts or work experience placements.”
