Welcome to Ashton Sixth Form College. I am very proud to be Centre Principal at this successful, inclusive and vibrant college and I am delighted that you are considering joining us.  

Our approach here is simple. We put our students at the heart of everything we do, treating you as an individual, nurturing your talents and igniting your passions. We have high expectations for each and every one of our students coupled with an understanding that you can only achieve your potential in an environment where you feel a sense of belonging and where you feel happy and safe. These things are very important to us. Our staff at ASFC are passionate, highly skilled and caring, and they will go the extra mile to ensure that you feel valued, supported and appropriately challenged.  

We are very proud of our students’ achievements which are consistently outstanding and place ASFC as one of the highest performing colleges in the country. Crucially, our students’ achievements enable them to progress onto their chosen next steps, whether this is taking up a place at a top university or securing a highly competitive employment or apprenticeship opportunity. However, ASFC is more than just a place to study. We are here to help you broaden your horizons. As such, we strongly encourage our students to engage fully with our extensive enrichment programme which includes additional courses, an array of visiting speakers and a wide range of trips and visits. Ultimately, we want you to move on from Ashton Sixth Form College with skills, confidence, excellent qualifications and importantly, choices.
