Welcome to Higher and Adult Education at Ashton Sixth Form College

Each year, we welcome hundreds of learners on a range of part time and full time adult and university courses, whether you are looking to further your qualifications, re-train or simply want to learn a new skill.

"Adult learners make good progress" and  "the proportion of adults who are successful... is well above the rate for similar providers"

Click here to read our creative project ‘Having a Voice’.  This is the culmination of a collaborative creative project between our Foundation Art students in Higher Education, our A level students and our Creative Writing group in Adult Education. The project is to mark the 100th anniversary of The Representation of the People Act 1918 which extended voting rights to some women. The project is named “Having a Voice”. We are so impressed by the students’ contributions to this project and we hope you are too and that you enjoy absorbing yourself in “Having a Voice”.
