The College is only open to our most vulnerable students (including those on EHCPs, or who are in care or have a social worker) and the children of key workers. All lessons will continue to run virtually for all students. The College opens at 9am. Please notify us before 10.30am if you wish to access the College past 12 noon so we can ensure facilities and access are available. The government has published a letter explaining how the summer grades will be calculated. The letter has been emailed to you and a link is in the news section of this website.

On Monday, 13th May 2019, 15 students from Hereford Sixth Form College were invited to Buckingham Palace to receive their Duke of Edinburgh's Gold Awards from royalty. 

Principal, Peter Cooper, was also invited to attend the event as a special guest in recognition of the College’s outstanding work in this area and the excellent enrichment opportunities it offers to students. 

An even more special guest was Bill Bryson, who talked to the students about their exploits and regaled them with a few stories of his own. The ceremony was hosted by the Earl and Countess of Wessex.
