We offer a number of qualifications which meet the needs of employers and give students the skills required for the workplace.We have one of the largest ranges of A levels found in the country and offer a total of 54 different subjects in both academic and vocational qualifications.Over the past few years our students consistently achieve the highest average QCA point score per student for level 3 courses out of all the further education and tertiary colleges in Greater London.Each year, we achieve excellent results in both our academic and vocational qualifications, with a considerable number of subjects and qualifications achieving 100% pass rates.For the past two years, we have enjoyed official recognition in the national press as the leading state provider for this qualification. We are well established in running this highly regarded qualification which increases in popularity each year. Our results are well above the global pass rate and students go on to some of the world's top universities.We send over 1,100 students to higher education each year. In fact, we send more students to university from a single site than any other school or college in the UK. We have excellent links with a large number of UK universities and host an annual Higher Education Fair where many universities are represented.Students are given plenty of advice and support when applying to university and we have a specialist advice service for Oxford and Cambridge candidates and those applying for medicine, dentistry and veterinary science.Many of our vocational courses involve a considerable amount of industry experience which gives the students the skills needed to go into employment and over the years we have developed good links with a number of medium sized and large companies that are able to offer our students work placements. In addition, each year, our Careers Centre arranges a Work and Training Fair where a range of employers and training providers promote the opportunities available within these organisations.We aim to give all students the best possible learning experience in an environment that actively promotes mutual respect. We have a large student support team and offer an outstanding and comprehensive range of services and support.

Our aim is to offer something for everyone and our enrichment activities give students the opportunity to meet new people outside their subject areas and for them to have a great time whilst they are learning.
