Courses Offered

At Post-16 we offer different pathways to suit the needs of all our students entering our Sixth Form. Please take a look at our Prospectus for a complete list of courses available.

All our study programmes are focused on progression to the next level of education, a traineeship or apprenticeship, or other employment.

At Whalley Range Sixth Form College you can study either Advanced Level courses or Level 1, 2 or 3 Vocational courses. Currently, we have students following Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 pathways with the Level 3 pathway further offering the academic or vocational routes. The key to success is ensuring students are carefully recruited onto the correct pathway for them to achieve their full potential.
