The College

 Howell’s Sixth Form College gave me the chance of an excellent education in an environment which allows me to further my extra-curricular activities at the same time. I found the choice of subjects the College offers, and the outstanding teaching to be very enticing. Howell's presented by far the best opportunity around. 

We live in exciting and fast-changing times, when providing an outstanding, progressive and well-rounded education is more important than ever. Howell's College combines a diverse and exciting enrichment programme with the academic rigour for which Howell's School is renowned, employing flexible and individual teaching styles as we prepare our students for higher education and beyond.

Of course exam results matter, and at Howell's our students consistently achieve excellent results in all areas of the curriculum, giving them access to the top universities in the UK and overseas. However, that is just one aspect of an education at Howell's College, and the pupils are encouraged to show ambition, assurance and vision from within and beyond the classroom.

Finally, read what some of our sixth formers have to say …

 The College has successfully achieved its goal of creating a co-ed environment and maintaining the high standard of education. This co-ed system has meant that a lot more options are available to the students of this school, varying from charity associations to a football team! If that isn’t great I cannot imagine what is!

 The main reason I chose to leave my school and come to Howell’s Sixth Form College was the chance of an excellent educational opportunity in an environment which offered me the chance to further my extra-curricular activities at the same time. I found the wide-ranging choice of subjects the College offers and also the already outstanding record of teaching in the other subjects to be very enticing. The College presented by far the best opportunity around.

 Howell’s is perfect for me, it really is. I have so many more opportunities here and I’m already becoming more self-confident. I made new friends quickly and all the different clubs and societies are really great. The Critical Thinking course is also really interesting and useful. The whole atmosphere of the school is great. I really feel like I belong here.
