Welcome from the Principal

“At Cirencester College we hope you will find the freedom and encouragement to develop both academically and as an individual. We pride ourselves on providing THE stepping stone from School to University, Apprenticeships and employment. We hope that you will agree with our current and past students that our ‘grown up atmosphere’, ‘the right balance between independence and support’ enables you to develop the skills and confidence to succeed in your chosen path.

We are ambitious for all our students and our lecturers will challenge you to achieve high standards in all you do. They are all 16-19 specialists and we hope you will find them both inspiring and approachable. You will also benefit from an impressive pastoral care system which will provide guidance and help you cope with any issues during your time here. Key to this will be your personal tutor who will mentor you and encourage you to get the most out of the huge range of opportunities on offer, particularly our extensive recreational and academic enrichment programme.

I am immensely proud of our College, our staff and most of all, our students. Every year hundreds of students leave here with excellent results, having made new friends and having had some amazing experiences. I feel particularly fortunate that my own children also had these crucial two years at Cirencester. I hope that having read this prospectus you will come and visit us and understand why so many students from across the region take advantage of our excellent transport system to join us. We hope you will see Cirencester as a place which will help you achieve your potential!“

Best wishes

Jim Grant
