Ashfield Post 16 Centre: spaces available now
Ashfield Post 16 Centre has some of the finest facilities in Nottinghamshire, and is now encouraging students to apply for a place, as they take the next step in their education.
Ashfield Post 16 Centre is the ultimate hybrid, providing the benefits of a college (a wide range of courses and fantastic facilities, set apart from the main school) combined with those of a school (sustained support and guidance to enable students to achieve their potential).
This is a formula that clearly works, with an A Level pass rate of 100%.
The choice of subjects on offer rivals that of most colleges: over 30 A Level/Level 3 courses all taught by subject specialists, and a great selection of vocational subjects taught by ex-industry professionals in purpose-built units/workshops/salons.
It’s impossible to talk about Ashfield without mentioning the facilities which, without a doubt, are exceptional. There’s a full-sized athletics track, swimming pool, tiered-seat theatre, photographic studio and dark room, sprung floor dance studio, hair and beauty salons… and the list goes on!
So, there’s a great choice of subjects and amazing facilities, but where Ashfield really comes into its own is the invaluable support that it provides for its students, both academically and personally, and which plays no small part in the amazing results the school sees annually.
“Here at Ashfield Post 16, we work hard to ensure that each student gets a very personalised experience,” says Head of Ashfield Post 16 Centre, Linda Maguire. “We get to know them, then support them and challenge them to be the best version of themselves so that they are ready to start their adult life successfully and as rounded, happy individuals.”
Little wonder, then, that students flock to the Centre every year from over 20 different schools across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, with many courses becoming quickly oversubscribed.
