Moving On

Our Sixth Formers face a challenging world in which they must make their way. Whilst we want your time with us to be fulfilling, rich and enjoyable, it is not an end in itself. School is just one phase of a whole life of learning and change in which you will need to show adaptability, resilience and initiative.

The attitude of a typical Stortfordian has a special quality about it, a quality which enables our young people to turn dreams into reality. An education at Bishop’s Stortford College, with all its possibilities, means you should be ready to contribute constructively to society and play a full role in it.

“The College has so many strengths but I believe it is the breadth, rather than the success of any one part, that is its true strength. You get so much more than simply passing exams. There is no other school in the area where you are able to succeed in any combination of academic, sport, drama, music, art and many other interest areas all at the same time, giving you the widest education possible and fulfilling your potential.”  SIXTH FORM LEAVER

In addition to the support that our students receive whilst at the College, ongoing support is also offered to recent leavers. There really is a world of opportunity out there and our ultimate goal, underpinned by the fantastic work of the Higher Education & Careers Department, is to instil students with the confidence, understanding and skills to take control of their future by making informed decisions, both now and later in life, whatever path they each choose to take.

Alumni of Bishop’s Stortford College, known as Old Stortfordians, can be found in so many different walks of life. Many have gone on to be highly regarded leaders and influencers in their field of work, be it industry, education, healthcare, politics, sport, the arts...

The Bishop’s Stortford College community extends beyond the school years through the Old Stortfordian Society. With thousands of members, it is a great way to keep in touch, both with each other and with the College.
