THE transition from school to employment or university is a vital time for young people as they start to specialise and realise their full potential.
Recently rated “good” by Ofsted, a sixth-form college like Henley provides a challenging, motivating and supportive environment where students can achieve their academic and vocational goals, try new experiences and meet lots of like-minded people.
With more than 60 high-achieving A-level and vocational diploma courses, apprenticeships and traineeships to choose from, there are many opportunities for students to find their place at The Henley College.
We welcome students from more than 100 schools across Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire into our diverse and exciting college community. We guide students into choosing the route that is right for them and empower each individual to achieve the highest success possible.
We are proud to offer a broad and diverse choice of courses at Henley and there are many courses available that do not require the student to have previously studied the subject.
These include forensic science, business studies, psychology, law and economics. We also have many exciting extra-curricular activities available that enhance and enrich student life at Henley, as well as encourage and develop new skills and interests.
These range from general interest courses like debating or public speaking to elite sports teams in rugby union, basketball and rowing.
Supporting students to strive for excellence is something all the specialist staff are firmly committed to and passionate about.
In August, the college celebrated a 98 per cent
A-level pass rate with high grades showing an improvement of three per cent on last year.
Overall, 74 per cent of
A-level grades were at A* to C and a remarkable 30 different A-level subjects achieved 100 per cent pass rates.
The college has also seen its outstanding record of BTEC results continue to improve, with more than 80 per cent achieving high grades.
As well as a strong academic provision, our students benefit from supportive personal tutors and a caring, professional student services team who offer guidance and help with most aspects of college life. Our upgrade team provides a wide range of specialist support for students with identified learning support needs or a disability, as well as those who just need a helping hand with revision, essay writing or organisation.
The Henley College is situated close to the centre of Henley, a beautiful riverside town with good transport links. Facilities are spread over two closely linked campuses and include a dedicated library, newly refurbished refectory space, student learning centres and a state-of-the-art sports hall.
