It’s an exciting time, planning for your future after GCSEs.

Thank you for your interest in discovering more about Burnley College Sixth Form Centre and the Outstanding courses we offer after GCSEs.

Due to popular demand and a limit on numbers attending due to Covid-19, our September, October and November Open Events are now fully booked.

However, we would still very much welcome the opportunity to talk to you about the amazing options open to you at the country’s Number 1 College.*

We understand you may have a career goal you’re working towards already; you may be passionate about a subject – or curious to study something new and exciting; you may have your sights set on university study or be keen to start your career as a Themis Apprentice; you may still be considering your options.

Whatever your vision for the future – there’s a place for you at Burnley College Sixth Form Centre – and we want to offer you the chance to discover just what that looks like.

Covid-19 may be disrupting life on so many levels but here at Burnley College we’re still offering you the opportunity to find out more about College life – either in person or digitally – whichever you prefer.
