New Sixth Form College opening in South Liverpool


An exciting new Sixth Form College will open its doors in South Liverpool this September, offering a rich, innovative curriculum and state of the art facilities to students from across Liverpool, Merseyside and beyond.

The all new All Saints Sixth Form College – a collaboration between Enterprise South Liverpool Academy (ESLA) and The Academy of St Francis of Assisi which are both part of The Liverpool Joint Catholic and Church of England Academies Trust – will be a bespoke separate facility based on the current ESLA campus. 

Enterprise South Liverpool Academy is to be renamed The Academy of St Nicholas, representing the Trust’s unique joint faith, Christian ethos. A holistic approach to the development of young people will be at the heart of All Saints Sixth Form College and students will benefit from the Academy’s state of the art £26 million building with facilities including modern ICT rooms, ‘breakout’ spaces for independent learning and eight acres of outdoor space.

The Executive Headteacher of the Trust Mrs Anne Pontifex, who comes with a proven track record of excellence in education, said: “The introduction of All Saints Sixth Form College is great news for the region. The all new, innovative Sixth Form will focus on quality post-16 education in a caring and nurturing environment. Different routes to further education and employment will be available for students as well a varied enrichment programme dedicated to developing personal and social skills needed for the world of work.”

“All Saints Sixth Form College will have strong community, education and business links which will allow students to prosper and achieve their aspirations. As part of The Liverpool Joint Catholic and Church of England Academies Trust, the new Sixth Form College will significantly enhance the educational opportunities for young people.”

The establishment of All Saints Sixth Form College will bring substantial benefits to students across Merseyside. The dedicated Sixth Form Centre will be an innovative hub for post-16 education, offering young people high quality careers advice, UCAS guidance and pastoral support.

Students will have the opportunity to take part in the prestigious University Scholars Programme (USP) with Trust bursaries available to high attaining students to support them through university. The dedicated Scholars initiative will also support applications to Oxford and Cambridge, Russell Group Universities and higher level apprenticeship programmes.

The launch evening for All Saints Sixth Form College takes place on Thursday 2nd February 2017 and will provide students with an opportunity to experience the facilities, meet staff and find out more about the wide range of academic and vocational courses on offer plus the vast array of enrichment opportunities.

Subjects on offer will include computer science; a range of creative media and ICT courses; A Level English; humanities; business and law; mathematics and further maths, as well as all sciences, sports, health and fitness.

A full range of social sciences will be offered including psychology, sociology and health and social Care, childcare and theology. Technologies on offer will include hospitality, product design and engineering. Excellence in the arts will include A Level and vocational courses in art, fashion, photography, music, theatre studies and dance.

Leisure facilities include a fully equipped gymnasium and Astroturf. A full size auditorium, 3D theatre and Apple Mac computer suites will aid students’ post-16 learning experience.

All Saints Sixth Form College will build on the strong foundations of post-16 education at The Academy of St Francis of Assisi and ESLA. Enterprise South Liverpool Academy was awarded the Career Aspiration Award at the Educate Awards, highlighting the Trust’s dedication to inspiring and challenging students to be the best they can be.

Last year, ESLA Sixth Form celebrated record results at A Level. As well as beating the national average for A* A grades, 50% of students achieved A*, A, and B grades. With a 100% pass rate at BTEC, the average grade was distinction.

The new standalone Sixth Form College will continue with this success by broadening its curriculum and enrichment offering and increasing its intake of students to include year 11 students from across the region.
