Sidmouth College is proud of its achievements in recent years. Alongside the academic success of our students we pride ourselves on the range of opportunities open to our students and the development of a learning environment that puts the well being of our students first. This is reflected by our recent Healthy Schools Award. We also aim to help students make a positive contribution to the life of the College and our community, thereby encouraging qualities of responsibility and leadership.
As a Specialist Technology College, we have been able to broaden our curriculum to include vocational as well as traditional courses and build strong links with the local business community. This is reflected in our recent award of Investors in Enterprise and Work Related Learning. We have a strong and growing Sixth Form, in which students achieve well and develop a positive, outward-looking approach which will stand them in good stead as they move on to Higher Education or the world of work.

|SPECIALIST TECHNOLOGY SCHOOL|
The specialist schools programme is all about raising academic standards. Achieving technology
status required us to identify challenging targets for raising attainment across the College and
the means by which they would be achieved. We all recognise that setting targets is one thing
achieving them another. However, staff at Sidmouth College are committed to their students and the
additional resourcing that the specialist status has brought has been put to excellent use. We work
closely with our partner primary schools and the local community.
In the Sixth Form at Sidmouth we treat all students as individuals, we respect you as you are, whatever your personality, background, beliefs or nationality. We recognise that our students have a whole range of aims and expectations and we try to help you become whatever you want to be.
Our Sixth Form is different from anything you will have experienced so far in your school career: you will have your own well equipped building; you will meet new people and make new friends; you will try out new activities and work in a new atmosphere; you will have new opportunities and face new challenges.
The Sixth Form at Sidmouth is academically successful but it is also a secure and happy place. Our students know how to work hard but they have fun too.
Above all else, the Sixth Form at Sidmouth is a dynamic place. We are not content with the status quo. We have an extensive and ever changing enrichment programme, we have introduced new subjects, new activities and new facilities and we will continue to do so. This is a Sixth Form that is going places, as evidenced by the ever increasing number of students who choose to stay at or return to Sidmouth College.
