Joseph Chamberlain is a sixth form college independently governed by its own Corporation and funded by the Government. We are not a school sixth form; nor are we part of a large FE college (as is the case with most sixth form centres).
As the only Sixth Form College or General Further Education College in Birmingham or Solihull to be awarded both Beacon Status and an overall OFSTED grade 1 (Outstanding), demand for places is high. One of the reasons for our success is that we are a small college - but this means we cannot take everyone who applies. We also know that our courses may not be the right choice for everyone and we are always happy to give impartial advice about your post-16 options. Because we cannot take everyone who applies we may advise you about other colleges or schools that may be a good choice for you.
Tutors at Joseph Chamberlain have very high expectations; we expect our students to work hard and to meet demanding targets. We offer a lot of support and will work with you to get the best possible results. If you feel that the distinctive philosophy offered at JCC is right for you, apply early and, above all, work hard at school to ensure that your reference is good enough to get a place here
