And to boldly enter the next chapter of your life after building confidence through study and enrichment and the Xaverian values that have supported our students for 160 years.

You’ll already know about our amazing academic achievements.

That we’ve been rated Grade One – Outstanding – by Ofsted. That you don’t just come here to learn but put your lessons to the test whether in exciting study spaces, or the workplace on industry placements.

Our enrichment programme is flexible around your timetable with activities taking place during lunchtimes, lesson blocks and after college so you should be able to fit your enrichment activities around your college timetable. Our enrichment programme is created with your interests in mind and we always welcome your input on extra activities you think we could offer.
