Unlock your full potential with Newark College. Newark College offers a relaxed and friendly learning environment for school leavers, adult and overseas students, on full and part time courses in a range of exciting subjects
Welcome to Newark College
Newark Sixth is a brand new development offering A Brighter Future for A Level and post-16 education in the Newark area. Newark Sixth sees the team from Lincoln College's highly successful A Level Centre, one of the largest sixth forms in the region, offering courses in Newark as part of a range of exciting options. Newark Sixth will be an enjoyable and friendly place to study, but ambition, a strong work ethic, success and progression to university and careers will be the focus for our students.
Students will benefit from what Ofsted considered to be 'outstanding support for students'. Activities and educational trips are important parts of learning at the college, offering extended learning opportunities and the excitement of new experiences.
Last year students on our courses achieved a 96% pass rate at A Level and superb vocational course results. Three students progressed to Cambridge and many others to a host of universities such as St. Andrews, Nottingham, Lancaster, Hull, Keele, Aberdeen, Leicester, Nottingham Trent and Imperial College London. All courses in Newark Sixth attract 'UCAS' points, which are needed for entry to university.
Options for study:
1. Take three subjects at AS level (or four if you have particularly strong GCSE results). Students can choose from the 7 subjects available at Newark (English Language, English Literature, History, Law, Mathematics, Psychology & Sociology) and choose to combine them with the further 18 A Levels delivered in Lincoln. A free bus will transport students to Lincoln and return.
2. Pick from a range of A Level equivalent vocational courses on the Newark campus from Monday - Wednesday morning and combine them with an A Level at the end of the week. Subjects include Business, Travel and Tourism, Photography and Sport.
3. Study one full-time, level 3 vocational course (e.g. a BTEC Diploma) throughout the week. Options include Media, Sport, Graphic Design, Performing Arts and Art and Design.
Courses for school leavers
Alongside the courses available at Newark Sixth, school leavers can also choose from a wide variety of courses in areas as diverse as Performing Arts, Carpentry and Joinery and Hair and Beauty.
