Created in 1999 with the annexing of an adjacent site, and in response to parental concerns over a lack of appropriate post 16 education, St. Mary’s was able to establish a 6th form College with the specific aim of providing continuing education and therapy for our young people.

Whilst there are dedicated College buildings, students also have access to the full range of facilities within the school.  Programmes are specifically tailored to the individual needs of the students and there is an emphasis on developing independence within themselves and about in the community.

Realising the greatest levels of academic achievement, personal self-confidence and independence possible are fundamental aims of the post 16 curriculum.
