Richard Huish College, stepping-stone for so many young people from Wellington, is on course to be voted the UK’s top six-form college in an annual survey organised by the authoritiative Times Educational Supplement.
Huish, already the‘Ofsted Outstanding’ College, on South Road, Taunton, is the only sixth form College in the South West of England to be shortlisted and is up against seven other finalists bidding for the title.
“To be a finalist with so many other top Sixth Form Colleges is in itself a huge achievement that is down to the students’ hard work and the commitment from all the staff at Huish. As a non-selective college, what we are most proud of at Huish is our ability to work with students and help them achieve results beyond their expectations,” said college principal John Abbott.
Richard Huish College consistently achieves some of highest success rates in the country and is academically the highest performing College in the South West. Huish is also in the top performing 15% of all schools and colleges in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, for adding value to a students’ education. The College has 2,400 learners studying A Levels, Vocational, Apprenticeships and Traineeships, Degrees and Professional Accountancy.
