Service Description

Welcome to Bishop Challoner Sixth Form, the highest achieving Sixth Form in Tower Hamlets! Our students achieve above the national average and are well prepared for the competitive rigors of University and the job market. If you wish to achieve this is the 6th Form for you!

We offer a wide range of A Level and BTEC subjects. We will meet with you and your parents to ensure that you are studying the correct subjects and pathway. We will support you in the UCAS process and help you decide the most appropriate choice of course and University. Each year we have a large number of applicants to Oxbridge and the Russell group Universities.

Your GCSE grades are important in the choice of subjects or courses that you choose. It is very important that you achieve at least a Grade C in Mathematics and English language. If you wish to study A Levels you should aim to achieve Grade B in Mathematics and English language.

The college offers a large number of work related opportunities. We support our students in getting work experience, mentoring and Internships from a large number of Companies and organisations. We have close links with companies in the City and Canary wharf.

Bishop Challoner is a Catholic College but we welcome students from all faiths and denominations. We are a caring and friendly community that is inclusive to all. You will be supported and helped to achieve – we will help you be the best you can be.

We would really like you to come and study with us in Bishop Challoner. Please contact us with any questions or queries you may have.

We look forward to working with you.

Additional Information

Additional Information

You can be with us for 2 or 3 years and we will support you all the way through with individual attention. Your tutor is always available to you. If there are issues affecting your academic or social life we have counsellors available. Students with disabilities or those who need extra learning help are well supported.

We are interested in your progression and will monitor your achievement to help you make the right choices at appropriate times. If you have made the wrong subject choice or are concerned that you are not keeping up with your studies we will find the time to talk it through, offer good advice and support.

Unlike many bigger schools and colleges, the atmosphere here is intimate, caring and friendly. Teaching is usually in small classes of about 10, allowing us to give you individual attention.

We are generous with teaching time compared with our competitors; each AS level is given 5 hours.

We offer support for English and Mathematics so that those who missed the 5 GCSE at A* to C threshold can progress on to higher education. We understand that many young people have problems that might lead to difficulties achieving the desired exam results at that particular time.

The ASDAN Certificate of Personal Effectiveness is taken by all Level 3 students and gives each student an extra 70 UCAS points. This will improve the quality of Universities students can apply to. It will also broaden the range of courses for which they can apply.

We also offer specialist teaching to those students who have English as an additional language and require intensive language support.

The most gifted students are also supported and challenged. Master-classes and Summer University links are in place. As well as being offered 4 AS levels, Critical Thinking and Philosophy & Ethics AS classes are offered to those who can achieve the highest grades.
