We are a 7th Form - one step further

At Telford College, you don’t have to choose between academic achievement and career success.  We offer you the best of both worlds.  Our 7th Form is a new concept that builds on a traditional 6th form model to help you plan for your long-term career.

A standard 6th form will focus solely on getting you to university and out of the college having passed your A levels.  We have a more holistic view of our students and want to help you to achieve for life, not just for the two years you're here.
