Sperrin College welcomes students from within our school community and from the wider community for whom a change in direction is likely to be beneficial.
All students must meet Admissions Criteria set out by the College and they will be expected to attend an Entry Meeting with the Principal, Head of Sixth Form or another senior member of staff.
There are two basic criteria for being a successful learner at Sperrin:
The Right Attitude – We welcome anyone who has a determination to make a fresh start at this Key Stage who has a positive attitude to work and aims to benefit from and make a positive contribution to Sixth Form life.
The Right Foundation – Having the right foundation means having gained the right levels of skills and knowledge from GCSEs to equip you to cope with your next intended course.
We educate students together regardless of their religious beliefs or academic ability.

Sixth Form students are expected to work together to establish a happy working environment in which respect and consideration for others prevail.
