Whatever your dreams and ambitions – EN is your route to an outstanding future… 

East Norfolk Sixth Form College is the outstanding choice for over 1600 students because of its 38-year reputation for success and is the only Ofsted ‘Good’ college across all areas for Greater Yarmouth and Waveney.

The College offers a varied curriculum with over 80 A Level, BTEC Level 3 and Route 3 subjects. With a 99% A Level pass rate and 100% pass rate in 40+ subjects, students achieve at the highest level.

EN is a top college locally for progression. 56% of students that progress to Russell Group universities achieve a First-Class degree, over 20% higher than the national average for State and Independent sectors. 9 students secured their places at Oxford and Cambridge in 2020, a record-breaking number for EN. But we are not just about students progressing to university, more than 25% progress directly to employment and more than 10% go on to apprenticeships. EN will also be the first provider East of Norwich to offer the new T Level qualifications from September 2021 including Digital Design and Development, Digital Business Services, Health, Healthcare Science and Science.

EN also offers a wide range of extracurricular activities not available anywhere else locally. Students with aspirations to be professional footballers or pursue a career in sport have a unique opportunity too as EN is the only college locally with the prestigious Norwich City Community Sports Foundation Elite Football, Elite Xtra and Sports Coaching programmes. A state of the art 3G pitch, 800 capacity stadium and clubhouse is also on its way. The College is also one of only 25 FA Super Hubs, placing EN at the forefront of sporting innovation and excellence. EN is also home to the Combined Cadet Force (CCF), the only one in the local area and is an approved centre for the Duke of Edinburgh Awards.

Students choose EN because of the freedom an independent specialist Sixth Form College experience offers. Located in the very heart of the Gorleston community and likened to a mini-university campus, the college is large enough to offer a wide choice but small enough for personalised experiences.

Our Mission

“Excellence and Care: the College is working for its Community”


The College will give all learners the best possible opportunities to achieve and fulfil their individual potential through high quality teaching, learning and assessment and a broad range of provision, which offers choice and progression.


The College will provide a supportive environment, which responds to individual needs and encourages respect.


The College will serve our local and national community by responding and adapting to the needs of our learners and of our stakeholders.

Mission Focus

Our core values represent the guiding principles of the College.  They support the delivery of our mission and will drive the direction of the College’s leadership.  We believe that outstanding performance cannot be achieved unless we operate by the same values. 

The College Governors undertook a review of its Mission in June 2012.  Following that strategic review, the College is undertaking a process of consultation with students, staff and stakeholders on the following set of core values to underpin our work:


We promote excellence in order to provide our students with the best possible opportunities to equip them for their future. An ethos of reflective and shared good practice will underpin a culture of high aspirations, high standards and high achievement which is highly valued by our students and the communities we serve. 


We value our students, staff and governors and their talent and within a framework of support will nurture each student to develop his/her personal potential.


We embrace diversity and promote equality of opportunity within a framework of mutual respect.


We adhere to high ethical and professional standards in our work and relationships. We are committed to working hard and promoting equity and fairness.
