Our dedicated Sixth Form Centre

We are proud of our dedicated Sixth Form Centre, MC6! In 2023, 50% of our students achieved high grades, first-class teaching and state of the art facilities.

If you choose to study A Levels with us at MC6, you’ll pick 3 A Level subjects which will make up your study programme. We also offer a range of A Level equivalent applied courses through our Mix it up programme and several T Levels. All subjects are taught within Middlesbrough College Sixth Form by our specialist A Level tutors.

A Level students will be based in MC6, a modern, vibrant environment which promotes independent learning and study. Unlike a school sixth form, students can meet other young people from all walks of life and be treated like an adult, with independent study periods and the chance to plan your own learning.

Raising Aspirations

We want you to reach your full potential, so that’s why we created our Raising Aspirations programme! This programme is for academically gifted students to prepare you to study at leading Universities. Our specialist coaches and teachers offer activities, events and support throughout your time at MC6 to provide you with the best possible preparation for University!
