Short inspection of Salisbury Sixth

Form College Inspection dates: 27 and 28 September 2022 Outcome Salisbury Sixth Form College continues to be a good provider. Information about this provider Salisbury Sixth Form College is classed as a free school for learners aged between 16 and 19. It is part of the Magna Learning Partnership Multi Academy Trust.

At the time of the inspection, 349 learners were working towards a study programme at level 3. Almost two thirds of these learners study a combination of A levels, choosing from over 20 different subjects that are offered by the college. Around one third of learners study one of the level 3 vocational programmes full time in subjects such as business, health and socia...l care, or sport.

The proportion of learners studying a vocational programme, in comparison to A levels, has gradually increased since the previous inspection. Around 30 learners are retaking a GCSE or functional skill qualification in English or mathematics as part of their study programme. There are five learners with high needs who attend the college.

At the previous full inspection in February 2017, the college was graded good. What is it like to be a learner with this provider? Learners work positively in a learning environment that fosters mutual respect between all who attend the college. Learners conduct themselves appropriately in lessons and in the shared spaces around the college.

However, too often, in a minority of subjects, learners arrive late to their lessons and so learning opportunities are missedLeaders have created curriculums that meet the specific needs of the local area that the college serves. For example, learners can study a combination of A-level and vocational subjects, while also retaking a GCSE qualification in English or mathematics. Learners demonstrate positive attitudes towards their study programme and are committed to achieving well.

Most learners take part in activities on a weekly basis that help them to extend their talentsFor example, learners enjoy clubs such as those for drama and netballLearners are supported effectively by their teachers. The positive relationships created between the learners and the college staff help learners to do well in the subjects that they study. They are motivated because they understand the link between the skills and behaviours they are taught in the classroom and how these are highly relevant to their future careers.
