Outstanding once again!

Melton Vale Sixth Form College (MV16), in Burton Road in Melton Mowbray, is delighted to announce that we have achieved ‘Outstanding’ in our most recent Ofsted inspection.

Students’ attitudes towards their learning are exceptional. They demonstrate high levels of commitment to develop their skills and knowledge. Students take ownership of their learning by completing a range of independent activities outside of the classroom. This helps them develop their knowledge and understanding beyond the requirements of their course.

Melton Vale is committed to setting a climate for learning that allows all learners to thrive. In turn a learning community that thrives on mutual understanding, respect and care is commonplace, with everyone keen to be a part of a college which allows learners to embark on a journey that stimulates them intellectually, develops them socially and is personally transforming as they plan for their next steps into adulthood.


Our mission is to educate the young people of Melton Mowbray and the surrounding area, through a curriculum that is rich in academia and personal development. This is achieved through inspirational teaching by experienced, subject specialists who in engage students in an ambitious curriculum which is purposefully designed to meet local need.

Alongside high quality teaching, students can expect to be guided and cared for by teaching staff who have wellbeing and care at the heart of the classroom. In turn, students establish a real connection at Melton Vale and respond in an independent, mature manner, achieving their ambitions and broadening their horizons.

In the decade since Melton Mowbray chose to develop a stand alone Sixth Form College, the centre has become known for exceptional results, above average added value, extensive fundraising for local charities and achieving Ofsted Outstanding.

Furthermore, a rich and dedicated alumni has formed, who are always eager to return and impart their wisdom and careers advice to present students. Ten years on, the values and ethos remain the same, which is based on the foundation of working hard and respecting our peers and working environment.
