16-19 Qualifications on offer
How we meet the 16-19 study programme requirements MV16 offers a wide variety of A-Level courses, ranging from the traditional facilitating subjects to courses not normally available in secondary school. In addition we offer a small number Level 3 BTEC courses. We have over 30 courses on offer and the flexibility to combine almost any subjects. Choosing subjects to study post 16 is both exciting and demanding. We place great emphasis on pre-course guidance and the college is committed to ensuring that all students start on the course that is right for them.
Our curriculum is regularly reviewed to ensure it meets a range of progression pathways based on the individual aims and aspirations of students.
Our aspirations and expectations are extremely high which have led to a number of places Oxbridge and other Russell Group universities. We are proud of our partnerships with local and national HE institutions and employers who provide a range of pathways for students who wish to follow either an academic or degree apprenticeship pathway as part of their next phase of learning.
Support for learning and success extends far beyond the classroom. Built into the working week are opportunities for independent study and enrichment activities along with time to meet with a dedicated team of academic tutors. At MV16 students benefit from their own personal tutor who will monitor their progress, achievement and approach to learning on a regular basis offering one-to-one support.
The college prides itself on offering specialist A-Level teaching combining education with a wide and varied range of enrichment and curriculum opportunities that give you the very best education and preparation for further study at university or application for higher apprenticeships. The working day starts at 8.50 am and finishes at 3.30 pm Monday–Friday. However, most students make the use of the extended working hours with the college being open from 8.00 am to 5.00 pm.

Students who haven't achieved either a grade 4-9 or a A* to C in GCSE maths and/or English (or an equivalent qualification) are required to continue studying an approved qualification in these subjects post-16. For the 2021-22 academic year we do not have any students on roll who fulfil this criteria.

Values and Ethos

Statement of Values and EthosOne of our greatest strengths is the positive ethos and culture that has been created at MV16 together with our outstanding facilities. Our ethos and approach to learning is frequently commented on by visitors to the college. At MV16 we believe that people make a college and the positive relationships between students and staff are highly reflective of this.
Our aim is to fully develop students’ skills, values and interests beyond the classroom, so they develop as articulate and confident young people. We provide an extensive extra-curricular programme with high levels of engagement from the majority of our students.
Nothing is more important than enriching young people’s lives and we pride ourselves at MV16 with the wide variety of opportunities we can offer our students in conjunction with their academic study.
We care deeply about our students and staff and expect everyone to work hard and be kind.
