Welcome to Post 16

Head’s Welcome


Helston College's Post-16 Education opens doors to a world of opportunities. How? By helping you gain more than just academic knowledge. Today's world needs more than that.


As a small college, we have time to get to know every student and help them develop all the skills needed to succeed in today's world -confidence, communication, resilience, and problem-solving capabilities.


At Helston, we understand the importance of personalised attention. Our small size ensures that you receive individualised support to help you excel. Whether clarifying complex concepts, exploring various career options, or offering personal mentorship, our dedicated team is committed to guiding and inspiring you on your unique path.


And we value flexibility and choice. That's why we offer diverse academic pathways, from A-levels to diplomas and vocational qualifications, allowing you to pursue what truly excites you. And uniquely, we will enable you to mix course types, so if you want to combine A-levels with vocational courses, we fully support your ambitions. Whatever you want to achieve, we're here to make it happen.


Speaking of achievements, our track record speaks for itself. A staggering 90% of our students receive offers from their first-choice universities, with many securing places at prestigious institutions like Oxford, Cambridge, and other Russell Group universities.


This is more than just due to our students achieving great grades. It's our focus on leadership, confidence, communication and other skills that universities and employers value.


That's also why students heading directly for apprenticeships and employment land incredible placements at leading organisations such as Goonhilly, SERCO, and Francis Clark Accountants. Not only this, but we also take pride in being recognised by the Royal Navy for our exceptional support and guidance for prospective Armed Forces candidates.


Whether your dreams lie in higher education, apprenticeships, or a military career, Helston College is your pathway to success. Your goals become our goals, and we're here to support you every step of the way.
