The details of support available can change, so before you apply it's best to speak to the named contact to check exactly what they offer.

Here at Cirencester sixth-form college, we strongly believe that financial situation or being a care leaver shouldn't be a barrier to you starting, and being successful, in completing your education at this level. We offer a supportive, safe environment in which all students have the opportunity to surpass their goals.

For those leaving care, information, advice and guidance are crucial in you feeling comfortable about choosing courses, somewhere to live and understanding how you can afford to be at college. We have supportive staff who will help and advise you on these areas, and ensure that you are making the best decisions for you.
