7 reasons to study at SJD

Congratulations to all those who collected their GCSE results today.  

It was great to see so many new faces for the first day of enrolment here at Sir John Deane’s as students mark the beginning of their journey with us and join one of the country’s leading sixth form colleges.

If you are still undecided on the best A level choices for you, then here are just a few of the reasons why students choose to study here. 


Sir John Deane's is now the second highest achieving sixth form college in the country and has been Ofsted 'Outstanding' for over a decade.  


This year’s A level results saw Sir John Deane’s tradition of success continued with a 99% pass rate and 85% of students achieving at least one A* or A.


A £28 million transformation of the College has created a world-class learning environment, with outstanding classroom and outdoor facilities - including our very own Boat House! 


We offer a huge range of subjects - mainly A level - many of which are not offered by smaller sixth forms. 


Students enjoy an extensive programme of enrichment activities including sport, performing arts, music and academic clubs and societies. 


Passionate, engaging and driven, Sir John Deane’s teachers love to teach and love to learn. 


Students have travelled far and wide with a world of opportunity to discover life beyond the classroom.
