Principal's welcome

The transition from school to employment or university is a vital time for young people as they start to specialise and realise their full potential. A sixth-form college like Henley will provide you with a challenging, motivating and supportive environment where you can reach your academic goals, try new experiences and meet lots of like-minded people.

We are proud to offer a broad and diverse choice of courses at Henley and there are many courses available that do not require you to have previously studied the subject. These include Forensic Science, Business Studies, Psychology, Geology and Economics. From September 2015 we are delighted to offer A Level Music Technology and Creative Media (Games Development). We also have many exciting extra-curricular activities available that enhance and enrich student life at Henley, as well as encourage and develop new skills and interests. These range from casual interest courses like debating or public speaking, to elite sports teams in rugby union, basketball and rowing.

Supporting students to strive for excellence is something all the specialist staff are firmly committed to and incredibly passionate about. As well as a strong academic provision, you will benefit from supportive Personal Tutors and a caring, professional Student Services team who offer guidance and help with most aspects of College life. Our Upgrade team provide a wide range of specialist support for students with identified learning support needs or a disability, as well as those who just need a helping hand with revision, essay writing or organisation.

Please take the time to explore this website and find out why sixth form college is the ideal place to start the route to your future. The Henley College is a really special place to study and I am proud to be its Principal. I strongly encourage you to come and visit us in order to find out what makes our students here happy, successful, motivated and challenged.
