Welcome to MC6
MC6 is a dedicated sixth form centre within Middlesbrough College’s multimillion pound campus at Middlehaven. We offer a distinctive learning experience for students who choose to study A Levels here, creating an environment which makes the transition from school to college far easier for students.
Middlesbrough College Sixth Form achieved a fantastic pass rate of 100% in 19 subjects and an overall pass rate of 97% in 2016. More students than ever before have gained A* to B grades including a record number who achieved an A* in Maths.
More students than ever before are choosing to study with us. For this reason, we recently extended MC6 and how have 13 new classrooms, a physics lab, student study area with the latest MAC computers and a fantastic student social space. We also have our own Café for A Level students to relax and socialise in on their study breaks. The £6.5million pound investment in this modern and technologically advanced facility represents an important development in A Level provision in the region. There is such a deep well of talent in the area, and the young people of the Tees Valley deserve no less than the very best - the best teachers, the best facilities and the best prospects.
Choosing Middlesbrough College also means that you can benefit from the state of the art facilities on our main campus. This includes our large, open plan learning resource centre with over 200 computers and a range of the latest books and journals. The new STEM Centre also includes two brand new fully resourced laboratories for wet chemistry and biology. This will give our science students practical experience in a realistic working environment.
Our students value and speak highly of the working relationships they have with their teachers, as we pride ourselves on promoting a culture of mutual understanding and respect. Over 97% of students were happy with the overall quality of the teaching they received at MC6 and one of the reasons why so many of our A Level students’ progress onto university level education.
Set aside the fantastic achievements of our students, and the wonderful facilities offered by our new building, also of equal importance is the support that we offer to nurture and fulfil the potential and promise of young people. These ideas are best embodied in the values of MC6, which can be expressed as follows:
• A College where academic endeavour and excellent teaching are the norm
• A College where students and their parents, peers and teachers work in partnership
• A College of high aspiration and achievement
• A College which is inspirational and full of energy
• A College where students become successful and motivated ready for university, work and life
We would also like to take this opportunity to pass on to you our very best wishes for your exams this year. We hope that you join us at MC6: the future of Sixth Form Education in the Tees Valley.
