A New Sixth Form for West Suffolk
Abbeygate Sixth Form College is opening in Bury St Edmunds in 2019. The College will be located on the playing field at King Edward VI School, off Beetons Way.
The new college is a collaboration between the West Suffolk College-sponsored Suffolk Academies Trust (which includes Suffolk One in Ipswich) and local upper schools including King Edward VI School and Sybil Andrews Academy in Bury St Edmunds.
The college aims to replicate the success of Suffolk One, an outstanding sixth form college, and will offer more than 40 A-Level courses to 16-19 year olds from across the whole of West Suffolk.
Curriculums will be timetabled to allow students to study high level specialist vocational qualifications at West Suffolk College alongside their A Levels if appropriate.
