Introducing… South Sefton Campus
Posted on November 9, 2017 Hugh Baird
As of 1st December 2017, South Sefton College will become part of Hugh Baird College and the campus will be called the South Sefton Campus.
The South Sefton College name and branding will cease to exist and A-levels will be delivered in a dedicated Sixth Form Centre on the South Sefton Campus.
The Sixth Form Centre will continue to have a distinctive high quality A-level provision which will ensure that all school leavers in South Sefton and the surrounding area can be guaranteed a place in a specialist centre on a course that is right for them and their career ambitions.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why is this happening?
Two years ago, an independent report was commissioned by the Colleges to identify how they could further co-operate to best serve the local area. This report informed the Liverpool City Region Area Review, as part of the national programme of Government Area Reviews. The decision is based on a strategy and shared desire to offer the very best post-16 education for those living in Sefton and the Liverpool City Region.
How will this affect current students?
This will not affect current students in any way.
How will this affect the local community?
This evolution offers an attractive and competitive post 16 offer for South Sefton and the surrounding area and will create a financially stable and sustainable campus.
I am planning to start at South Sefton College in September 2018 – what should I do?
If you are planning to come to South Sefton College in September 2018, you should currently apply via the South Sefton College website (www.southsefton.com/apply). When South Sefton College becomes part of Hugh Baird College on 1st December 2017, you will apply via the Hugh Baird College website (www.hughbaird.ac.uk).
Will students be expected to travel between campuses?
No, students will be based at one of the campuses for their main programme of study. There may be some opportunities for students to join together to participate in events, sporting or other enrichment activities.
Will the curriculum offer be the same?
Yes. At the moment there are no plans to change the curriculum offer. Students will still be able to study high quality A-level and BTEC programmes at the South Sefton Campus.
Would I be able to take A-levels at the South Sefton Campus and a BTEC at the Balliol Road Campus (Hugh Baird College)?
This would be discussed on an individual basis as timetable clashes would need to be considered.
