Student Testimonials

"I chose Salford City Academy Sixth Form because I wanted to carry on my studies with familiar faces and use the good working relationships I had with the staff to help me do well in my courses.  I loved my time in Sixth Form so much I returned for a third year of study!  The teachers, and their support, were the best thing about my time at the academy; they encourage you to be independent in learning tasks but also know when is best to step in and help you when you need one-to-one support.  There were many opportunities through trips to find out career options and how my qualifications could help me get into the beauty industry - now I'm about to start my dream job."

“Coming to SCA Sixth Form has really helped me to be a more confident learner. By using positive teacher support and feedback, I have developed my independent learning skills and improved as a student. I have always wanted to be a Marine Biologist but it seemed like a dream that was so far away. Now, by working hard and using support from tutors who guided me with my University application, I have 2 offers to study Wildlife Conservation and Biology where I can specialise in Marine Biology. I am really happy with this and I really believe that I can achieve my career dream thanks to the help I have had from the staff in the Sixth Form.”

“In my experience at Salford City Academy Sixth Form, staff members have been extremely supportive. Smaller class sizes in the Sixth Form mean that teachers can dedicate more time to helping us in the classroom. There has also been so much support out of the classroom, with everything from sessions about finances to practical skills like fixing taps – all to prepare students and develop skills for the future. Teachers were also extremely supportive throughout my application to university, helping me through the process step by step. I have now got an offer to study Child Nursing at the University of Manchester.”
