School Description

Ashton Sixth-Form College (ASFC) was established in 1980 following a reorganisation of secondary education in the borough of Tameside. It became a 16 to 19 Academy in February 2019. ASFC offers a range of provision for 16 to 19 yearold students who follow a full-time study programme, as well as adult and higher education provision. Students are drawn mainly from Tameside schools, but a significant and growing number come from schools in the neighbouring boroughs. At the time of the inspection, 2,158 students studied education programmes for young people, 104 followed adult learning programmes and eleven students had high needs. The vast majority of 16 to 19 year-old students study A levels, a full vocational programme or a ‘mixed’ A-level and vocational pathway at level 3. Students at level 2 follow a vocational programme alongside GCSE English and/or mathematics. Most adult students study English and/or mathematics at level 2 or below. Other adult qualifications are based around the development and training of teaching assistants.
