School Description

St Brendan’s Sixth Form College (St Brendan’s) is a Catholic college located to the south of Bristol. It sits in the Clifton Diocese and is the only Catholic sixth form in the south west and one of 14 in England and Wales. Students from the city and a wide surrounding area, including Bath, south Gloucestershire and north Somerset, attend the college. St Brendan’s is based on one campus and provides education for around 1,800 students aged 16 to 18 years. Around 95% of students study level 3 courses, choosing between three A levels, level 3 vocational qualifications equivalent to three A levels, or a mix of A levels and vocational qualifications. Over half of students study a mixed programme, and the very large majority study at least one A level. Around 90 students study an access to level 3 programme, which consists of level 2 vocational courses and/or GCSEs, including English and mathematics. All students follow a tutorial programme and a compulsory religion, philosophy and ethics programme. At the time of the inspection, there were approximately 45 students with high needs on academic and vocational study programmes as outlined above, including 22 students with an education, health and care plan.

St Brendan's Sixth Form College Parent Reviews

Average Parent Rating



"> In my experience, there is not enough support for students. My son's class has halved since the beginning of this academic year, purely from people dropping out of the course as they don't seem to be enjoying it. My son is trying to get an A-level in economics, but it's looking unlikely for him and he has had 3 seperate teachers in 1 year, and, at the moment, he only has one 90-minute lesson a week. He will be moving elsewhere next year.
