Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Connell Sixth Form College. Connell is an integral member of the Bright Futures Educational Trust (BFET), a partnership of North West schools committed to raising aspirations and driving up standards through a diverse education. As a BFET member, our college aims to create an environment where students can flourish as they progress through education into adulthood.

Through our outstanding facilities and dedicated teaching staff, Connell aims to provide each student with the tools to pursue their passions beyond education and into employment. To this end, the College is driven by the shared values of hard work, integrity and passion.

We recognise and assess every student’s academic potential on an individual basis, ensuring that we develop not only their academic skills but also their confidence and self-belief. As a result of this dynamic, aspirational and supportive approach, our students become ambassadors for their local and wider communities, developing all the while in an ecosystem that nurtures and inspires excellence.
