See what our Sixth Form students have to say about King's!

Sixth Form years can be the most exciting period in a person’s education. Students study subjects of their choice, and they study these subjects to a greater depth. They can follow their own lines of thought while working closely with teachers and peers. There is no other time when there is so much potential for being influenced by new ideas. Often students arrive with one career in mind and leave with a completely different plan, having been inspired by an experience or a person at school.

King’s College Taunton is an excellent place to spend the Sixth Form years. It has inspirational teachers, who are experts in their field, love their subject and are committed to their students. Classes are small and there are voluntary drop-in clinics for students who want some individual attention. Click here to read more. But don't just take this from us, listen to what our Sixth Form students have to say.
