Newham Sixth Form College

Prince Regent Lane London E13 8SG

“NewVIc is a thriving sixth form college located in the heart of east London. The college was established in 1992 to increase opportunities for school leavers in Newham and neighbouring boroughs who choose to stay in education. We specialise in working with young people aged 16-19 who have recently progressed from year 11 at school. The college has grown and developed over the past 17 years and is now London’s largest sixth form college with 2,500 students on a range of courses including A-levels, diplomas, specialist pathways, vocational programmes at advanced, intermediate and foundation level as well as a selection of school-link and ESOL programmes. Our college community includes over 300 dedicated staff who are focused on ensuring that all our students have every opportunity to learn, enjoy and achieve at college and ultimately progress successfully to higher education, employment or training. “
