Part of Salford City College Group

At Eccles Sixth Form College we are incredibly proud of our students, our staff and everything we achieve together.

Our number one priority is ensuring our students reach their full potential and that our outstanding achievement rates reflect our vision to ensure that they are all successful.

We are committed to providing a well-balanced and stimulating curriculum for all students, delivered by some of the very best teachers in the country. All of our teaching staff are experts in their vocational subject areas and most have worked in industry.

Our committed and passionate staff help ensure our students progress successfully beyond sixth form college, by supporting, challenging and guiding them every step of the way.

Our state-of-the-art facilities are based within a spacious, green environment set in a leafy residential area.

They include a Football Association approved 4G AstroTurf pitch, an industry standard gym and a sports performance laboratory. We have one of the country’s most outstanding animal management centres extending to over four acres of land including over 250 different species. Inside we have nocturnal, small mammal and aquarium rooms sitting alongside well-equipped laboratories and veterinary nursing suites. Those studying equine studies will spend some of their time taught by British Horse Society instructors at the well renowned Ryders Farm Equestrian Centre, which has an indoor riding arena, cross country course and over 50 horses.
