showcased in The Week Independent Schools Guide

Friday September 17, 2021

Concord has been commended as ‘Great for Sixth Form’ in The Week Independent Schools Guide – a magazine and schools guide dedicated to celebrating “the best of the best.” The Week is a family of publications which began with a print magazine more than 20 years ago, and education has become a key aspect thanks to the annual schools guide. In the Autumn-Winter 2021 edition, education experts Emma Lee-Potter and Janita Clamp presented the best independent schools in the UK, after consulting with a wide range of heads, teachers, and parents. The duo said: “We are proudly presenting our highly acclaimed guide to the UK’s leading independent senior schools.” The guide also aims to help parents find the best schools (2021) for their children. Concord was delighted to be featured as one of three contenders ranked as ‘Great for Sixth Form’ – which coincides with record-breaking A level results at the college for 2021.

It's a testament to the hard work of students and dedicated staff that the Sixth Form continues to flourish, even during such a difficult 18 months. “Our online provision has been second to none, something which was recognised by the recent award of Microsoft Showcase School status to the college.” He added: “We have also been able to maintain our outstanding entry rates to top universities, both in the UK and around the world.”
