Seaton Burn College

Welcome to Seaton Burn Sixth Form

Seaton Burn College works collaboratively with two local high schools, George Stephenson High School and Longbenton Community College, to form the North West Cluster Sixth Form in North Tyneside.  All three schools maintain their distinct personality but benefit greatly from the close partnership we have developed over many years.

Because our three schools work so closely together, and have done so for so long, we have a proven track record of success. Our results are consistently high and our students progress very successfully to universities both locally and far afield, including Oxbridge and Russell Group universities, as well as following other chosen pathways into training and work.

We offer a very wide range of subjects in the Sixth Form, including more than 30 A Level courses and a wide range of vocational programmes.  

For courses which involve students travelling between any of our centres, we provide free, exclusive transport in our dedicated minibuses.  As well as studying for formal qualifications, our students benefit from a range of exciting enrichment activities and opportunities, which enhance both enjoyment and experience, and increase the chance of success in the highly competitive environment beyond the Sixth Form and into the future.

Such opportunities include participation in dramatic and musical productions; being part of superb field trips, both rural and urban and in the UK and abroad; and numerous opportunities for community engagement and volunteering. These include our strong partnership through our long standing link with schools in Kenya. Many students have had truly life changing experiences as part of this fantastic project!

We have an excellent relationship with our local universities who attend our advice and guidance sessions and provide hands-on experiences and bespoke opportunities to help our students progress successfully to university, should this be their chosen option. We also arrange university visits further afield such as Cambridge, Leeds, Edinburgh and York. Our careers advice and guidance for other pathways into employment are run in parallel with university preparation for those students who wish to enter the workplace more immediately.

All three of our schools are members of North Tyneside Learning Trust, which is enhancing our links with local and global employers and providing significant advantage to our students in relation to the support which they are able to receive in their preparations for the future. For example, our close working relationship with Procter & Gamble has seen students from our schools benefiting from the highly sought after Procter & Gamble Internships.

Our three Sixth Forms working together demonstrate in action the wonderful benefits of partnerships in providing both a rich curriculum and a very personalised and tailored individual guidance structure. Please contact us if you are interested in joining us and we will take the time and care to welcome you!
