Culford Sixth Form

Attending Culford Sixth Form doesn’t just give you the chance to achieve vital academic grades; it also gives you the chance to develop the personal qualities that are arguably even more important in the long term. Sixth formers enjoy a high degree of independence and freedom. From the moment pupils join us and embark on their Freshers’ Week Adventure, it is obvious that this is not an ordinary school.

Marcus Rackowe BA
Head of Sixth Form

" the end of Sixth Form pupils are ready for the opportunities ahead; ready for the world."

Freshers' Week 

"...The perfect start to Culford Sixth Form"
Life in Culford Sixth Form

"...Culford Sixth Form has the perfect balance of feeling like a sixth form college while still being at Culford "

Culford Sport

The sporting provision at Culford is exceptional.

There is a superb Sports and Tennis Centre with a 25m heated swimming pool, large sports centre, strength and conditioning suite, indoor golf studio and four championship-standard indoor tennis courts.

All major sports are played alongside our Academy Sports - Tennis, Swimming and Golf. We also offer additional sporting activities such as horse riding or martial arts.


Why Culford?

Here is a small selection of parent and pupil testimonials about the Culford difference.

"A thriving happy school with excellent foundations
and confident leadership."
The Good Schools Guide

Last year, the glamorous fashion and lifestyle magazine, Tatler, included Culford as one of its six most architecturally beautiful schools. As we are unable to welcome you to our Summer Open Morning, we wanted to give you a preview of Culford's beautiful setting. With the help of our Head of Golf, Lawrence Dodd, and his trusty golf buggy we were able to make this short video. 

Next Steps...

We hope this virtual open morning has provided you with an insight into life at Culford and the wonderful education we are proud to offer. We would be delighted to offer prospective families the opportunity of an individual online visit or an on-site tour of Culford.

I have been able to pursue my passion, win a place at the National Youth Film Academy and secure a job at a leading marketing agency. This would not have been possible without Culford's support.

Culford has influenced me in such a positive way, especially Mr Dodd. He taught me so much about the game of golf and passed on valuable knowledge I will take with me as I head to America.
