The Advance Colleges Trust (ACT) Group is made up of three award-winning colleges, Franklin Sixth Form College in Grimsby, John Leggott College in Scunthorpe and Wilberforce Sixth Form College in Hull.
All three colleges are well established in their own region. However, the true strength of the group lies in its collaborative power, bringing together the best in education to support students in their learning journeys.
Franklin, JLC and Wilberforce enhance the student experience through up-to-the-minute innovative techniques and technologies. Staff and governors are united in maximising expertise and resources to further the life chances of young people and adults in the local community.
Celebrating diversity, growing together
Every student that walks through our college doors is unique – and, therefore, we believe that a tailored approach to learning is the best way forward. Across the three colleges in the ACT group, we offer foundation degrees, A-Levels, BTEC and CTEC vocational courses and City and Guilds courses. The combinations are limitless and our focus is on finding the right fit for the right individual.
Alongside our core educational programmes, our students have access to exciting opportunities for enrichment and work experience that complement their studies. For example, pre-med, police cadets and talented athlete support schemes are just some of the activities on offer.
The entire ACT family is committed to equipping students with the tools to grow professionally, personally and academically with a focus on inclusivity. The three colleges have a vibrant mix of students from local, regional and international schools and this diverse mix creates an exciting atmosphere in which to grow together.
