A popular choice for East Yorkshire students
Wilberforce Sixth Form College is a specialist college that is the first choice for more students than ever before in the East Yorkshire region. The strength of our popular college, which sees many courses oversubscribed, comes from the Wilberforce focus on 16-19-year-olds exclusively. Our exceptional staff utilise our specially designed environments and targeted courses and resources to help students reach their full potential.
We have university-standard science labs complemented by state-of-the-art equipment, industry-standard engineering facilities, and top-of-the-range hair and beauty salons. Our Upskilling Programme (USP) provides students with essential skills and various exciting and enriching activities – from our Debating Society to our Young Enterprise project and our Cinema Club; we offer over 45 activities.

Experts in mathematics and technology excellence
At Wilberforce, we understand the benefits of equipping our students with technological proficiency. We’re proud to be the first sixth form college awarded Microsoft Showcase College status following our digital transformation. And we’re one of only 18 UK schools and colleges to be named an ‘EdTech Demonstrator’ by the Department for Education (DfE). We’ve also partnered with the University of Hull to install two new I.T. suites.
In addition to our investment in technology, Wilberforce is a UK Maths Centre of Excellence – one of only 21 in the UK.
