    Aspire, Achieve and Succeed at Queen Elizabeth Sixth Form College, Darlington, County Durham

    Queen Elizabeth Sixth Form College is located in Darlington, North East England. Our success and popularity as a college are built upon our commitment to providing our students with the best possible learning environment and highest possible standards of support and guidance.  We are proud of the excellent relationships that exist between staff and students and our purposeful, lively and friendly atmosphere.

    Since opening, the College has been a popular choice for students and has continued to expand. There are approximately 2000 students on roll with a significant proportion travelling to Darlington from County Durham, Teesside and North Yorkshire.  We also enrol a significant number from independent schools. The majority of our students have a full A Level Study Programme and the academic work of the College is of a high standard with an excellent record of examination success across the curriculum.   In 2019 our A Level pass rate was an outstanding 99.5% with a high grade rate of over 57%.

    Over recent years, we have invested more than £7 million in our buildings and facilities at Queen Elizabeth Sixth Form College. Developments include an expanded and refurbished library, open access learning areas, Apple equipped Media and Art Graphics suites, state of the art science facilities, a fully equipped performance studio and purpose built progress tutor group spaces.   There was also an extension completed to the student common room which included a Costa Coffee outlet. We’ve also done a lot of work to preserve and enhance our iconic Victorian frontage.

    We hope you will come along to one of our open evenings and see for yourself the many exciting opportunities that are available at Queen Elizabeth Sixth Form College, Darlington for students from across County Durham, Teesside and North Yorkshire.
