Studying at High Pavement Sixth Form Centre

Sixth Form High Pavement01

A Levels are a great way to prepare for university-level study and we are here to guide you along the way. We will help you towards achieving the grades you need and choosing the university or institution that’s right for you.

Our Sixth Form Centre is based at our High Pavement campus on Chaucer Street in Nottingham City Centre. It is fully equipped with everything you need to succeed in your studies – a dedicated team of lecturers, well equipped classrooms, great facilities and strong links with our neighbour, Nottingham Trent University.

High Pavement is a mature and inspiring environment, where you’ll meet loads of fellow students who’ve also chosen A Levels. So, you’ll find you have lots of support and the opportunity to make new friends. If you’d like to study in the city, in a supportive environment with excellent links to universities locally and nationally, High Pavement is the place for you.

You’ll be able to work and complete research in our fantastic Library. You’ll also meet with your tutor regularly to see how you’re progressing and to help keep your studies well on track.
