Social Life at Culford Sixth Form

Culford Sixth formers enjoy a high degree of independence and freedom. From the moment you join us and embark on your Freshers’ Week Adventure, it is obvious that this is not like ordinary school.  Sixth Form boarders have their own room and all Culford Sixth Formers are free to enjoy two Sixth Form-only lounges which are conveniently located in the Sports & Tennis Centre and at Ashby Dining Hall. These lounges have comfortable sofas and flat screen televisions, while the Sixth Form Centre also offers a coffee-shop style lunch and snack bar. 

Cultural activities abound with drama productions in Centenary Hall, our 400 seat auditorium, and in our professionally equipped Studio Theatre.  Lovers of music can also take advantage of Culford’s refurbished Music School and rehearsal studio where the School’s many bands come together and practice.

"I have adored attending Culford I believe that it has been the making of me as a person and all of the staff have gone out of their way to support me and help me in my times of need I have learnt life skills and met people who will shape my life forever."
