Welcome to Guthlaxton College
I am delighted to welcome you to Guthlaxton College and share with you our vision “Learning to Succeed”.
Our values are based upon our motto. Our single drive is to secure successful outcomes for our students, their families, the community and our staff. We believe that working together we can ensure the very best learning for all, meeting the needs of each and every student.
Focus on... ICT
Guthlaxton has had a long tradition of producing ICT experts. Computers are everywhere these days and whether you enter employment or go on to study at a college or university, you are undoubtedly going to be using ICT. The ICT faculty offers a range of courses to suit all our learners. Our outstanding results in the DiDA suite of qualifications, places Guthlaxton in the top 20% of the best schools in the country. Some of our A’level Computing and ICT students have gone on to become top achievers at their universities. Our level 3 BTEC course (new in 2011) is set to continue this trend. Guthlaxton College has a state of the art computer network and every ICT student is offered the use of PC throughout their course. The nature of the work is diverse, exciting and challenging.
