Welcome to United College Sixth Form (UCSF)


We provide an innovative range of subjects to study in a friendly and supportive environment.

Choosing the right Sixth Form sets you up for the future, and we have designed our courses to lead you into the next stage of your life as a confident, competent individual. UCSF is based at Beech Avenue, North Swindon, set within a dedicated Sixth Form suite and part of the United Learning Cluster, at Swindon Academy.

We provide an extensive offering of A Level and Vocational Qualifications. Browse UCSF Subjects to check out exactly what you will learn, the specific qualification you will achieve and which career or university course it could lead to. Each subject has its own, clear summary.

Not only this, you can choose a course you enjoy for its own sake, or you may select one of our unique Career Pathways which combine courses designed to work together, steering you into your intended profession or specialty area. No need to stress about what goes with what, or the requirements for a particular university course; we have done this thinking for you. Currently of our Pathways are Medicine, Science, Education, Engineering and Architecture, Cyber Technologies, Business & Finance and Allied Healthcare, but we are working on providing more, so watch this space!  Each career pathway has its own supra-curricular pathway which provides multiple additional options for students to take part in to extend their experiences to support their university applications.

UCSF is the only Sixth Form with a STEM Grammar Stream in Swindon. 

The STEM Grammar Stream is delivered in partnership with Marlborough College. If your aim is to follow STEM subjects into a top university, we can support you with specialised tutoring, guidance on interviews and personal statements, appropriate work experience opportunities and much more. 

At United College Sixth Form we welcome students from all secondary schools across Swindon.  We are friendly and welcoming and go out of our way to create a family feeling that is warm, friendly, energetic and focused on your learning.  Check out the video below to get a sense of our welcoming environment. 

We understand that it can be daunting moving from GCSE into A Levels, so we offer an exceptional level of support to keep you on track: both in terms of academic direction or study skills support, but we also prioritise our students’ wellbeing.
