New sixth form centre to open
A PRIVATE school in Colchester will open a £10,000 a year sixth form centre next year.
Colchester High School, in Wellesley Road, will become the first fee-paying school in the borough to offer A-level education next September.
The school is to invest a “significant” sum into converting a study centre it owns in nearby Oxford Road into the new facility.
A common room, new science labs and other rooms will be created.
Existing pupils who make the grade at the independent school will be given the first refusal on the small number of places on offer.
External candidates can apply from December 1 this year.
Fees will be in line wit those for the school’s Year 10 and 11 pupils – £10,395 a year.
