A Level

If you're thinking about studying A Levels, there's no better place than right here at East Durham Sixth Form - ED6!

Welcome to ED6! Our specialist sixth form provision at our Peterlee campus is one of the best places to study A Levels in the North East.

Of course we're biased and would say we're the best, but our numbers prove it too! ED6 has a proven track record of incredible results, and here's the most important one you need to know about:

For the past six years, ED6 students studying 3 A levels or more have achieved 100% pass rate on their exams.

That's right - for over half a decade, not one student studying at ED6 has failed their exams.

On top of that, students go on to massive success after leaving us, moving on to study a wide range of degree programmes at universities all over the country (and even outside the country too!).

With plenty of A Level options available, fantastic teaching from lecturers passionate about their subject, small-size classes to ensure you get the best experience and loads of other benefits like a FREE bus pass to and from your college, your own common room, Starbucks on-site and so much more, there's loads of reasons to consider ED6 for A Levels.

ED6 is based at East Durham College's Peterlee campus. We offer an excellent range of facilities for students and excellent tuition thanks to our highly qualified teaching staff.

Our sixth form was also ranked as the best in the country (2018/19) for value-added scores. This means that students of ED6 make more progression than what is of expected of them than anywhere else in the country - this means that ED6 is truly the best place in the country for boosting academic results.
