We have an enviable reputation in the local area built upon a long history of excellence. We have built up strong links with local organisations and employers to become a leading provider of Apprenticeships in Taunton and Somerset.
Huish is also one of the best Sixth Form Colleges in the country for exam results and consistently ranked highly when compared to all other educational institutions for it’s students’ added value. The most credible measure of value added performance in further education is the Alps system. Alps compares the performance of Huish students against every other student studying these qualifications in all state or independent organisations across the country.
We are excellent at producing students who do better than expected. This means that, whatever your level of achievement at GCSE or background, if you really want to succeed, then we provide a powerful combination of excellent courses, personal support and enrichment that will ensure you get your choice of University or employment.
The Huish Class of 2020 faced unprecedented times with the whole examination series being cancelled and students instead being awarded Centre Assessed Grades by their centre, however despite this Huish consistently achieves results above the national averages at A Level and equivalent qualifications. In 2019 at A Level they achieved an A* to B pass rate of 53%, and an A* to C pass rate of 78%. The overall A Level pass rate was an outstanding 99%. Of the students that took Vocational Extended Diplomas, 53% of grades achieved were the very highest Distinction or Distinction*.
College Principal, Emma Fielding said: “The Class of 2020 have been fantastic and it has been such a privilege and pleasure to have them with us at Huish. They have shown tremendous resilience over recent months, we are hugely proud of their achievements and will continue to support them in every way we can. As one of the country’s highest performing Sixth Form Colleges, and one of the best in the South West, our consistent results show that we are the best place to study locally in the face of rigorous A Level examinations. Technical qualifications are continuing to have a greater prominence in the future educational landscape, so I am particularly pleased to see equally excellent results in these subjects too. Of course, our students’ achievements begin with the efforts of our partner schools and are consolidated by the commitment, work and expertise of our College staff.”
