About Us

Jake Robson BWI have the privilege of leading the talented teaching staff and managers that our students encounter in their lessons each day. If you choose to study here you will have made an excellent decision, our superb teachers are one of the reasons that we have been an outstanding college for many years. We are lucky to have their fantastic expertise and I am sure that you will enjoy learning with them.

In the first instance our amazing building and our fantastic facilities will certainly impress you; but you will quickly discover that more importantly we are a very friendly community and that we value each individual. The college has a happy and purposeful atmosphere, and there is a real sense of partnership between students and staff.

Please contribute to college life and enjoy its many opportunities. We will enrich your subjects with trips, visits, fieldwork, “live projects” and guest speakers. There will be opportunities for you to participate in a variety of activities outside of your timetabled lessons too. We underpin everything we do with our three pillars; Qualifications, Character Strengths and Connections and we believe that it is through this combination of attributes that you will succeed and progress to an exciting future career with prospects.

The next two or three years at college is a precious time for you all. I can vividly remember my time at sixth form and it was transformative. Please make the best use of your time here, if you show commitment to your learning we can help everything else to fall into place.

Best wishes
Jake Robson, Head of Centre
