As a partner of London Met, students at Leyton Sixth Form College will receive a package of expert advice and guidance, as well as practical support designed to help them consider their future and develop a plan to help them achieve their academic and career ambitions

Professor Lynn Dobbs, Vice-Chancellor of London Metropolitan University, said: “Too many bright, talented and ambitious young people fail to progress to higher education which is not only a huge loss for them and their families but also for their communities, London and the country as a whole.

“Leyton Sixth Form College share our commitment to opening up access to education and have an inclusive and diverse student population that mirrors our own. We hope partnership agreements like this will empower many more students to continue to transform their lives through education.”
