Student Success Stories

Professor Giles Hammond of the University of Glasgow, was a student at Cadbury College from 1990-1992 and studied A-Levels in physics, chemistry and mathematics. He is a leading figure in his field of gravitational research, having developed techniques and sensors for advanced gravitational wave detectors.

He says: “I’m from Birmingham and my parents still live there, so Cadbury was the local college for me. It had a good reputation for science and maths and was a couple of bus rides away from my home in Bournville

Frequently Asked Questions

My school’s sixth form is smaller – does that mean it’s better?

Ofsted have recently criticised small school sixth forms in a recent report published in TES Magazine, for offering a narrow choice of subjects which often "guide young people on the wrong courses because of the limited range available" meaning that students attending smaller sixth forms are more likely to "achieve considerably poorer results than those in larger sixth forms." Cadbury College is proud to offer a wide range of courses including A-Levels and BTEC Level 3s.
