Bolton Sixth Form College is a further education college for students aged 16 and higher and is located on two sites in the Metropolitan Borough of Bolton, Greater Manchester, England.


Bolton Sixth Form College is the largest further education college in the Metropolitan Borough of Bolton. The college has around 1700 full-time students. In 2007 the college won the AOC Beacon Award for the Promotion of Racial Equality. Since 2008, this award has been disputed. [1]


The college has two campuses: the Farnworth Campus is situated on Queen Street in Farnworth and the larger Town Centre Campus is on Deane Road in Bolton.[2] The Farnworth campus opened in July 2008 and replaced the former South campus on Lever Edge Lane in Daubhill. The Town Centre campus opened in September 2010 and replaced the former North campus which was situated on Smithills Dean Road. These previous campuses had once been separate Bolton North and Bolton South Colleges which merged in the late 1990s to form a single Sixth Form College. However the college has announced that its Farnworth Campus will close in September 2014.[3]
