East Norfolk Sixth Form College (commonly abbreviated to EN, ENSFC or ENORF) is a sixth form college in Gorleston, Norfolk.

Opened in 1982 it uses the building of the former Alderman Leach Secondary Modern school. The college offers 80 different courses including A levels and a number of other pathways in further education.[1] It is one of two colleges in the Great Yarmouth area, the second being Great Yarmouth College. The sixth form covers a wide area of East Anglia and many students use buses to get to the college from around Norfolk and north Suffolk.

The college has about 1,750 students [2] most of whom are aged 16–18. In 2012 the college came within the Top 20 Sixth Form Institutions in the UK based on The Guardian's league tables. EN has consistently been in the Top 20 for the last twelve years. [3]

In 2012 the college expanded its facilities with two state of the art classroom blocks and a new cafeteria.

Student Association[edit]

The purpose of the Student Association is to create a platform for students to voice suggestions on how to improve the college learning and social environment. The Student Association also organises activities for students and supports the local community through fund-raising and events promotion. Officers are elected directly by the student body.
