Longley Park Sixth Form College (LPSFC) is a 16-18 academy and was previously a further education college in the Longley area of Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England. It is not to be confused with the multi-campus Sheffield College. LPSFC was established in 2004 with circa 1,200 students enrolled. It is part of the Brigantia Learning Trust, an academies parternship with feeder school Hinde House 3-16 School.
It opened to the public and to students in September 2004 at a cost of £8.5 million. The college has been visited by both the former Prime Minister Tony Blair and the former Home Secretary David Blunkett MP (who both opened it). It is just north of the Northern General Hospital on Barnsley Road (A6135), although the entrance is on Horninglow Road. It was designed by Ellis Williams of Preston Brook and built by Kier Northern.
The college has many different resources. These range from Interactive whiteboards in each class room, to the Learning Resource Centre (LRC). The college also has a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) which is powered by the Open Source Course Management System (CMS), Moodle.
