PRESS RELEASE

Date 9th June 2016

Palma College for Sixth Form Studies, the only dedicated A Level College on Mallorca, is delighted to announce the expansion into additional premises in Carrer de L’Estudi General to complement the original college facilities in Carrer Can Veri.

Within a few minutes walking distance, and set adjacent to Palma Cathedral, the new teaching spaces will accommodate the growing number of students who take the A Level route from a choice of fourteen subjects. With a number of A Level courses already full for September 2016 this expansion will allow the College to continue to grow and provide outstanding education and support for the 16 – 18 year old students.

The expansion of the Art Department into additional space in Can Veri will allow the increase in numbers for this popular A Level.   Additionally a Summer Art school is running in July for GCSE or equivalent students who wish to work on their skills before A Level.

The success of the College can be seen in the pathways the former students follow; last year’s leavers all accepted places at their first choice of university throughout Europe, or went straight into paid GAP year employment.  This year’s leavers are all on track to follow their chosen route after spending some considerable time with the staff from the College looking at the best options.

The unique Enrichment Programme which underpins skills for life is an integral part of the student experience and we value the participation of many members of the community from Mallorca who give time to work or talk with the young people.  Assisting students to bridge the gap between school and university or work is part of the mission of the College and we are delighted to have secured beautiful additional space in which to carry out many of our lectures and activities.
