CARMEL VI FORM
We are a community built on ‘Academic Strength and Spiritual Depth’
Based in Darlington, we are a community of individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds who come together to work, play, reflect, compete, discover, analyse and ultimately succeed.
We focus on a core of just over 300 students, which we believe is the right size to offer dedicated facilities, outstanding teaching and really focus on helping our students to make the right choices to succeed at university, in life and employment. Our College has a history of successful students. Every year we achieve excellent results and our students go on to study at many of the UK’s leading universities.
We believe in team work here at Carmel VI Form and therefore have a wide management team to ensure that the needs of every student is met.
