The Littlehampton College is a sixth-form college that is joint with the Littlehampton Community School.

It is based in a separate college building which is located within the school grounds, to the west of the main buildings. The college offers students a range of qualifications, including GCSE's and BTEC awards, however by far the most popular is the AS and A2 'A' Level. Most students attend the college for two years, however a limited number of students opt to stay on for a further year in order to attain additional qualifications.

Throughout the academic year, college students become involved in several lower-school events, particularly in creative events, for example 'The LCS Factor' and other drama department productions.

Management

The College is currently managed by John Fuller, Head of College. In addition, the day to day problems and issues are dealt with by College Co-Ordinator, Angie Gresty. The college was graded at a higher level than the actual school in the last OFSTED report, receiving a 'good' rating in contrast to the school's 'satisfactory'.

tudent Roles

'The College Committee'

The college also democratically elects a College Committee at the start of every academic year. This committee is responsible for making student's feelings heard, improving the general college environment and organising the various social events. Currently, there are seven members from each year group on the committee, bringing the total to fourteen.

ocial Events

One of the main differences between this and other colleges in the area is the high level of integration that occurs amongst students of various backgrounds. The key to this integration is often argued to be the social events that occur throughout the academic year.

The many social events held throughout the year include:

*a Christmas Meal - usually held two weeks before the Christmas Break
*the Summer Ball - held in July at Fontwell Park Racecourse near Arundel, West Sussex
*Quiz Nights - held usually during the Autumn Term.
*Pizza and Bowling Night - held February, just after half term.

Business and Enterprise Status

As the college is joint with the school, the Business and Enterprise specialism is also incorporated into days during the school year. Qualifications the college offers are also incorporated into the specialist status.

Anita Roddick Conference's

In line with the Business and Enterprise specialism of the main school, the college runs three Roddick Conference's through the year, again named after Dame Anita Roddick. The first of these conferences is entitled 'Suited and Booted'. This academic years event was held in December 2007, especially for boys, (female students had a conference last year instead) with a local tree surgeon as the keynote speaker. The day aimed to help and teach the male members of the college about skills needed in business.

The second conference, entitled 'One World' involved students attending three workshops of there choices, all of which had a relation to current issues, for example the keynote speaker Alan Chambers MBE an Arctic explorer. Another prominent workshop was West Sussex Fire and Rescue which delivered a hard hitting presentation on the dangers of drink driving. The day was very successful building on from elements of the previous One World Day's.

The final conference of the year takes the form of the college's Business and Enterprise Week project where students make a variety of films, before having a showcase, this conference is entitled 'Room 5 Film Festival'.

tudents' action in the Local Community and Charities

The college is very proud that it can say that students make a great contribution to their local community.

OUTSET

Many students take on 'OUTSET', a volunteering organisation part of 'V', the government run scheme. They offer their time to many local projects and organisations and work towards awards such as nationally recognised certificates.

Events during the school year

Many charity events are run by the college committee throughout the year in order to raise money for various causes. These range from Children in Need to the school's Sri Lanka Tsunami appeal, where students are hoping to go out and teach children as well as building facilities and services for them.
