A record number of high-flying students have been welcomed into a Barrow sixth form.

The highest ever number of students have been accepted into Barrow Sixth Form College this year as part of its ground-breaking Honours programme.

The 40 students have joined the programme at the Rating Lane campus after achieving top grades in their GCSEs at school.

They will have the chance to specialise in their favourite A-level subject with additional mentoring from a host of expert tutors.
