TEACHERS AT THE Blackpool Sixth Form College are happy to go the extra mile for their students. In fact, last year one teacher went an extra 26.2 miles, after deciding to support students tackling the London marathon by running it himself. As well as raising money for charity, this demonstrates staff's commitment to the 1,900 students. The workforce strongly cares about providing a great service, giving a 97% positive score which ranks the college top of the small organisations on our list.
