Academic Features

UCAS help & Careers Advice

We are proud of the achievements of our students who we have helped achieve their goals through our dedicated teaching and excellent UCAS help

Small Class Sizes

We maintain small class sizes to ensure that each student receives the upmost individual attention from our teachers. Our teaching staff is often available, outside of class, to help should students who require one to one support.

Supervised Study

All students are encouraged to be self-disciplined and to study independently. At A-Level we aim to offer a bridge between the world of school and the much more self-disciplined environment of university. Homework therefore, is set and marked on a regular basis. All students are issued with homework diaries, enabling staff and parents to monitor levels of work set and completed.

Exam Skills & Techniques

Mock examinations, tests and timed essays are given regularly. This gives students the opportunity for revision and practice in working under examination conditions.


On enrolment each student is given a Code of Conduct which sets out procedures regarding discipline. As our students are encouraged to behave as adults rather than school children, we do not have a great number of rules and regulations, but those that we do have are important for the smooth running of the college. We do not tolerate any form of inappropriate behavior at the college. Any student found to be in breach of the ‘code of conduct’ will face disciplinary action which could result in expulsion.

Parent-Tutor Relationship

We maintain a close working relationship with parents by contacting them whenever necessary. Parents are encouraged to meet the Principal and Vice –Principal by appointment to discuss matters of concern. Parent consultation evenings are held twice a year after which parents will receive a full report on a students’ progress in all subjects.
