For our term-time courses, there is a guarantee of fewer than 10 students in each class. The small class sizes ensure that each student receives the individual attention he or she needs. The majority of our subject tutors are qualified to Masters or Doctorate level and many are examiners for the A level and GCSE subjects that they teach.
In class, great emphasis is placed on the demands of the specification and on exam technique. We measure performance in this important area by frequent testing via timed assignments and mock exams. A student’s academic progress is closely monitored by a Personal Tutor who provides support and advice throughout the year via by means of individual tutorial meetings, regular written reports to parents and meetings with parents and/or subject tutors whenever necessary.
The college also provides a programme of support for students with learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, working-memory problems and processing speed problems. Each student, should they wish, can receive weekly input and assistance from our Head of Learning Support.
