It starts from the moment we meet you. At an informal interview, you’ll tell us about your talents and interests, and we’ll discuss your personal goals. We’ll then help you find the right programme, choosing from a wide range of GCSE, A-Level, and BTEC options.

Whichever route you take, you’ll learn from subject experts in dedicated tutorial-style classes with an average teacher-student ratio of 1 to 4. You’ll also benefit from the academic and pastoral guidance of your own Senior Tutor.
