Small class sizes

Our classes are the size of exclusive university seminars. We have teachers who are expert in their subjects and support systems that develop academic and personal skills, which combine to deliver an educational experience unparalleled in the independent sixth form education sphere. Such small class sizes ensure no student gets overlooked and students don’t feel shy about speaking up to ask for help.

Experienced teachers

We have teachers with an average of 15+ years of teaching experience. Our teachers are highly qualified specialists in their subjects and believe in active, student-centred teaching. “Learn how to think, not what to think,” is a central teaching philosophy with our staff favouring guided discovery. Many within our teaching team also have experience as awarding body examiners, so when it comes to exam technique, they really know what is required. In class, students are helped to achieve a depth of understanding, debating issues and mastering the concepts, techniques and skills required to learn effectively, solve problems and communicate at an advanced level.
