Cherwell College Oxford:
We are a specialist GCSE and Sixth Form college based in the very heart of Oxford.
Without doubt, Cherwell's strength lies in the system of tuition and the academic staff who combine academic flair with enthusiasm and creativity. Cherwell's tutors include lifelong teachers, engineers, scientists and artists, united by their passion for their field and desire to impart this passion to their students.
The personalised nature of the tuition system at Cherwell is underlined by the fact that Cherwell's students are actually outnumbered by the tutors. This is certainly rare and possibly unique among higher-education establishments, and provides an insight into the degree of specialism and depth of knowledge available to Cherwell's students.
We are all about the individual and recognise that learning styles differ from student to student. Our unique one-to-one tutorial classes are attended daily and supported by small group seminars, lectures and mock examinations.
The tutorial system at Cherwell College, which mirrors that of leading universities, encourages students to be independent thinkers. Alongside helping our students achieve the best grades possible, this system also allows them to study at their own pace and in the style that suits them best.
Situated in the heart of Oxford, we are proud to be the only boarding tutorial College in Oxford with our own campus of en-suite apartments!
Our boarding students are accommodated at Cherwell House – our purpose-built student residential accommodation located within the short walking distance from the main study centres.

The College campus comprises of three centres; all are a short walking distance from each other and in the heart of Oxford.
The main College building is St. Georges Mansions - a magnificent five storey Edwardian building offering breath-taking views of the Dreaming Spires and comprising a suite of tutorial and lecture rooms, a supervised study area, a library, a common room with vending machines for students’ use and a computer room.
The College Science Faculty is located at Frewin Court (adjacent to the Oxford Union) and provides laboratory facilities for students studying science subjects.
The College Art Studio is located at Cantay House on Park End Street, which benefits from ample natural light and incorporates the latest technologies to support Art & Design students through all practical aspects of their course, from textiles and sculpture to photography and graphics.
We care passionately about student success and welfare. Outside the classroom our students keep busy with a host of interesting activities, helped in part by our central Oxford location which means students are able to easily access the outstanding academic events taking place throughout this ancient city.
Oxford Union Debating
Each month our students get a privileged insight into Oxford University debating. The evening starts with a workshop hosted by students from the university followed by a debate.
On some evenings, students attend professorial talks arranged internally or externally. In this, Cherwell College takes full advantage of its unique connection to the Oxford Union, the prestigious debating society associated with the University of Oxford; we attend debates at the Union, as well as host Debating Workshops run by our partners at the Oxford Union.
Recently our students enjoyed meeting Professor AC Grayling who gave a unique talk about the benefits and problems of modern democracy.
Recent trips have included visits to Blenheim Palace, the Oxford Playhouse theatre, Waddesdon Manor and Stonehenge to name just a few. We keep our students busy!
