Ashbourne Independent Sixth Form College, London:
Wonderfully located near Kensington Palace, Ashbourne College in Kensington, West London, England, is an Independent Sixth Form College offering GCSE and A level pre-university education to international and UK students. Following the university ethos, the college combines informality and an adult approach to education, at both A level and GCSE, with a disciplined system in which each student's work is carefully monitored. The college is fully co-educational and considers its primary strength to be its small size, coupled with its friendly and caring approach. The School is diverse, with approximately 50% of students coming from overseas.
As a private college, Ashbourne is selective. All prospective students are either interviewed by the Principal or Director of Studies. The admissions process is friendly, informal, and our focus is on providing each applicant with the best available advice on all their options at A level and GCSE, without obligation. We are selective to the extent that we expect students to have above average grades and further academic ambitions and interests beyond the school curriculum.
Boarding with a family will appeal to those who wish to experience English family life. Many students bond quickly with their host families, often forming friendships that will continue into adult life. All accommodation is fully inspected before it is offered to students and is within walking distance or an easy journey by bus or train from Ashbourne.
As a private college we are conscious of our responsibility for maintaining a very high standard of facilities and equipment. Ashbourne's main building at Old Court Place is fully equipped for A level study. In addition to teaching rooms, there is a library with computer and Internet access and a full range of learning resources.
