A Level Intensive Courses

Ashbourne offers outstanding opportunities for ambitious and hardworking students who will benefit from the individual attention, flexibility, choice and support to reach the highest grades.


Excellent results

Ashbourne has been delivering highly successful A level courses for more than 35 years. Our students consistently achieve excellent results and almost 60% of our graduates go on to study at Russell Group universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.

Choice and flexibility

Ashbourne is committed to offering as much choice and flexibility as possible to suit each student’s educational needs. Students can choose from an wide range of A level subject choices, without restriction, and length of course. This even allows students to drop subjects studied previously to start afresh with new ones.

The traditional A level course runs over two years. Ashbourne also offers one-year, 18-month, retake and one-week Easter Revision courses, as well as transfers from AS to A level.

Individual attention and exam focus

Ashbourne’s small class sizes of less than 10 make it easy for students to engage effectively and for teachers to provide plenty of one-to-one attention and feedback with assigned work. Students receive significantly more teaching hours than is typical so they can complete the syllabus in a relaxed and confident manner with plenty of time for revision at the end of the course. They also sit mock exams, based on previous exam papers, each half term followed by constructive feedback. Ashbourne places great emphasis on teaching exam technique which we believe is critical to achieving the best A level results.

University preparation

We believe building students’ confidence is critical to their success so every Ashbourne A level student is assigned a dedicated Personal Tutor who provides individual academic and pastoral support and guidance throughout their time at the college. This includes expert careers advice and one-to-one UCAS support, from choosing the right course to interview practice all the way to accepting the best offer.

Ashbourne offers specialised university programmes for students wishing to apply for competitive courses such as Medicine, Engineering and Finance, and entry to Oxford or Cambridge universities.

More than half of our students go on to Russell Group universities including UCL, Imperial College, LSE, Oxford and Cambridge.

Adult-approach to learning

Ashbourne embraces a friendly, informal and adult approach to education, much like a university. We believe this encourages independent thinking, discipline and high expectations.

Superb location

We are situated in a fantastic part of London, near by Kensington Palace and Hyde Park. Many world-class venues and establishments, such as the Royal Albert Hall, the Science and Natural History museums, are all within walking distance.

My time at Ashbourne was everything I hoped it would be and more. I cannot recommend Ashbourne enough for anyone with a drive and a passion to succeed. Charli, English Literature A, Film Studies A, Music A

Fantastic place to learn

We believe this helps nurture confident, self-reliant and independent thinking students prepared for the next stages of their lives. We attract students from all over the world making the college a vibrant, diverse and exciting place to learn.
