Ashbourne Sixth Form College
One of the best colleges in London

Ashbourne is one of the best colleges in London and has been delivering highly successful A level and GCSE courses for more than 35 years. We welcome ambitious and hardworking students from all over the world who will benefit from the exceptional individual attention, support and choice we offer to help them reach their potential.

Our students consistently achieve excellent exam results with more than 50% of our graduates going on to Russell Group Universities including UCL, Imperial College, LSE, Oxford and Cambridge.

Students can choose from a wide range of A level subjects without restriction, and select the right course length to suit their own individual needs. They take lessons in small groups of fewer than 10 students, which provides an ideal environment for them to fully engage and allows the teachers to offer excellent levels of individual attention and feedback on assigned work. Students sit half-termly mocks, comprising past papers, that are followed up in class. This focus on exam technique helps students and teachers measure progress and identify areas to work on in a timely fashion. We believe this is critical to achieving the best exam results.

Ashbourne embraces a friendly, informal and adult approach to learning, much like university, to encourage independent thinking, discipline and high expectations. Building confidence is crucial to success so every Ashbourne A level student is assigned a dedicated Personal Tutor who will provide one-to-one academic and pastoral support and guidance throughout their time at the college. This includes expert careers advice and personalised UCAS support, from choosing the right course, interview practice all the way to accepting the best offer. We also offer specialised university application programmes for competitive courses such as Medicine and Engineering and entry to Oxford and Cambridge. 

We are situated in a fantastic part of London, close to many world-class museums, theatres and institutions, and we attract students from all over the world, making Ashbourne a vibrant and exciting place to learn.

Why Choose Ashbourne College?
StudentsParentsTeachers
Ashbourne has provided me with the platform, the time and the space to grow intellectually. We are encouraged to read widely and since Ashbourne offers extra curricular critical theory, I have found my subjects being independently stimulated and motivated by cross disciplinary links. Aside from academic growth, Ashbourne has offered me a chance to feel a part of something. The opportunity to be the co-editor of Ashbourne Identity, the college’s student magazine, has given me a sense of responsibility, creative freedom and pride toward Ashbourne’s diversity. From Ashbourne’s Christmas Revue to its annual European trip, the college’s nurturing and collaborative atmosphere will remain a highlight of my time at Ashbourne
