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
Choosing to study at Ashbourne College is one of the best decisions that I have made. All the academic tutors gave me a lot of assistance when I prepared for the exams and interviews, especially the Director of Studies, John Wilson and Principal, Mike Kirby, who pushed me a lot when I prepared for the Cambridge University interview

Academic excellence in a relaxed atmosphere! Small classes means that the teachers are able to give the students the dedicated attention that they need not only to succeed but also to understand the material taught.This is a nurturing institution that equips students with all the tools they need in future. I would certainly recommend this school to anyone – but saying this I do not want Ashbourne to lose the close knit family relationship that my daughter enjoys with faculty staff, teachers and students. So I want this to remain as a closely guarded secret!!
Ashbourne is a wonderful place to teach and an even better place to study. The staff treat the students as adults and the mutual respect results in a relaxed university approach to study. Teaching classes that only have a max of 10 allows for individual tuition and greater differentiation within the groups helping the students grow in confidence and develop a love for their subjects. I really like the fact that students are encouraged to refer to their tutors by their first name and feel that this breaks down tutor/student boundaries and means that the students are confident in asking for help. Brilliant students, brilliant tutors, great place to work
