London A Level Results League Tables

Ashbourne students’ consistently outstanding A level exam results which have enabled us to remain in the top two of similar private high schools in London for many years. Ashbourne is also placed in the top 5% of UK schools and colleges that offer A levels as a result of the level of performance improvement we achieve, or ‘value added’. And more than half of our graduates go on to study at Russell Group universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.

For the first time this year, the tables also show the number of students who gain good grades – at least two As and a B – in so-called “facilitating subjects”. These are subjects that are commonly seen as a route into leading Russell Group universities.

The measure reflects achievement in maths and further maths, English literature, physics, biology, chemistry, geography, history and modern and classical languages.

Examination results are essential in appraising the achievements of private institutions, as well as those obtaining significant improvements with disadvantaged students. A level league tables are a useful resource and they provide a significant marketing tool for all schools. There are few schools, whether comprehensive, grammar or private, that do not select students in some way or other. For private schools and grammar schools, this selection begins at entry for students aged between 11 and 13. For state schools, under-performing GCSE students will be not be allowed to take up A levels but will be offered the choice of vocational qualifications such as NVQ or BTEC. Ashbourne Independent Sixth Form College, one of the best colleges in London, offers two year A level, 18 month A level and a one-year intensive A Level course programme, providing a wide range of subject choices.

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
During my three-year ride as an Asher, new doors opened up for me to a new world in which I found my true passion. It is encouraging independent learning while providing students with sufficient support when needed, along with its active, lively and friendly atmosphere that give Ashbourne its uniqueness. The location is great and adds to the liveliness of the atmosphere. As far as academia is concerned, the necessary platform for success in most subject areas one might be interested in is provided. The rest is up to the individual
DanialMedicine at UCL
Gained responsibility and independence and has a mature approach to their studies
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
