Ashbourne was founded in 1981 and has since grown into one of the best private colleges for A levels in London. Our students consistently achieve outstanding results, 56% A*A 2021-22, which has allowed Ashbourne to remain as one of the top two private colleges in London for many years. Ashbourne adds value; our students are among the top 5% of those with similar prior achievements. Almost 60% of our graduates go on to study at Russell Group universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.
Ashbourne is more like a university than a school and bases its success on individual attention offered through small classes. The relationship between students and teachers is engaging, informal and stimulating and embraces a friendly yet disciplined and adult approach to education. This enables students to grow in confidence both personally and academically so that they may take responsibility for their own success and achieve the very best academic results.
