Russell Group University Admissions

Ashbourne students consistently achieve outstanding A level exam results, (50% A*/A over the past 5 years) and 54% of our graduates go on to study at Russell Group universities, including Oxford and Cambridge. Each A level student at Ashbourne is assigned a dedicated Personal Tutor who provides individual academic and pastoral support and guidance throughout their time at the college, which includes expert careers advice and one-to-one UCAS support, from choosing the right course, writing the perfect personal statement and interview practice all the way to accepting the best offer. We also offer specialised university application programmes for competitive courses such as Medicine, Engineering, Finance and related courses and entry to Oxford and Cambridge Universities.

Why Choose Ashbourne College?
StudentsParentsTeachers
I loved the casualness between teacher and student and also I loved the fact that I was essentially, the one responsible for myself and parents were not frequently contacted for any reason i.e to sign up for clubs etc. The responsibility- to turn up on time, to hand in homework on time, to revise effectively- all being left to me, really spurred on me to be productive and hard working. I hope to eventually be working in the city as a trader for a large bank, after doing this in the short term I hope to take money I have saved and open a fashion retail store that stocks up and coming brands in London somewhere. I genuinely feel like Ashbourne has given me the confidence i once lacked to be able to do this

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
