Ashbourne Independent Sixth Form College
Located in 2 buildings, both just minutes from High Street Kensington tube station, Ashbourne College is one of London’s top private 6th form colleges.
Like most private 6th form colleges, the atmosphere is more mature and informal than a traditional private school, but the focus is very much on academic success and achieving grades to progress to some of the UK’s top universities.
The campus is sleek and modern, with subject specialist teachers leading students in class sizes between just 6 to 10 students. Ashbourne College boasts specialist programmes for Med School, Oxbridge and Engineering applicants, and offers 29 different A-level subjects.
Ashbourne College does not have boarding facilities, but a large number of students reside in nearby student accommodation or homestay families. It is therefore equally suitable for international students, or domestic students who wish to live and study in central London.
Would Ashbourne College be suitable for my child?
Ashbourne College welcomes students from ages 16-19, and the focus is very much on preparing students for university, both academically and socially. Whilst academic progress is closely monitored and personal tutors work closely to support students pastorally, students are expected so be self-disciplined, and motivated to make the most of the support and resources Ashbourne College will afford them.
Ashbourne College is particularly flexible on the courses it offers, and will also consider students for 1 year A-level or GCSE re-sit programmes.
How can I apply to Ashbourne College?
With very small class sizes, it is best to register well in advance for 2 year A-level programmes. Places for re-sit GCSE or 1 year A-level courses are subject to availability and a candidate’s propensity to succeed. Please speak to us for advice and support in making an application.
