“The great thing about A-levels is that students can focus on the 3-4 subjects they are really interested in. For more breadth, they can add in the EPQ qualification and the International Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, or the Italian ‘corso integrativo’ for entrance to Italian universities or to delve more deeply into Italian culture.
Students are taught in groups of about 3 to 7 students, so they get plenty of opportunities to question and discuss everything.
With 5 hours of directed contact time per subject per week, teachers get to know their students and their strengths and weaknesses very well, and we love it when students pop in for extra help during their study periods.”

“I felt totally supported throughout the university application process; whenever I had a question, I felt like Ruth really knew what she was doing as she helped me navigate the UCAS application system.”
