The college benefits from a lovely park-side location in the London Borough of Croydon. The college is a few minutes’ walk from both South Croydon and East Croydon train stations. Croydon Town Centre is within easy walking distance.

Small classes, individual attention

Students are taught in classes of not more than nine. This ensures that students are fully engaged in their learning and that the college’s experienced tutors are able to provide each individual student with the attention and support that he or she requires.

Outstanding examination results

The College’s academic results are consistently excellent. Of all grades achieved by our 2015 leavers:

  • 22% = A*
  • 56% = A* or A
  • 77% = A* to B
  • 90% = A* to C

80% of 2015 graduates gained entry into their first choice universities.

A caring and supportive environment

Cambridge-tutors-studentOnce a student’s application has been accepted the Welfare Department ensures that their start to college life goes smoothly. Staff in the Welfare Department are always available for any issues that students and parents may wish to discuss with them. Our students’ well-being is of the utmost importance to us and we ensure that our students remain happy and well supported during their time with us.

Each student is allocated a Personal Tutor with whom they meet weekly. The role of the Personal Tutor is both pastoral and academic. Personal Tutors will help with any academic concerns, provide support and guidance with university applications as well as being available to deal with any possible non-academic issues.

A varied and well-organised activities programme

Sports and Activities coordinators organise a varied extra-curricular programme. Sports include table-tennis, football, badminton and volleyball. There is a range of lunchtime and after-school activities that students can join such as the singing club, debating society, photography club and the student magazine committee. Weekend excursions take place on a monthly basis and include trips to the tourist attractions of London and to theme parks. An annual trip takes place every February half term to Europe. Recent destinations have included Disneyland Paris, Barcelona and Rome.
