Introduction

Oxford Tutorial College is a well­-established independent sixth-­form college specialising in preparing candidates for university entry. There is a strong culture of industry and self­-motivation, which encourages a growing sense of responsibility. The college delivers a quality education in a supportive environment, thus providing the ideal springboard for success in the GCE examinations, at university and beyond.

Courses offered

The college offers A-level and GCSE courses over either one or two years. Retake courses are also available over one, two or three terms. Small groups are taught in well­-appointed classrooms and teaching is carefully tailored to meet each student's needs: individual tuition is also readily available where appropriate.

Academic work is supported by regular meetings with a personal tutor and by frequent progress tests. Specialised support is available for those who need to develop learning skills and all students benefit from the emphasis placed on study skills and examination technique. The college offers all the traditional school subjects plus others less widely taught with no restrictions as to the choice of subjects or subject combinations.

Intensive AS and A2 Easter revision courses are offered in a wide range of subjects on a residential or non-residential basis, based at Brasenose College, just 200 yards from Oxford Tutorial College. Non-residential Easter revision courses are also available in the core GCSE subjects.

College amenities

Facilities include a well-stocked library, a new IT suite, resources areas, a music and music technology room, art and design and photography suites, a welfare office and student common room.

The Higher Education advisers provide guidance at every stage of the university application process; the college has an excellent record of placing candidates on competitive degree courses.

While many of our students live within convenient commuting distance, for those whose homes are further away, excellent accommodation is offered with selected families or in one of two student hostels.

Students may choose from a wide range of sporting options, and from a variety of extra­-curricular activities organised by the student common room committee. They are able to join the nearby Oxford Union, with its well­-stocked libraries and stimulating programme of debates and speaker meetings.

Location

The college occupies a fine set of Victorian buildings in the heart of this ancient university city; it is just a few minutes walk from the railway and bus stations, and there is a convenient park­-and-ride facility for those travelling by car. London and the Thames Valley are particularly well-served by public transport, and there is a fast direct coach link to Heathrow airport.

Members of Staff

The college has a staff of highly qualified and experienced tutors including many Oxbridge graduates. They are an unusually gifted and dedicated team whose teaching priority is to maximise examination performance in each student they work with.
