Based in the heart of the ancient university City of Oxford, Cherwell College is a leading independent college, with excellent boarding facilities, specializing in pre-university education for students aiming to achieve the qualifications they need to progress onto higher education. Since its foundation in 1972, Cherwell has established and maintained a sound reputation based firmly upon its founding principles: treating the student as an individual; delivering first class teaching by a highly committed and dedicated staff; providing a learning environment that is positive, highly motivating, encourages industry and responsibility, yet is both enjoyable and highly rewarding.

Cherwell offers both first-time and retake courses at A-level and GCSE over one or two years. Teaching is delivered through a combination of one-to-one tutorials and small group seminars, allowing for thorough syllabus coverage and careful attention to the needs of each student, enabling them to develop an understanding not just of the course content but also the study skills they need to apply their knowledge successfully in public examinations.

The college also supports students at other schools through intensive study and revision programmes at Easter and throughout the year.
