About the college
Cherwell College Oxford provides an exciting and challenging opportunity to study in a mature, yet informal and friendly academic environment. All of our students are closely yet discreetly supervised by highly qualified, dedicated and caring teaching staff and work in an atmosphere of tolerance and understanding. This environment encourages our students to develop their abilities to the full, and acquire the self-confidence, independence and self-discipline required for higher education.
One-to-one tuition, combined with small seminars
The College's distinction is that of tuition tailored to the needs of the individual student. One-to-one tutorial classes are attended daily and supported by small group seminars, lectures and mock examinations.
The tutorial system at Cherwell College, which mirrors that of leading universities, encourages our students to be independent thinkers. Alongside helping our students achieve the best grades possible, this system also allows them to study at their own pace and in the style that suits them best.
Weekly progress tests for the best exam preparation
Weekly progress tests are aimed to track students’ performance and are particularly important to those students whose examination results do not always reflect their true academic potential.
Monthly academic and welfare reports, prepared by each subject tutor, allow parents to closely monitor academic progress. This means students, staff and parents alike are kept informed about our students’ latest progress.
Bespoke academic programmes
The personal ethos of Cherwell College means that our students can choose from a huge range of subjects, as well as embark on their studies at non-conventional points in the school year.
With specialist academic advisors, individual tuition and dedicated welfare officers, the students at Cherwell College are given the necessary support to achieve their full academic and personal potential.
