Welcome to Cherwell College Oxford

Cherwell College Oxford is an independent co-educational boarding and day school located at the centre of Oxford, for students aged between 12 and 19 years of age.

We offer a bespoke educational provision with a wide range of A Level and (I)GCSE courses, accelerated one-year, fast-track A level and IGCSE programmes, as well as short-term revision, pre-GCSE and pre-A level courses in the summer.

We strongly support and believe in each individual's unique development, and strive to ensure that all of our students achieve their fullest potential.

September 2021 intake – important information

We welcome applicants from both the UK and overseas who are attracted by and would benefit from a pre-university experience via a quintessentially Oxbridge-style tutorial method of teaching and a breadth of academic and extra-curricular opportunities, which Oxford has to offer.

There are still a few places remaining for full-time academic programmes commencing September 2021

In order to apply, please complete an online enquiry form on our website or send your application in the email form to secretary@cherwell-college.co.uk. Please also attach copies of any recent academic reports or exam results with translation in English (where applicable).

Your application will be reviewed and further information may be requested where necessary.

After the initial assessment of your previous academic progress, the College will interview you in Oxford or set up an online Zoom/Microsoft Teams interview, which will be with the Principal and/or member(s) of our Academic team to discuss your academic aspirations and the appropriate programme of study.  

Are you looking for a GCSE or Sixth Form place in Oxford?

If you are wanting to study or retake A-Levels or GCSEs then Cherwell College Oxford could be the perfect place for you. We consider all student applications equally and are looking for individuals who have a hunger to succeed. We also recognise that no two students are the same and everyone's educational journey is different.

Whether you are studying A-Levels or GCSEs for the first time, are looking to re-sit, or simply just want to study one or two subjects, we can offer the support you need.

Our students enjoy small group classes supported by one-to-one tuition

Cherwell College follows the Oxford and Cambridge tutorial style method of teaching. This is seen by many as the gold standard of UK education as students are able to have their unique needs met and engage deeply with their tutors and  subject material.
