As a dedicated sixth-form college, we provide A-Level and GCSE courses across an extensive range of subjects and pride ourselves on the depth of our curriculum as well as our excellent teaching methods that help prepare students for adult life beyond CTC.
What makes studying here stand out from other institutions is our unique philosophy of learning and teaching among an extraordinary close-knit community. From the process of choosing their subjects through to sitting their final exams, we offer specialist hands-on support required as part of a bespoke learning programme that works to fuel individual aspirations and craft memorable experiences at the same time.
CTC adopts a holistic view of education in order to equip our students with the necessary skills to excel in life and, as a baseline, we set great academic expectation to inspire them to work hard during their time with us. Our class sizes are very small, an average of six students per class, and our highly qualified teaching staff are experienced in this proven tutor-style setting that stimulates intelligent enquiry and discussion and sees exceptional results year on year.
Using our impressive library and learning resource centre, students are expected to pursue some level of independent learning to foster a better sense of responsibility and taking ownership of their personal development, yet we keep close tabs on them through weekly testing and regular monitoring.
The Head of Year position at CTC oversees both GCSE and A-Level learning programmes and, supported by a team of personal tutors, supervises both the academic and pastoral progress of each and every student that enrols at our College. This close pedagogical care is what CTC is renowned for and what promotes the academic and all-rounded excellence that we continue to witness from our student body.
Please note that CTC offers two routes to A-Level success and top university enrolment:
1) a two-year programme that falls in line with the standard UK Curriculum and
2) an 18-month fast-track programme.
We also offer two pre-A-Level courses, Foundation pre-A-level (non GCSEs) and GCSE courses. In 2016, our GCSE examination results were exceptional with 67.5% achieving A*s and As and 97.5% of all candidates achieving a C grade and above.
