Collingham - London
Collingham is an independent, co-educational GCSE and Sixth Form college, which was founded in 1975. Collingham’s aim is to enable individuals to discover their strengths, set their own goals and develop their potential and confidence. With a strong commitment to academic standards, personal integrity and the development of a sense of responsibility, the college provides expert tuition, a clear structure of work and a supportive, mature environment.
Collingham recognises that there is no such thing as the average student and therefore timetables are flexible enough to accommodate the requirements of each individual. Key to student development is small class sizes which allow students to receive specialised individual attention in seminar-style lessons. The average class size is five, and there are no more than eight students in an AS or A level group, nine at GCSE. All students at Collingham have a personal tutor responsible for their welfare. The personal tutor monitors progress, provides a sympathetic ear and can give advice on both academic and personal matters. The job of the personal tutor is mostly one of guidance and encouragement, but also firm direction. Personal tutors are in constant touch with subject tutors and maintain close contact with parents.
