for impartial advice on the BEST SIXTH FORM COLLEGES from Education Advisers Ltd
Private sixth-form colleges offer expert tuition in small groups where you are guaranteed to receive a great deal of individual attention. Fees are generally comparable to, or higher than, those of independent day schools. For an A Level course you can expect to pay £15,000 - £30,000 per year. You will generally pay more for an intensive one year course, and slightly less for GCSE courses.
College fees are obviously linked to factors like
a) Location (and the demand in your area)
b) Academic track record (being near the top of the league tables creates more demand and increased prices)
On top of this you need to budget for accommodation and/or travel costs to and from the college. Bear in mind that the majority of private sixth-form colleges are located in major cities such as London, Oxford and Cambridge, where living costs are high.
Some colleges are prepared to offer substantial scholarships to exceptional students. Normally they would be looking for the equivalent of 8-10 A*/A grades or equivalent at GCSE.
