Founded in 2015, this is a family-run independent Sixth Form College offering one-year retake and two-year A-Level Courses to a small community of students in the West Midlands.
Located in a purpose-built Grade II Listed building, which was refurbished in 2021, the college offers the ideal learning environment for its exam-focused curriculum. It is small enough to offer personalised support and is more suited to those students looking for a an academically-focused college.
Students at Edgbaston come with a work hard ethic, and the college’s challenging, hothouse style of education will not suit every child. The focus here is very much on results and progress. There are bi-weekly assessments for each subject, weekly personal tutor sessions, and pathway programmes for Oxbridge, medicine and dentistry, and banking, consulting and law.
Students here focus mainly on traditional, academic subjects; most popular are mathematics, chemistry, biology, history, and economics. Other options include economics, English literature, geography, history, physics, politics and psychology.
Most students follow the two-year A Level Programme, but the college also offers a five-term A Level programme and a one-year intensive retake programme; students study three A Level subjects and there are five-six hours per A Level subject each week.
A Level results: A very high 86% of grades were A*-A grades, an increase from 70% in 2020 and 48% in 2019 (the last year that students sat exams). 93% of grades were A*-B.
Leavers’ destinations include many Russell Group universities, with a small number of Oxford and Cambridge offers every year, and many students go on to study Medicine, Dentistry, Law and Economics.
Edgbaston has year-round admissions and is small enough to offer flexible start dates, although the academic calendar runs from September to July.
Fees are £11,250 for the two-year A Level programme, and range from £1,835 to £4,300 per term for retake programmes.
