For Oxford & Estoril
Greene’s provides individual academic programmes adapted to the needs and aspirations of each student with flexibility regarding combinations of subjects, examination boards and course lengths. Each sixth form student is treated as an individual and has a Personal Tutor to monitor and support their academic progress and welfare at Greene’s.
Our commitment to the tutorial method of learning means that each student is taught by tutors who are committed to supporting their independent study skills and realising their academic and examination potential. Greene’s is non-selective, and enrols students with a broad range of backgrounds, previous educational experiences, interests and motivations. We do however look for students with the potential to work individually and who are prepared to take responsibility for their studies. The range of ability and needs is wide, from those who seek a full course of A level study to students who need to retake some of their examinations.
The college provides a university-style sixth form education – which includes individual tuition, group learning and extensive testing – to encourage resilience and independent learning. Students leaving Greene’s should be curious, independent and analytical thinkers, good communicators, effective collaborative workers and confident in their manner and ability. Above all they demonstrate a caring, thoughtful, questioning and open attitude.
