Founded in 1976, as a co-educational college. It is a single site on a quiet residential street, close to Kensington Gardens and Notting Hill Gate. Most students study AS and A-levels but GCSE courses are also available. Some 15% of students are from overseas. The college looks for students with an eagerness to develop their ability and to learn independently in a college environment. Class sizes are small and every student has a bespoke timetable. A few sports and extra-curricular activities are offered and all the facilities of central London are within easy reach.
