Introduction

Looking for best boarding schools in London? This is a truly international boarding school in London. Cambridge Tutors College is a leading international A level and GCSE college, founded in Warlingham, Surrey in 1958 and which now occupies a pleasant park side location in South Croydon.  Approximately 85% of students come from overseas countries including China, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nigeria, Russia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.  The college has built up a strong reputation for excellence in teaching in all subjects with particular emphasis on science, mathematics and economics.  In June 2012, we achieved an A level pass rate of 98% (26% A*, 62% grade A*/A) with around half of our leavers gaining either 3 or 4 A/ A* grades. Many went on to a Russell Group university, including 6 to Oxbridge. In March 2010, in its Social Care Inspection of the college, Ofsted described CTC as a well-run institution which takes good care of its students’ needs, finding evidence of excellent practice throughout. In March 2011, the college was inspected by the ISI (Independent Schools Inspectorate) whose main findings reported the following areas as outstanding or excellent:

 

  • Students’ levels of performance and progress
  • Much of the college’s teaching
  • The college’s assessment system
  • Students’ personal development
  • The college’s governance and management
  • The ethos among staff and students
  • The commitment of the staff to the college’s vision
CTC is governed by a charitable trust which has three main aims:

      To promote high academic standards

 

      To foster international understanding, welcoming  people of all faiths, nationalities and  backgrounds

 

        To create an adult focused environment to prepare students for higher education

Small class sizes, careful monitoring of academic progress and weekly subject testing lie at the heart of CTC’s commitment to high academic standards. Expert guidance and support during the university application process also help to explain why so many CTC students succeed in securing places at leading universities.

Our exam results are consistently impressive. In 2012 62% of A Levels taken were awarded an A or A* grade with 52 students gaining 3 or 4 A/A* grades . 5 students gained a place at an Oxbridge college.

CTC prides itself in preparing students for the challenges that they will face at university and in the increasingly globalised world beyond. Within the College, through our carefully managed homestay programme and through our varied programme of extracurricular activities, students are encouraged to become more independent and to develop a sense of responsibility for themselves and for others.

The latest educational and welfare inspection of the College, carried out by the Independent Schools Inspectorate in 2011, concluded that students at CTC make excellent progress and achieve outstanding results. We know that this is why students and their families choose CTC. The fact that they are also joining a warm, caring, friendly and vibrant international community makes the pursuit of those results a very positive and happy experience!
