WELCOME TO WESTMINSTER TUTORS – ONE OF THE BEST INDEPENDENT SIXTH FORM COLLEGES IN LONDON

Westminster Tutors is one of the oldest and best independent sixth form colleges in London. Established in 1934, our culture of scholastic excellence is deeply embedded and we continue to set the standard for other colleges to follow.

We achieve exceptional results because of our unique approach. Students are either taught one-to-one or in exactly matched groups of 2-3 students. Lessons are therefore precisely tuned to give each student the right amount of stretch so that significant academic progress is made. Due to our approach we are also totally flexible, with adaptable timetables and courses tailored to each student’s needs.  We are also the only college to offer personal mentoring to every student on a weekly basis, which helps each one of them flourish and achieve their fullest potential.

We welcome enquiries from prospective students and their families, and provide personalised guidance based on the individual student’s aims, choices and needs. Please therefore feel free to contact us to arrange an appointment.

An introduction from the Head

Welcome to Westminster Tutors, where academic excellence is cultivated in a caring and attentive environment that is expertly crafted to support our students’ achievements.

Nestled in the heart of South Kensington, we are not, as the name might imply, in Westminster or a tutoring agency. Instead, we stand proud as one of London’s best independent sixth form colleges, fostering a rich history and an unwavering commitment to our students’ educational and personal development, which is realised through bespoke teaching, learning, and pastoral care.

Whether you are retaking exams, seeking to re-enter education, or transitioning from alternative education systems, Westminster Tutors is here to help students excel. Our students witness remarkable achievements, and our college has a proven track record of securing placements at top universities in the UK and abroad.

As we operate with limited numbers, especially for those with more complex needs, I invite you to arrange a call or visit Westminster Tutors at your earliest convenience. I am eager to meet you in person and showcase the essence of our unique and exceptionally successful college.

5Private Sixth Form College in the Heart of London

Westminster Tutors is a private sixth form college in the heart of London. We can be found on Old Brompton Road, which is only a few minutes’ walk from South Kensington underground station on the Circle, District and Piccadilly lines. Our location in central London means we are just around the corner from the V&A, Science and Natural History Museums as well as the Royal College of Music, Institut Français, Royal Geographic Institute and many other prestigious organisations.

Our Courses

At Westminster Tutors, we teach all of our courses either one-to-one or in very small groups. A typical sixth form A level student would study three subjects over the course of two years, although we often admit ambitious students who are studying a fourth subject or an EPQ. Students also join us to retake their A levels over one year or six months, going on to achieve results which lead to exceptional university destinations.

In addition to our courses for enrolled students at the college, we offer private tuition and Oxbridge preparation for students at other schools who wish to enhance their grades and UCAS applications with help from our expert tutors.

Students’ Results

Every year our A level students’ results are consistently high, reflecting both the hard work they put into their studies and the expertise of our teachers. On average, 57% of all A level grades are A*-A while 80% are A*-B, and we hope our results continue to be strong this year. We take particular pride in our results as we are a non-selective college, and our students make exceptional progress from their starting points. Students on our A level retake courses perform equally well: over the last few years they improved by an average of 1.5 grades.

SUBJECTS OFFERED

We offer over 25 A level subjects and teach all exam boards. While we have our own chosen exam boards, our unique one-to-one approach enables us to offer a seamless transition for students who join us in Year 13, continuing them on the same board and units, and our A level retake students cover exactly what they need.   Read more
