About Albemarle Independent College
Based in the heart of Central London, Albemarle College is an independent college offering broad GCSE and A-level programmes together with revision, retake and refresher courses.
Albemarle has a reputation for excellent A-level results. Every full-time, two year A-level student has achieved a 100% pass rate with grades of A, B or C. Students are taught very much by traditional methods, in small groups, concentrating on the skills needed to pass examinations and to be successful at university.
All tutors at Albemarle are subject specialists and most have experience as examiners. They are particularly successful with young people: able to motivate and communicate with them in ways which they understand.
Barriers are quickly broken down, enhancing the learning process
Class sizes at Albemarle are kept small - the average is four to five students, with a maximum of eight in each class. Tuition is very much centred on the students who are encouraged to participate fully and, most importantly, to think for themselves
Each student has an initial consultation with one of the Principals to establish goals and objectives, plan a strategy for sitting examinations (particularly important for modular courses) and to ensure that the correct subjects are chosen.
