What says..

It is not bogged down in sacred past traditions and will let students run with whatever the passion of the day might be. Recent student-led initiatives include beekeeping and an outdoor movie event as well as a buggy competition, where it was good to see the girls playing as leading a role as the boys.  Huge numbers take maths, further maths, economics  and the sciences - very few humanities or languages - hence the need for more lab space. ‘Sport’, one teacher told us, ’is not God here. It is a recreation for everyone...

What The Good Schools Guide says

Principal

Since 2005, Neil Hawkins MA (50s), a Cambridge historian whose previous posts include director of studies at The Leys and head of history at Sevenoaks.

Special Education Needs

Concord College strives to fully realise the potential of all of its students; the vast majority of whom are extremely able and who experience few, if any, learning difficulties. However we do have a large number of students, as an international College, who require support in English as an Additional Language (EAL). Furthermore, we have a small number of pupils who require SEN support for dyslexia or dyspraxia. This support takes the form of close monitoring and the provision of some extra classes targeting literacy and numeracy skills. Our small class sizes (averaging 1 teacher to less than 14 students last year) make regular one-to-one teacher support the norm within lessons. 10-09
