What says..

‘Big but tight knit,’ says the principal. Not for anyone who wants the ‘more custodial setting,’ as he puts it, of a smaller scale school environment. Students flock here from state and private schools for the teaching quality and results. Jaw-dropping displays of talent abound, off the walls when it comes to dance and drama; on them elsewhere.

What The Good Schools Guide says

The Principal

Since 2016, Emma Young, who is also CEO, and was previously deputy principal at Esher College. A firm believer in sixth form college education, has spent her entire career working in the sector. She started her career as a geography teacher at The Sixth Form College, Farnborough. In 2005, she joined Esher College as assistant principal, curriculum and staff development and was then promoted to deputy principal in 2010.

Academic matters

Students flock here from state and private schools for the teaching quality and results. Open access means just that. Five GCSE C/4 grades theoretically opens the door to the 40 A level subjects on offer (including BTec equivalents), though B/6s and above are required for maths and sciences and ‘the better the grades, the easier the transition,’ says college.
