What says..

In spite of its size, the college offers a wide range of subjects, ranging from Greek to law to physics, by dint of having a large pool of freelance tutors it can call on, many of them Oxbridge graduates. Around a third of students have special needs of one sort or another, mostly dyslexia. The one-to-one system copes admirably with, for example, the very bright girl with Asperger's who likes being immersed in two-hour-long lessons, and...

What the school says...

Established in 1934, Westminster Tutors is celebrating 80 years of providing top-flight tuition, and is one of the oldest tutorial colleges in the country. Our tutors are our greatest asset and their qualifications and experience are second to none.

What sets us apart from other tutorial colleges is that we remain true to our origins and every student's programme of study is individually designed. Classes are either one-to-one or in very small groups. We offer GCSE, IGCSE, A level and Pre U courses, as well as private tuition and revision for a very wide range of subjects, from Common Entrance to university level.

Nearly all of our students go on to higher education, and we maintain our long-standing reputation for preparing students for Oxbridge and Cambridge entrance, including specialist tuition for all university admissions tests and interview preparation.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.


This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

What The Good Schools Guide says

Head

Since 2007, Ms Virginia Maguire BA MLitt (40s). Was previously director of studies at David Game College, and lectured at a Thai university for five years, publishing articles on sociolinguistics and aspects of Thai culture. She read English at UCL and gained distinction in her MLitt in English Studies from Strathclyde University. Her own mother took her A levels at Westminster Tutors. As well as running the college, she acts as SENCo, teaches English and delivers the PSHE programme.

Academic matters

This is a tiny organisation with under 50 pupils, most of whom are taking or retaking A levels. The retakers - who may be there for a term or a year - are often high achievers who narrowly missed a place at a top university, and may be adding on another A level to improve...

Special Education Needs

Although we do not have any specific SEN provision, we have a long history of being able to help students who need extra attention. Groups are small, and one to-one-tuition is always available; this policy, and the dedication and experience of our tutors, enables us to help many students. We have been able to accommodate students who are partially deaf, dyslexic, dyspraxic, or who have ADHD, and students who, for various reasons, have not been able to cope with mainstream school.
