Excellent A-level Results
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.
At Albemarle each student has a personal tutor who will monitor their progress and help them to meet targets for work submission. They'll also provide advice on study skills and career choices.
Class sizes at Albemarle are kept small - the average is four to five students, with a maximum of eight in each class. As a result, tuition is centered on the students, who are able to fully participate in class discussion and, crucially, encouraged to develop independent thought.
All our A-level students plan to go on to study at a reputable university and we provide specialist advice on choosing a suitable degree course and university. Many students find choosing the right course a daunting task so an important part of our job is to equip students with the tools they need to make that choice. Many of our alumni visit to offer advice to current students and provide an insight into their experience of university life.
The Principals themselves take an active role in career planning and arranging work-experience, essential to getting students on the right path to success.
