An education unlike any other for students who are ready to immerse themselves in a learning experience of innovation, leadership and academic excellence.
We believe that students benefit significantly from individual and small group teaching, which has been shown to improve retention of information, enhance critical thinking skills, develop confidence and presentation skills and consolidate learning. For that reason, individual and small group tuition is part of every student’s learning at Greene’s.
You are assigned a Personal Tutor to help plan and support your academic progression. Your studies are personal and bespoke – relevant activities and excursions can be included, tutorials can be added on a subject or skill on which you need more time, and talks by visiting specialists are thought provoking and keep you up to date with your university and career choices.
With a tradition spanning 50 years, we welcome students from all over the world, offering the benefits of a unique learning programme, specific to individual needs and aspirations.
- A level study across a wide range of subjects
- A level retakes to improve on your university choice
- The unique Geoscience Diploma as an alternative to A levels and for direct university access
- A foundation year to prepare for effective A level or Geoscience study
Each sixth form student at Greene’s takes our Leadership programme to develop the skills needed for academic and career success.
