Our teachers ...your guides

New courses start 4th Sept 2017... how to apply   

We are fortunate to have a group of experienced and committed teachers who can offer a varied range of A-level and GCSE subjects, and have developed courses that can be delivered over 1 year. All of our teachers have experience of mainstream education, and bring a variety of extra skills and passions. Here is some information you may find interesting.

Principal: Adrian Bradfield. Adrian is one of the college directors and also teaches some of the maths and physics courses. He has a rich variety of experience in both independent and state sectors, and has overseen the college from its inception in 2011.

Chemistry: Gordana teaches A-level Chemistry, and is epecially interested in the practical side of the subject, as this enables students to experience the chemical processes developed during the course. Gordana is helped once a week by a postgraduate research student from Bristol University, who reinforces the theory from previous lessons and answers any questions that may arise.

Biology: Zara is our main A-level Biology teacher, and she has carefully developed a 1 year course that is highly successful. As with Chemistry, a postgraduate research student from Bristol University comes once a week to reinforce theoretical concepts and answers any questions that may arise.

English: Maria teaches our A-level English Literature and GCSE English Language courses, and she is the author of several publications. Maria also has experience of working with students who have special needs, and has helped many with written or spoken communication problems.

English and Sociology: Annette has considerable experience in tutoring A-level students for English Language, and helps to deliver our English and Sociology courses. She has carried out sociological research at a professional level, and clearly enjoys student interaction in these participatory subjects.

History; Government & Politics: Andrew comes from many years as the Head of History at a local school, and is enormously enthusiastic about his subjects! He has produced a book specialising in American Political history, and (like many of our teachers) has experience as an examiner.

Economics; Accounting: Robert has for many years been a freelance tutor for A-level students, and he also has experience of teaching in local colleges of further education. He also contributes to our Psychology course (especially the very long Research Methods unit) - a real polymath.

GCSE courses: The teachers mentioned above mostly contribute to our GCSE courses, with Chris additionally teaching Chemistry. These courses typically do not have as much time per week as A-level courses, but this is in line with most schools and students can take several GCSE subjects.
