Students are prepared for either GCSE (or IGCSE) or A level courses. Both are generally studied as two year courses. Students are expected to score the highest grades at both levels. We also expect students to develop the ability to reason independently and to communicate their intellectual independence effectively.
The College has a strong record of students entering top universities. Many former Concord students are currently studying at Oxford and Cambridge, Imperial College London, University College London, Warwick University and the London School of Economics. Concord also regularly places a significant number of students in UK medical schools.
In addition to academic study, students are given the opportunity to develop their skills and confidence in a wide range of settings. Sport, music, societies, dance and drama are all important aspects of College life. Students also make friendships with their classmates. These friendships help to develop confidence and give an extra layer of support. Friendships made at the college often last for many years after the students leave: in some cases these friendships have lasted a lifetime.
