Students’ progress and attainment in their chosen subjects is excellent and teachers monitor progress effectively through the college’s comprehensive tutorial system.’ ISI Report 2015

LTC is a non-selective independent tutorial college. We want every student to optimise his or her potential. We look at school reports, interview in person or via Skype and conduct a basic assessment to determine the best possible support. This enables us to tailor-make programmes to suit the individual needs of every student.

As an independent tutorial college we can offer a flexibility that many traditional UK schools cannot offer; to students who flourish in a smaller environment, which particularly suits high achievers wishing to secure places at top tier universities.  For students whose English levels or subject knowledge is not strong enough to join a GCSE or A level, we recommend a tailored pre-sessional course.

ENTRY CRITERIA

We are happy to accept both boys and girls from the UK or any other part of the world, between ages 9 to 19. International students will require a minimum equivalent of IELTS score of 4.0 – 4.5 for GCSE/IGCSE and 5.0 – 5.5 for A level, otherwise they will struggle to participate in class. Students are expected to have a higher level of English for fast track options.

Students complete a LTC written English assessments and interview via Skype and for GCSE and A level students will require copies of current school reports and do a subject assessment. If necessary, we will recommend that a student takes a pre-sessional programme in English only or in conjunction with academic subjects.

ENTRY TIMES

Our courses are set on weekly or termly units. Academic as well as short courses or English language programmes start on Mondays and end on Fridays. On Saturdays students take part in our Saturday projects. If accommodation is needed, this is also calculated on a weekly basis from Sunday to Sunday.

The best thing about LTC is that the atmosphere is so friendly! You can always feel that there are lots of people who can support you. The way how you relate to each student is just amazing! I’ve never met that in schools before. It is very important that you think about each student, try to improve his/her skills and communication. Thank you so much!!!’
