Earlscliffe is a member of the Dukes Education group, home to the UK’s leading Oxbridge, Ivy League and US, and medical school application consultancies. Our results are outstanding, and our students benefit from the constant sharing of best practice among our schools, and the stringent standards held to by a wide team of senior leaders who, combined, have an exceptional record of experience and expertise in education.
Welcome to historic Earlscliffe, an independent residential college that offers university preparation courses for 15 to 19 year olds from all over the world.
We offer the best of English education: the so-called ‘gold standard’ A-level programme in traditional subjects, providing students with the best academic preparation for entry into the world’s most competitive universities.
The top UK universities invariably belong to the Russell Group and it is to these institutions that the majority of our students will apply in the Michaelmas Term of their final year. We help Earlscliffe students to make the right A-level choices on commencing their studies with us and guide them carefully through the university application process, while maintaining the focus on academic aims and objectives.
Discover how we offer a breadth of experience and a variety of supplementary activities that contribute to a student at Earlscliffe gaining a significant advantage over his or her peers elsewhere.
Earlscliffe is a small college where each student will find support and encouragement from us all as they at first settle in and then proceed to make their own mark on the college.
As students progress through A-level studies and, with our guidance, make university applications in their final year and then push on to attain their academic aims and objectives, they will forge lasting friendships and lead gloriously busy lives as self-motivated young men and women.
Earlscliffe offers a personalised education like no other college of its kind. It is a unique experience, drawing on the traditions and methods of Oxbridge colleges, top public schools, Ivy League universities and innovative best practice.
With many years’ experience in teaching and leading in well-known schools in England, we believe we are best-placed to provide an arena of academic stimulus, intellectual rigour, cultural enrichment, vigorous internationalism and, ultimately, personal success, in which our students perform to their very best abilities.
Furthermore, we want Earlscliffe students to have fun when learning. The American Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman said ‘the highest forms of understanding we can achieve are laughter and human compassion’.
Since its opening in 2012, Earlscliffe has gone from strength to strength, having achieved ‘The Telegraph’ national ranking of No. 38 out of 4,303 schools teaching A-level and our most recent Ofsted inspection report declaring us to be ‘Outstanding’ in all six judgements.
