A BRIEF INTRODUCTION OF OUR PARTNERS

Cambridge Leadership College

Cambridge Leadership College is a specialist in post-16 education with a difference: their students study A-Level at the same time as developing a business. Their mission is to prepare young people for a future of constant change. The combination and equal weighting of academic qualifications and the opportunity to develop commercial awareness through the creation of students' own businesses is a new and very different proposition in post-16 education. And Cambridge Leadership College staff teach students to take responsibility for their own learning and to do their own thinking. 


Cambridge Leadership College takes advantage of its central Cambridge location to tap into the city’s business community as well as bringing in tutors who have been educated at Cambridge University. Students regularly attend business and networking events so they can meet and learn from other business owners.

The King’s School, Canterbury

The King’s School, Canterbury is often described as the oldest school in England which grew from a school established in 597AD when St. Augustine arrived in Canterbury. Built upon strong historic and academic foundations, The King’s School, Canterbury emphasises and relies upon what is best in traditional independent school education, namely scholarly excellence supported by a caring pastoral and tutorial system, and a wide-ranging co-curricular programme. 


It is, however, continually adapting and reacting to the changing demands of modern education: new subjects are added, new teaching techniques adopted, and there is an increasing awareness of the need to provide programmes of study that match individual needs and skills. Thanks to these, every year about fifty-five of their 6a students make applications to Oxford or Cambridge. Of these, typically up to 40% will ultimately result in a candidate taking up a place at Oxbridge.
