Padworth College

Who will Padworth College suit?

The smallest ASIS school – just over 110 students – it provides strong language learning in academic disciplines. There are few formalities – teachers and pupils are on first name terms, no bells and no uniform. College Principal – who is bi-lingual and experienced internationally – aims to let all pupils “be who you are”.  College recognises that international students sometimes have different requirements and sets out to meet them.

Outcomes

Most  students go onto top UK and international universities – there is strength in the sciences, maths and arts. Students undertake IGCSE, GCSE and A-levels, plus additional English language qualifications. The college ensures that every student reaches the English benchmarks required by universities.

Settling-In at Padworth College

The college is flexible with short and long-term courses on offer, including a year-long Business Foundation Course for 17-year-olds covering IT, finance, business and law. Where a student is capable of achieving higher academic success, the very small class sizes and close personal attention from teachers lets this happen quickly.

ASIS View of Padworth College

Padworth occupies a distinct place in the ASIS Federation. It is the only fully international college – 90% are boarders – with more than 20 different nationalities. Situated near Reading and only a short journey from Heathrow airport, it is ideally located for its cosmopolitan community. Very strong individual academic care and excellent academic and artistic results achieved . Founders wanted it to replicate the Oxford model of compatible students learning together in small tutor groups.  A well-bonded community spirit is clearly evident, encouraging international understanding and harmony.
