Students joining St Albans Independent College to study GCSEs do so for a variety of reasons, the most common being that parents feel that their son or daughter will benefit from a small, supportive and hard-working environment.

After only a short stay at the College, students find the supportive atmosphere builds confidence in their ability to express themselves, learn effectively and ultimately succeed.

Given the size of the College, students form friendships quickly and very soon feel at home.

Small classes also help to ensure that teachers are able to focus on the needs of each student.
