Carfax College, part of the Carfax Education Group, is a private independent school situated in the heart of Oxford that specializes in providing the highest quality one-to-one and small group courses to pupils from all over the world. Its primary focus is the preparation of pupils for entrance into leading higher education institutions and schools, as well as the support of both particularly gifted pupils and those with specific learning needs.

Carfax College is a leader in personalisation of education and focuses on treating their pupils as individuals to cater to their individual needs and preferred learning styles. Whether pupils are taking full-time courses, after-school tuition, revising for resits, or working with Carfax’s online team across the globe, all pupils benefit from personalised learning programmes with every course being adapted to each pupils’ learning style, interests, and academic goals. Carfax College’s tutorial system promotes a safe and encouraging environment to ask questions that pupils may not have the confidence to ask in front of a class, allowing students to better understand concepts or develop their curiosity beyond the curriculum. Expanding this curiosity is a key goal of Carfax tuition to encourage independent research, lateral thinking, and spark a love for learning. From the number of hours tuition and structure of the timetable, to the subject choices and course content; Carfax’s expert academic team develop each course in conjunction with the pupil to ensure that each child unlocks their academic potential.

Each pupil receives individual attention, support, and encouragement, not only in pursuit of academic goals but also in terms of their personal wellbeing. Carfax College has a warm and welcoming community which encourages pupils to be themselves and supports them in achieving their goals. With a rich cultural heritage at its doorstep, and sporting and cultural societies flourishing across the city, Carfax encourages pupils to participate in a breadth of extra-curricular activities in the community.

Carfax College offers one and two-year courses in all GCSE and A Level subjects with full careers and university guidance. Younger pupils follow an independent curriculum that has been expertly designed to prepare them for progression to leading senior schools. Long-term and short revision courses are offered year-round for all GCSE and A Level subjects, as well as those leading to other qualifications, such as Cambridge Pre-U or International Baccalaureate. Carfax College also prepares pupils for entrance tests and examinations to selective schools and universities in the UK and abroad. While many pupils come to Carfax College to maximize their chances of successful entry into these universities or schools, others’ priority is to lay a solid foundation for future progress. Close personal support is available for all pupils, including those with specific learning needs.

Carfax College has an excellent track-record of successful entry into Oxford, Cambridge, and other leading universities, as well as some of the UK’s most famous boarding schools.
