Earlscliffe is a unique, small sixth form boarding school offering a highly-personalised education for international students aiming to enter top UK and US universities. With small class sizes, intensive teaching and weekly testing (TRaC™), each student’s academic potential is maximized. Having 29 different nationalities at Earlscliffe means that we are a truly enriching international environment for our students.

We offer the best of British 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. Good grades are no longer the only requirement to achieving this goal. As you read our prospectus, you will discover how we offer a breadth of experience and a variety of rigorous supplementary activities that contribute to a student at Earlscliffe gaining a significant advantage over his or her peers elsewhere. Earlscliffe is a small, residential 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 government-led best practice.
