Joining the Course


Students undertaking the course are normally expected to have an all round education to ‘A’ level standard and the equivalent of GCSE grade ‘C’ in Maths and English. Experience of working with children is also important. We may make exceptions for applicants who show enthusiasm, commitment and the determination to tackle any areas in their own education that need further development.

The course focuses on many aspects of the teaching and learning process. While it refers to a wide ranging curriculum, it does not cover the detail of each subject.


Annual fees cover the tuition costs of ten weekends and two weeks. They also include all guided learning between weekends, study packs and handouts.  The annual fee for the next course is either £2,500, if paid in full at the start of each year,  or £2,670, spread over 3 payments – due on 1st September, 1st January and 1st May .   In the first year, these figures include an initial deposit of £300, payable at the time of being accepted onto the course.

In addition, you will have to pay for any accommodation and meals you require. You will also need a small budget for materials and books, though we try to keep additional costs as low as possible.

In your second year, you may apply for a loan from the Godparents Trust, for which we can supply details.
