CCSS takes great pride in providing excellent personal guidance for all of our students, through small classes, private weekly tutorials and exemplary pastoral care.
Average class size of just five
Classes at CCSS are less than half the average for the independent sector in the UK and much smaller than in state schools. The average class size at CCSS is five pupils. Classes this small ensure that students receive individual attention in every lesson, making learning enjoyable and effective.
Tutors keep in close touch with teachers, Boarding House staff, and parents. Weekly meetings with every student provide an opportunity to talk over academic matters, such as time management, work output and preparing the strongest possible university application, as well as any issues of personal concern for the student.
Should the need arise, the tutor has considerable resources to draw on, including:
Extra help with academic skills.
Guidance for university entrance tests, such as UKCAT, BMAT, LNAT, etc.
Work experience where this supports university applications, such as in veterinary science, medicine and engineering.
Specialist attention for specific needs, for example dyslexia, language and other requirements.
