School description

D'Overbroeck's College is a school of mixed learning, rightfully proud of its effective educational programs and a friendly, family atmosphere. Students develop harmoniously and comprehensively, realize their talents and abilities, reveal themselves from the best sides and improve useful social skills. The road to Heathrow's major international airport will take about 55-60 minutes (48 miles).

There is a real college atmosphere in d'Overbroeck's College: everyone speaks to each other solely by name, there is no strict form, the environment is very friendly and informal - in short, nothing resembles strict and ascetic British boarding houses. But this does not mean that there is no discipline: pupils are instilled with a sense of mutual respect, responsibility, comradely shoulder, participation in the affairs of others. Students can freely express their opinion and point of view - teachers treat them as equal, adult, independent personalities, ready to listen and take into account their words.

Sixth Form, or pre-university programs for the preparation of students here are some of the best in the country. Experienced teachers with a specialization in teaching A-level subjects carefully work with students, deepening and updating existing knowledge, filling gaps, paying particular attention to difficult topics and aspects of disciplines. In total, 35 subjects of advanced, complex level of study are offered for selection. Programs Sixth Form attract students from other schools - in total, these courses are taught by 245 people. Graduates demonstrate an excellent level of knowledge and academic studying: in 2014 71% of pupils earned A-A marks on A-level results, 82% - A * and B grades.
