Our Approach to Education

Supporting Our Students to Achieve Their Personal Academic Goals

At Duff Miller Sixth Form College we take the time to fully understand our students’ motivation, interests and aptitude, in order to deliver tailored learning plans to help them achieve their personal academic goals.

We encourage critical thinking and successful learning habits to ensure that all our students achieve their full academic potential, in order to maximise exam results and so increase undergraduate opportunities. The staff at our top London sixth form college provide expert guidance to facilitate students’ entry to leading universities, both in the UK and abroad.

Focused Classes

We provide outstanding teaching, supporting the best traditional methods with modern educational practices. Our small, focused classes encourage students to engage in interactive lessons that allow classroom time to be adaptive and responsive to individual performance.

Personal Tutor

Every student has a dedicated personal tutor, who helps manage their learning plans and monitor their progress, and we provide academic profiling using Durham University’s ALIS performance predictors. Comprehensive tutor notes are provided for every subject, giving students an accurate information source that can be used to refer to during lessons, as well as to revise from. Examination technique is honed through weekly practice papers, carried out under exam conditions. Comprehensive, constructive feedback is subsequently provided to ensure continuous improvement.

Approachable Staff

We pride ourselves on our friendly and approachable teaching staff, who are freely available to offer guidance and reassurance, and we provide pastoral care that values every student and focuses on developing the individual. We ensure that our college and boarding environments are professionally managed, welcoming and enjoyable for all.
