Greene’s College exceeds expectations, report inspectors.


Oxford’s oldest tutorial college


At Greene’s College Oxford, our educational philosophy is based on a simple assumption: if a student’s course is tailored to suit their unique qualities and needs, they are more likely to be successful.

Whether students are sitting A levels for the first time, or re-taking, we are committed to putting students first; fostering self-confidence, responsibility and independence. We accomplish this in three ways, namely via our inspirational tutors, the Tutorial method of learning, and the Greene’s student online resource. Tuition can also be delivered online promoting accessible learning for all, regardless of the location.

Greene’s is not an ‘examination factory’. Our academic approach includes a blend of small group tutorials, with instant feedback on learning, and one-to-one weekly personal tutoring sessions to ensure all students have personalised guidance and feedback. Our wider curriculum includes regular Leadership sessions to prepare students for their future careers alongside a wide variety of student-led societies.

Who We Are

Times change: values endure.

Individualised Learning

‘Independent’ and ‘individual’ are widely used adjectives in education, however Greene’s has been truly committed to the tutorial method of learning for over 50 years, and has invested much time, technology and expertise to ensure that students really benefit from a philosophy of teaching and learning that continues to be used in the most ancient of universities.

Online & Face-to-Face

Some of our students live just down the road, and some are on the other side of the world, so location really is no obstacle. We call this learning without boundaries.

Personal academic mentoring

Every student is allocated a Personal Tutor, in addition to the academic specialists, who guides, mentors and encourages the student throughout his or her time at Greene’s, enabling students to grow personally as well as academically.

One Size

Flexible starting time

Greene’s offers students to start anytime throughout the academic year, liberating students from a one-size-fits-all curriculum, as well as a fixed academic calendar.

The Tutorial Method

The tutorial method enables students to think analytically, creatively, and independently.
It provides a seamless transition from A levels to university life. This style of learning is defined by one-on-one tuition, taught in the Socratic method, with an emphasis on independent study.
