Retaking A levels: Rise to the Challenge


Oxford’s oldest tutorial college


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

We offer the support of a sixth form college, deliver individualised tuition, and act as a registered examination centre. Whether students are sitting A levels for the first time, or re-taking examinations, we put students first.

Study at Greene’s College Oxford blends small group or individual tutorials, dynamic feedback on learning, and one-to-one weekly Personal Tutoring sessions to ensure all students have personalised guidance.

Our approach to further education is based on the principles of the tutorial method of learning, and fosters self-confidence, responsibility, and independence in our students. Students have access to our inspirational tutors, academic mentors, and online learning resource, Greene’s Online, at any time, regardless of their location.

The wider curriculum also includes regular Leadership sessions to prepare students for their future careers alongside a wide variety of student-led societies.

Rise to the Challenge

Whether your results exceeded your hopes or if you missed your goal slightly we believe it is time to reframe the concept of retaking: we see retaking as a new path to success.


Did you know that 90.9% of all Greene’s A level retakes improve by at least two grades?

Individualised Education

Greene’s College Oxford invites students to enrol at any time throughout the year, liberating students from a one-size-fits-all curriculum, as well as the fixed academic calendar. Our students are encouraged to identify clearly their academic goals and take strategic steps to achieve them. This means enrolling in the courses that support their objectives, and none of the classes that do not.

Learning without Boundaries

Students at Greene’s College Oxford have access to Greene’s Online, a custom-built online platform, where they can upload their work and review their assessments. Students receive live feedback and can track their progress independently in their own time. Study is in person or online, so geography will not limit academic development.


We also have a college in Estoril, Portugal. Find out more about it here.

Collaborative Learning

We teach through the tutorial method to encourage analytical and creative thinking. This approach to learning is defined by one-on-one tuition, taught in the Socratic style, with an emphasis on independent study. Our students find they can retain more information when guided by their own curiosity – and it provides a more seamless transition from A levels to university life.
