It is always a difficult question and one that Greene’s College Oxford’s Principal Mrs Carmen Dare regularly answers from students, parents and teachers concerned about A-level transfer during the academic year.

When students transfer to Greene’s for their sixth-form studies, they soon discover that an individualised, university-style education opens up a new path to academic success. Students begin to exude the confidence to explore, communicate, and take control of their own lives.

Lili, Greene's Transfer Student

I was really burnt out at my last school and utterly exhausted all the time, I couldn’t focus, I couldn’t remember anything. I didn’t even notice how bad I felt until I joined Greene’s – I have so much more energy, I can sleep, I can focus, I can remember facts, so it was really good for me – transferring to Greene’s.

Mrs Dare said: “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.” Whether students want to transfer from AS levels to A-levels, between examination boards, or simply continue where they left off at their previous institution, we are experts in designing a programme that suits every A-level transfer student with minimum interruption to their ongoing studies, Greene’s provides a truly seamless transition.
