Collingham is an independent, co-educational GCSE and Sixth Form college, which was founded in 1975. Our aim is to enable individuals to discover their strengths, set their own goals and develop their potential and confidence. At the same time, we are uncompromising in our commitment to academic standards, personal integrity and the development of a sense of responsibility. We provide expert tuition, a clear structure of work and a supportive, adult environment.
There are about two hundred students at Collingham, from different backgrounds and across the ability range. Most of our students are between 14 and 19 years of age and those who join for GCSE generally continue with AS and A Levels.
Collingham is located in the heart of Kensington over-looking one of London’s finest garden squares. Our proximity to world-class institutions such as the Victoria & Albert Museum, Imperial College and the Natural History Museum mean students have access to unparalleled cultural and academic resources. The large Arts and Crafts town house has been in educational use for over one hundred years. It has seen pass through its doors the likes of Robert Kennedy, Lord Snowden, Prince Edward, Viscount Linley, and even Christopher Robin Milne, AA Milne’s son and inspiration for the British classic, Winnie the Pooh.
Collingham is a member of The Council for Independent Further Education (CIFE) and we are an ISA school.
Collingham provides a professional, safe and personalized learning environment in central London. In other words, we have the best attributes of a small country school delivered in a vibrant and cultured urban setting.
