It can often be quite daunting to search for a new school or college. I this article we have compiled questions which students and parents tend to ask us most frequently
Congratulations to our GCSE students who received excellent results today! Well done on your hard work throughout this year, and all the best for your future studies.
Results day has certainly been unique this year, and despite the strange circumstances, students at Westminster Tutors have achieved some excellent A level results.
Westminster Tutors is perhaps uniquely able as a school to respond to Coronavirus. While keeping any physical environment safe is only ever a matter of reducing risk, one to one tuition is safer than classroom teaching.
The final run up to A level results day is always very nerve-wracking, and the difficult circumstances this year mean, I fear, that some of you are feeling more worried than usual.
This summer there were no A level or GCSE exams and all grades will be awarded via centre assessment. This means that the usual post-results services, such as access to scripts and reviews of marking, will not be applicable.
Following the cancellation of A level and GCSE exams for the summer 2020 series, Ofqual have confirmed that an autumn exam series will be held in October 2020 for A levels and November 2020 for GCSEs.
London is considered to be one of the biggest and best cities in the world. A city where you can find some of the best private sixth form colleges. So how can one of these private London colleges help you?
In response to the global coronavirus pandemic, this year’s summer A level and GCSE exams have been cancelled. Students will still be awarded grades as they would in any other year, but these will be calculated from centre assessment grades.
I would like to announce that I am stepping down at the end of this academic year, and that our Vice Principal Joe Mattei will be taking over as Principal in September.
While schools and colleges have been asked to close, Westminster Tutors is still open but we are operating remotely. We are open for enquiries and we are teaching online, conducting lessons via Google Meet or Zoom, and using Google Classroom to share work.
The DfE have just published the 16-18 performance tables for 2019 A level results, and Westminster Tutors has achieved exceptional results!
This year A level results will be released on Thursday 15 August 2019. Westminster Tutors students will be able to email, phone or come in for their results from 9am on results day.
Summer is an anxious time for many students as they wait for A level results day on Thursday 13 August 2020 and to hear whether they have secured a place at the university of their dreams.
Last month, we were inspected for the second time by Ofsted, and we are extremely proud that we have yet again been awarded “Outstanding” in all six judgements. Well done to all students and staff, who thoroughly impressed the inspector! In our report, the...
London. One of the biggest and best cities in the world. Internationally renowned as a major player for work and opportunity, but also as being home to some of the best private sixth form colleges.

If your A level results didn’t turn out quite as you’d expected, don’t give up hope just yet. There are still options available to you, and among those are revising for your A level retakes.
Studying full-time can be a real challenge, both mentally and physically. So when your A level results come back with grades that are somewhat underwhelming, it can feel like all your weeks and months of study was pointless. So what’s next?
