CATS College is an independent sixth form college with campuses in Cambridge, Canterbury and London. It provides GCSE, GCE A-levels, International Baccalaureate (IB) and Britain’s first university foundation in the private sector, as well as specialist programmes for high achievers such as Medic Programme and Oxbridge Preparation Programme. In 2018, about 62% of students were able to achieve A*-A grades in GCE A-levels, with 85% of them continuing their education in Russell Group universities.

University Foundation: Britain’s First and a Very Successful One!

CATS College was the first in the private sector to run an University Foundation, which was first taught more than 60 years ago. In 2010, the qualification was officially recognized by LSE and UCL, meaning that students can now apply to these two universities after completing their University Foundation in CATS College. Every year CATS College sees graduates getting into top universities, such as Durham, Warwick , Lancaster , Bath and the like. In the past three years (2014-2016), there are 24 graduates who successfully progressed to Durham University!

Student Case Sharing:
From Below Pass Grades to Durham University

In 2014, BU student Michael Luk completed a one-year University Foundation in CATS College, made astonishing progress in his academic work and was admitted by Durham University Business School.

Michael was not top in class back in his school in Hong Kong. Like many teenagers he sometimes cares more about his hobbies than school work and his grades once worried his parents. These improved a lot when Michael was transferred to CATS College after F.5 where he was encouraged to develop his hobbies alongside school work.

This year (2017) Michael will be graduating from Durham University. CATS College went to visit him at Durham and asked him to share his thoughts about the past four years he spent studying in the UK.

Mander Portman Woodward (MPW) Sixth Form College in an independent sixth form college founded in 1973, with campuses in London, Birmingham and Cambridge. MPW mainly teaches GCSE and GCE A-levels. There are also the options of 1-Year A-levels and Pre-A-levels, tailored to meet the needs of international students! Currently about 70% of students in MPW Sixth Form College are local British students. There is a tight control on class size, which won’t go beyond nine students per class. Over 40 subjects are offered in its GCE A-levels curriculum. Public exam results are consistently outstanding – A*-B rates in GCE A-levels were between 62% to 75% in the past five years (2015-2019).

In addition to being an education provider, Mander Portman Woodward (MPW) Sixth Form College is also a book publisher with a collection of subject guides and UCAS guides which provide students with useful information on higher education.

70% UK Students – Why Do Students Choose to Transfer to MPW for their GCSE and A-levels?

As a sixth form college, the majority of students in MPW are A-levels students who transferred to MPW from other secondary schools, with many of them coming from top schools in their regions! The majority of them would start at MPW after completing their GCSE, while some might transfer during their A-levels years due to different circumstances. And there are also a good number of students who join the 1-Year A-levels programmes to have another go in public exams, as it’s believed that the first attempt didn’t reflect their ability.

Below we have summarized from the student testimonials on the MPW website, in which we have tried to highlight why they made the decision to transfer to MPW, and what they see as the best part of their experience in MPW:

1-Year A-levels

If you have the ambitions and you believe that you’re capable of getting into one of the world’s finest universities (such as Oxbridge, LSE and alike) or one of the highly competitive subjects (such as Medicine, Actuarial Science, Law, etc), then perhaps a 1-Year A-levels programme will be a good option to look at – a second attempt in the widely recognized GCE A-levels qualifications!

From when you express your interest in the one-year A-levels, the admissions team from MPW will already start talking to you, to understand your aspiration and come up with a good study plan for you. These can range from advices on subject choices, planning for work and volunteering experience, to preparation for admission interviews and specialist written tests (such as UCAT and BMAT for Medicine, LNAT for Law, etc). All of these start early because studying in one year what normal students have two years to cover isn’t an easy task!

When students arrive, they will study under the guidance of their teachers and personal tutors – an excellent level of support that crafted a highly positive study experience, as described below by one of our successful students Ulysses!

  • UCA Canterbury – Just an easy one-hour train journey from London and home to three universities, the historic city of Canterbury is a superb destination for international students! Fine Art, Architecture, Interior Architecture are particularly notable courses in UCA Canterbury. Other visual art courses include Illustration & Animation, Graphic Design, Creative Computing and many more!
  • UCA Epsom – Epsom is home to the unique UCA Business School for the Creative Industries, which as its name suggests offers a range of business courses tailormade for the creative industries, such as Advertising, Digital Marketing, Event & Promotion Management, Business Management and more.
