Independent Schools

Oak Heights school

Red Lion Court, Alexandra Rd, Hounslow TW3 1JS, UK – 020 8577 1827

We made a wise decision to choose Oak heights Independent School for our daughter. The school has high standards of teaching specially Maths and science. Mr.Dhillion the head teacher shows special interest in students day to day learning. He is very dedicated to the school and its progress. Mr.Prashar the physics teacher, explains the subject till the students get it, no matter if he needs to repeat it again and again. I strongly recommend Oak heights. As it is better than some of the grammar schools. The bonus is that extra tuitions twice a week included in the tuition fees. 5* rating....

Richmond upon Thames College

Egerton Rd, Twickenham TW2 7SJ, UK – 020 8607 8000

I attended this college from September of 2015 until May of 2018 and I have to say, I first started out doing a performing arts course which I decided at the end of my first year was not for me, however upon going to enrolment the following year, the teachers gave me all the support I needed to choose one that was better suited for me. I studied BTec Business and Law combined in my last two years from September of 2016-2018. I absolutely loved my time here and I would completely recommend that anyone who is thinking of studying here, do it. you will not regret it. Just make sure the course is what you want to do, and if not, change it to do something else. It is well worth your time.

I really love this college, best decision i made. Only thing i wasn't happy about is one of my teachers in my first year was not really good which meant i had to rely on textbooks. however that is not the case anymore and i really love the faculty's' in the college. What i think the college is great at is tackling mental health, they have a great team who help out students efficiently as i have experienced myself. They really work hard to grant employ ability to all students and really informative about UCAS when applying to university.(I did BTEC Business and was got into a Russell group university) Thank you, great college.
