Which are the top independent A Level colleges in London?

Independent colleges are also known as boarding or day schools and some people call them private schools. You have to pay to attend these schools and debate exists as to whether they are actually any better than government funded schools. For this reason, it is important to consider not only the fact that the school is private, but to consider its reputation and performance.

London is a fantastic place to live and study. It is home to the biggest and best hospitals, law firms, accountancy firms, business and charitable organisations in the world and as such provides an excellent environment for developing your professional career early on. Supplement your A Level studies with keen interests in work experience and you will find yourself leaps ahead of the competition for jobs and further education places.
