About Greene's College Oxford, Estoril
Greene's College Oxford, Estoril offers a full-time, university-style sixth form education, both in Oxford, England and in Lisbon and Estoril, Portugal – with academic oversight resting with the Oxford college. In Portugal, Greene’s is the first tutorial college and the foremost sixth form college in the Lisbon area. Greene’s is also the oldest tutorial college in Oxford, and quite possibly in the U.K. The tradition of high quality, individual education continues in our college in Estoril. Tuition at either location can be face-to-face or online.
At Greene’s, students are taught and supervised by our outstanding educators and academics, all trained to deliver the very best education, and to guide students towards the highest grades – while maintaining the greatest regard for student welfare and wellbeing. Every student is allocated a Personal Tutor, in addition to the academic specialists, who guides, mentors and encourages the student throughout his or her time at Greene’s, enabling students to grow personally as well as academically. Students are also encouraged to benefit from all the numerous social, cultural and sporting activities Greene’s have to offer, whether in Oxford, Estoril or Lisbon.
Most courses are delivered to students in paired or small group tutorials, with some work in larger seminars. ‘Independent’ and ‘individual’ are widely used adjectives in education, however Greene’s has been truly committed to the tutorial method of learning for over 50 years, and has invested much time, technology and expertise to ensure that students really benefit from a philosophy of teaching and learning that continues to be used in the most ancient of universities.
At Greene’s students are very much in control of their studies and have access to a stream of information about their progress, feedback from tutors, realistic assessments of their likely achievement, together with the reassurance of their Personal Tutor to talk through their personal academic strategy.
Would Greene’s College be suitable for my child?
Perhaps one question to ask before considering Greene’s as a sixth form destination is whether your child is ready to study in a university-style setting. Our aim is to bring all our students to the realisation that, fully supported and guided, they can be independent learners, and that they have potential in areas that may surprise them. Greene’s makes no selection based on academic ability, and we pride ourselves on helping a wide variety of students: for those tackling A levels for the first time, for those wanting a change of direction or a second chance, and for those who want a flexible timetable, for example elite sports people with intense training programmes, or those wishing to pursue an additional academic subject unavailable at their current or previous school.
