Bales is an independent GCSE and A Level college located in central west London W10, between Queens Park and Notting Hill.
Students can join us for 1 and 2 year A Level courses, for GCSE courses and for school years 7-9. Students can join in any year group, although most join us for 2 year A Level courses in Year 12 and 2 year GCSE courses in Year 10.
At Bales, we value the individual’s potential and put all our efforts into achieving academic success.
A significant part of the key to success is that students get full support from teachers and work in an orderly and disciplined environment. At the same time, they are encouraged to develop their own independent working patterns. The Bales student is hard-working, aspirational, organised and independent. To achieve and maintain this requires continuous support from well-qualified teachers.
Students need wider opportunities to support their learning in the classroom. To that end, we have annual residential trips, visits to venues in and around London and we bring in visiting speakers whose expertise covers a range of interests.
