HIGHLIGHT INFO

Located on a charming street in the Belsize district of North London, Fine Arts College is a highly-regarded independent, Sixth Form day school specialising in the study of arts, humanities, and social sciences. A classic curriculum of Ancient Greek, Latin, French are just part of the school’s overall A Level and GCSE subject offerings. Pupils have a pass rate of 100% of which 92% are A* - C grades, and virtually everyone goes on to university. In addition, a one-year, post-college portfolio course is available for students preparing for art school entry who want to study fine art, film-making, graphic design, photography or related courses.

Facilities

There’s no city more exciting than London. Being in the capital offers students the perfect opportunity to experience the British way of life and enjoy a wealth of artistic inspiration. International students especially appreciate the easy access from the school to central London, which houses some of the best art galleries and museums in the world. From Belsize Park underground/tube station riders can arrive at Charing Cross tube station in just 25 minutes. From there, famous sites like Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and The British Museum are within a 10-minute walk. The college’s main site features a secluded courtyard nestled within the characterful buildings of a former Victorian dairy. The modern, airy classrooms house specialist studios for photography, media studies and more, plus there’s an extensive library of books and films.

Sports & Arts

To balance out a stimulating academic programme, the college runs weekly afternoon sports and activities, including team sports like football, netball and Olympic-level fencing, as well as individual activities including yoga and personal training. Outings to galleries, theatres, concerts and cinema are the norm at Fine Arts College. Study visits have also been planned to Paris, Florence and Rome, and there are regular musical and dramatic performances held throughout the year.

Student Life

Most students at Fine Arts College arrive looking for a private college environment that will help them to grow academically and creatively. Many have found that other schools’ approaches to work are too prescriptive and rigid, which can be counterproductive and stifling for many students. Fine Arts College gives students the freedom to learn and encourages a community atmosphere in which each student's unique talents and ambitions are supported.
