CARFAX COLLEGE IS PROUD OF EXTRAORDINARY SCHOOL ENTRANCE RESULTS!

A British boarding school education is valued throughout the world and the best schools set high entrance standards. Carfax College has many years’ experience in preparing pupils for these highly competitive examinations. Following months of intense preparation, long hours of practice and commendable dedication, not only did our school preparation pupils gain admission to some of Britain’s most prestigious schools, but there is no pupil left without an offer. Even better – 100% of pupils this year received offers from their top school choices!

Throughout their time at Carfax College, our school entrance candidates studied intensely, but have also enjoyed Oxford’s rich cultural and sports activities. Our pupils went to Blenheim Palace, punting, kayaking, to several plays and concerts, organized quiz luncheons, and made invaluable friendships. We want to congratulate all pupils and tutors for their hard work, and wish our extraordinary pupils the brightest future ahead.
