School Description

Carfax College is a small non-selective, co-educational, independent tutorial school situated in the centre of Oxford. It was founded in 2009 by Mr Alexander Nikitich. It is part of Carfax Education Group. Carfax College was previously known as Carfax Tutorial Establishment. It was first registered as a school in 2013. The first Inspection report: Carfax College, 13–15 March 2018 Page 7 of 10 inspection of the school was in June 2014. The proprietary body, Carfax Education Limited, oversees the work of the school. It is led by a managing director. Occasionally, some pupils are educated at the Carfax Offices in 25 Beaumont St, Oxford OX1 2NP. The previous principal retired in October 2017. A new principal was appointed and took up post in November 2017. Currently the principal is on long-term sick leave, and she was not present during the inspection. The acting principal was appointed to the post a week before the inspection began. The school offers GCSE, A-level and foundation courses, examination retakes and Easter revision courses for pupils. All teaching is currently through one-to-one tuition. Carfax College is a registered centre for all examination boards. There are currently 25 pupils on roll. About half of the pupils attend part time. The amount of time pupils spend at the school varies from a few weeks to up to three years, to meet the specific requirements of each pupil. Pupils only attend designated tutorials, so there is no general provision. Full-time pupils who stay at lunchtime are supervised off-site. Most pupils are of white British heritage, with a few from Western and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and the Far East. The majority of international pupils on short-term courses are from Russia, China or other Eastern European countries. A small proportion of pupils live with host families during their time at the school. The boarding provision was not part of this inspection. It was inspected in November 2016. It was judged to be good. There are a few pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities. A small proportion of pupils have education, health and care plans. A few students who are above the registered age range attend to complete specific examination preparation. The school does not use any alternative provision.
