A Focus on Students
We monitor each student's development, guiding and supporting them along their specific course pathway and can
therefore intervene should difficulties arise.
Our students are assessed and monitored - and given extra support if required. Our teachers are qualified
professionals dedicated to helping students; displaying extra care which is of especial comfort to those students who
might be leaving their homeland and families for the first time.
The Warnborough Philosophy
Warnborough prizes its independence and its international, multi-cultural and multi-racial student body and faculty.
Warnborough believes in forging links between academic disciplines, between the world of learning and the world of
work, and between nations, so many of which are represented by its culturally-heterogeneous student body.
