Astrum Education is a London-based education group that comprises three colleges: Duff Miller College, Lansdowne College and Chelsea Independent College. We offer one- and two-year A-level, GCSE and Foundation courses, as well as short retake courses.
Astrum Education is renowned for the supportive atmosphere provided by our staff and students and for our success in helping students win places at the UK’s leading universities. We specialise in providing a high-quality education that is tailored to the needs of each individual student. At Astrum, we are proud that our colleges are all different, so students can choose the learning environment that is right for them.
Our small class sizes and weekly tests and assessments allow students to review their academic progress with their teachers and measure themselves against their individual target grades. Astrum teachers are highly qualified and experienced, with many being public examiners or published authors. All are experts in their field, passionate about their subject and as educators.
Astrum Colleges are located across central London. Lansdowne College borders Bayswater and Notting Hill Gate, a stone’s throw from Hyde Park. Duff Miller is located in South Kensington, across the road from the Victoria and Albert Museums. Chelsea Independent College is near Fulham Broadway station, opposite Chelsea FC, and is a five-minute walk from the world-famous King’s Road.
Our pastoral care extends to the provision of, and active encouragement for students to involve themselves in, development opportunities in their college and the wider community.
