Padworth College is a small co-educational international boarding school for students aged 14-19 providing individual attention in small classes.
The College is an accredited NCUK Delivery Partner for the NCUK International Foundation Year (IFY). The NCUK International Foundation Year (IFY) is a modular programme that prepares international students for first-year entry to undergraduate degree courses. Students study a combination of modules that fit in with their degree destination with four pathways available: Business, Engineering, Humanities and Science.
NCUK programmes are widely recognised around the globe, with many students progressing to the best universities in the UK, the US, Australia and the rest of the world. Successful completion of the IFY leads to guaranteed entry to one of the 33 NCUK Partner Universities, including the University of Manchester, University of Exeter, University of Bristol and a number of other Russell Group universities. The minimum grades required in order to be eligible for the NCUK guarantee are based on results in subject modules and English for Academic Purposes.
Padworth is located in countryside outside the city of Reading. It is 35 miles from Heathrow Airport, the nearest international airport.
Current Foundation course fees are £10,500 per term for 2020/21, £31,500 for a full academic Year.
