Don't bother it's rubbish. The teaching quality is exceptionally poor and some of the staff are rude, especially the manager. Also the facilities are cramped and stuffy, all in all a huge waste of money.

I currently go there and I'm in AS and the teachers are basically all rubbish except the maths teacher. The manager asks for too much work and is very demanding as if we do not have school work to accomplish during the half terms.

It's actually really good. It took me ages to get my place there and I attended for three years as did my older brother. Are you sure you are talking about the same Cherry Hill as there are some rip off people that might be using the name. I am interested to know as they don't take on many people. I made a lot of friends there and did not meet anyone that was unhappy.

Cherry Hill is really good. I tried two other places for A Level Biology before hand but they didn't work. These guys are really strict and work you hard. I got two As and one A* when I was there and only did my A Levels with them. My older brother did his GCSEs in year 9 with them. Their teachers are all really good.

My friend got rejected when she applied and she was annoyed but I sort of understood why. If you are applying now you may have to wait a year to get in so apply when you are in year 11.

Hey. I did really well with my Biology A levels at Cherry Hill Tuition. I was recommended by my friend's sister who did her Chem there a few years ago and she got an A. The tutors were excellent and did a lot for me. I think A level bio was quite difficult compare to my other A levels and it did struggle at the start. You hav to work quite hard, they are strict so may be it is not for everyone. I got an A* with them and also sat my exams there. I would recommend it to those that are prepared to work hard. I met some friends there and most of us went on to do Medicine and Dentistry. I would recommend. Be warned that you have to apply early because they don't take on a lot of students.

Hey. I agree with Raj and Akil who I studied with at Cherry Hill. My comments above state the truth of my experience in that Chery Hill is really good and I will forever be grateful to them for the help they gave me. Medaspiring, who are you because everyone that finished the course did really well and pretty much all kept in touch. Did you get rejected or are you from another tuition centre that has lost all their students. lol. They only take on a few students each year so I am curious to know who "medaspiring" and "lolmyname" are because the stuff you are saying is a bit confusing. The rules there work around each student so not sure what you mean with your comments. Plus no one in my year there did badly so who are you. lol.

I am a local school teacher in the London Borough of Hounslow. I must say that the pupils in my sixth form that attend Cherry Hill are extremely well taught and very well prepared. It is an honest opinion coming from a teacher that needs help for his students wherever it can come from. Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths are very difficult A Levels and should only be taken when needed. I am very careful recommending external tuition places as well as external tutors, but to me Cherry Hill have proven themselves over the years that I have taught and observed their input. Very dedicted and very thorough. I hope this helps.

It's definitely good and I recommend it. Got help when I needed it and was taught well. For me my day school became good for revision only as I found myself learning most things first at cherry hill. With some topics the order might be slightly different to my school buy after a few months it all levelled out. Two of my friends applied there recently but were told they couldn't get a place. They are not a large school type place and I see when I am there that they keep the number small so they can know everyone.

It's really good. Remember that it's only 2 hours a week unless you do more. You get homework and all the teachers I have had are good. Most are old and have experience. It's also not big and that means everyone knows everyone. The only do tuition and are very specialised so I guess that helps. I have recommended to a lot of friends but most didn't get in.i would still recommend. Hope that helps.

It's really good. Very difficult in the beginning as the workload was a bit of a shock for me. The previous tuition places I went to did not have such heavy workloads and just helped a bit with the work i was stuck with at school. At Cherry Hill I don't think they really use text books and make the work for the children which I thought was really good. Everybody that goes there is normally recommended so when you apply make sure you tell them who you know as it will help get you in. Also, if you don't like strict and don't want to work hard, then may be don't apply. If you don't keep up they will ask you to leave to avoid spending money. I was given one warning and then got my act together so I could keep my place. It you want to get an A or A* then Cherry Hill will definitely help. They are not big and don't take on many pupils. The ones they do take on do really well from what I know.

It is really good. I would recommend . I did my A Levels and GCSEs there a while back and did well. A Level grades were A* A B. Bro went there for his grammar exams and got in. They listen when you need help and support is good. It's only two hours a week normally so you need to go to school too. They dont take on loads of pupils which is good for when you need attention. Again, If you are prepared to work hard they are good. So again I recommend.

It's a really good place to study. Like with some of the other people's comments, many of my family members attended there. Lessons are only two hours a week so don't expect miracles at the last minute. They are quite small, and don't take on many pupils, but they are very organised. They made a system of learning for me. The establishment must be very old as it has been around for a long but in my opinion that have really mastered what they are doing. I did my A levels there and got an A* in Bio and an A in Chem. I wouldn't take a chance with my life with an unknown place so would only ever recommend Cherry Hill to do the job. Nothing is guaranteed but with them,. you are in good hands so yes - you should try it if you get in.

stay well away from cherry hill. Their aim is to take as much money from parents and not deliver sufficient service. The tutors are all University students and therefore not qualified tutors. Most of them do not even go to top Unis. I advise finding a qualified tutor with good educational background who is willing to go out their way to help.

A bit late but if anyone is looking at this thread now (in 2020) after the exam cancellation - they tried to SCAM me.
