Our Defining Values
Carfax Education Story
At the heart of the City of Oxford, the four roads leading from the old city gates form an ancient crossroads. This gave birth to the name ‘Carfax’, derived from the Latin quadric-furcus, literally ‘four-forked junction’. Given that the first Carfax business, Carfax Consultants, was providing guidance to those facing educational choices at ‘crossroads’ in their lives, this was adopted as the title of the company.
In 1610 a fountain was placed in Carfax, sourced by the Carfax Conduit, which channelled fresh water to the citizens of Oxford from its source in the surrounding hills. This fountain has been chosen as the company’s symbol, as it embodies all its values; Carfax College in Oxford, situated close to this ancient site, stands as a fountain of knowledge, with its source in one of most eminent academic foundations in the world.
Carfax leadership team
The main strength of Carfax is in the excellent staff and outstanding teachers that it is fortunate to have brought together. Currently over 50 members of staff work in various Carfax businesses and offices with over 400 tutors and teachers teaching Carfax pupils around the world. Listed in the alphabetical order below are some of the senior members of staff leading the Carfax group, its businesses, and overseas offices.

GCSE & A-levels: What you need to know
Ofqual has made it clear that 2023 marks a transition back to pre-pandemic exam conditions, with results expected to reflect grades from 2019 more than those in 2022. In practical terms, this means that students sitting exams in 2023 will have statistically lower odds of getting A grades when compared to the 2022 cohort. Grade boundaries will be determined after senior examiners have reviewed the quality of the work and there is no set quota of how many students can achieve A grades.
