Maths

Our Maths courses are developed and delivered by qualified and experienced Maths teachers. Our menu covers National Curriculum topics, and schools can specify their exam board (AQA, Edexcel, OCR, WJEC, WJEC Eduqas). We differentiate by Higher and Foundation tiers, as well as Intermediate for Wales. The Topic Focus menu offers a range of one-day options designed to address specific elements of the GCSE syllabus. There are six set options available, and schools also have the option to choose a bespoke combination of GCSE Maths topics.

English

The Topic Focus menu offers a range of one-day options designed to address specific elements of the GCSE English Language exams. Rather than investigate a whole Paper as in the High-5 programme, each option takes learners through the skills required to address the needs of individual exam questions. Schools can choose a one-day refresher on a specific exam question, or expand the course up to a five-day option which will cover all questions. Menu options are available for AQA, OCR, Edexcel, WJEC and WJEC (Eduqas).

English Literature

We have a wide range of one-day revision courses for GCSE English Literature set texts, as well as a one-day skills course for ‘Approaching Unseen Poetry’. These interactive and entertaining courses concentrate on key ideas, themes, contexts, characters and plot, as well as encouraging a personal response from the learners.

Science

We have a menu of GCSE intervention courses available that are developed and delivered by qualified and experienced Science teachers.

Our menu covers National Curriculum topics, and schools can specify their exam board (AQA, Edexcel, OCR Gateway or OCR Twenty First Century Science), and whether their learners are studying Separate Sciences or Combined Science. We differentiate by Higher and Foundation tiers.

In addition, our skills focus menu ‘Working Scientifically’ focuses on Exam Skills, Scientific Skills or Science History.
