Summer courses - chemistry lesson 2
Summer courses - maths lesson

Students on our IGCSE or GCSE Preparation Summer Course can choose four subjects from: biology, chemistry, physics, maths, history, English and English literature.

Lessons give an introduction to the kinds of content and skills each subject will need at IGCSE / GCSE level. For example, in science, students do experiments and learn how to describe what they did and explain the conclusions they reached in the same way as they would on our one and two-year GCSE / IGCSE course .

In history, students look at evidence and how to examine sources and write up and explain their findings – skills that are important irrespective of the actual period to be studied.

Throughout, students develop their use of the English language appropriate for studying and for life in a boarding school and the UK generally while socialising with others of many different nationalities. Students learn to analyse texts, develop research skills and present conclusions and results orally, in debates or in written form. Drama lessons help increase confidence in speaking and performing.

Students can come for the whole eight weeks or for 2, 3, 4, or 6 weeks. For a thorough preparation, we recommend as much time as possible. You can study the same four subjects for the whole time, or choose different subjects in different two-week sections.

My teachers were wonderful, they were very kind, and if I asked a question they explained until I understood.

Revision Courses

It is now more important than ever that students achieve good GCSE/IGCSE and A-Level grades.There is fierce competition for university places with admission requirements getting more
demanding each year. Grade boundaries are being tightened to make the exams tougher and the introduction of the new linear GCSE will bring further challenges. The
importance of securing the highest possible grades cannot be emphasised too much. An investment in a revision course will be most rewarding.

  • We offer intensive and structured revision courses run by highly experienced and enthusiastic tutors most in mainstream education from the local schools and colleges many of whom are external
  • Our flexible 1-2-3 Plan allows students to revise a subject over 1, 2 or 3 days.

  • Students work together in small focused informal classes away from the tempting distractions of home life.

  • The small groups allow the courses to be pupil-centred so that the specific needs and areas of concern of each student are addressed. They are able to practice with past papers from their own
    exam board.

  • The interactive nature of the courses is stimulating for the students as they work together in small groups and share ideas, unified by the desire to excel.

  • Our tutors are conversant with all the examination boards and will focus on the core topic areas of the National Curriculum which are covered by all the syllabuses.


Aims of the Courses

  • Consolidate knowledge and fill any gaps.

  • Improve and refine examination technique.

  • Improve on revision and study skills.

  • Tackle individual problem areas.

  • Boost confidence and help students achieve or improve their predicted grades.
