GCSE Summer Holiday Workshops

Our Summer Holiday workshops are designed to boost confidence for Year 10 Students going into Year 11.

With the enormous stress of looming mock exams and real exams just a few months away, this is an opportunity to remove the anxiety of the coming year.

09:00 – 12:00 Each day

16 – 20 August

Our professional, qualified and currently practising Teachers will guide your Child through focused activities designed to consolidate the most challenging areas from Year 10 and also prepare them for topics coming up in Year 11.

Our Teachers will work to build your Child’s confidence, develop excellent learning and revision practice as well as reinvigorate them as they launch into Year 11.

Each day will focus on a different subject with a specialist in that area. We will cover English, Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
