PRE-GCSE Subjects

Year 9 is a very important year in a child’s education, as it sets the pace for working at GCSE level. Students are now studying over a dozen subjects – an increase of over 35%, broadening their knowledge base and strengthening their ability to learn.

To support students during this significant growth period, we run weekly classes in all core key Stage 3 subjects – English, Math, and Science (Biology, Physics, and Chemistry). Our classes help students improve and consolidate their school learning, while encouraging participation and building students’ confidence levels.

Our teachers are experienced at identifying each student’s individual abilities and talents, quickly recognising if a subject area needs to be honed or the student is ready for more advanced learning.

Pre-GCSE

English

We provide English tuition in line with the National Curriculum that gives students the knowledge and the skills they need to achieve their target exam grades. Students develop the skills and application of reading and writing; focusing on sources and exam questions in a broken down approach to ensure full understanding and development. We fill in any gaps in their knowledge by providing support and guidance to ensure students are confident and prepared for any assessment and for the GCSE examination.

Maths

Our Pre-GCSE Maths tuition supports students during this significant growth period by improving and consolidating their school learning, while encouraging participation and building their confidence levels. Our teachers are experienced at identifying each student’s individual abilities and talents, quickly recognising if a subject area needs to be honed or the student is ready for more advanced learning.

Key milestones Pre-GCSE Maths:
• Consolidate numerical and mathematical ability from Year 7 and Year 8
• Reason mathematically to extend and formalise knowledge
• Solve problems, evaluate outcomes, and model situations mathematically

Science

Over a dozen more subjects are added to students’ school curriculum, and it can be challenging to keep up. Our Science tuition is focused on ensuring your child has a solid foundation and can confidently cope with the pace while progressing towards GCSE level.

Students begin to deepen their knowledge of the scientific ideas and see the connections between the disciplines of Biology, Physics, and Chemistry. They start to understand the big ideas underpinning all scientific knowledge, relate scientific explanations to phenomena in the world around them, and use modelling and abstract ideas to develop and evaluate explanations.

Our differentiated small-class environment enables students to learn at their most suitable level and achieve the best possible results.

Students with a strong interest and advanced ability in Science can learn beyond the National Curriculum level, preparing to go into more depth at GCSE and specialisation at A-level.
