Movin' On Up...

It's that time of year when, pandemic or not, teenagers finish one stage of their education, breathe a sigh of relief, then start thinking about the next one. Under normal circumstances, many schools would have spent large chunks of time preparing GCSE students for the new demands of A Levels but the chaos of this year has meant that some students may not be as well prepared as others.

To help support those students (and parents!) who are worrying about making the leap, I am putting together a four session course of key skills required at A Level. The course will cover the following, cross-curricular topics:

  1. The different expectations of A Levels compared to GCSEs.

  2. How to read and research effectively and critically.

  3. How to take notes and revise.

  4. How to plan and write an essay.

Sessions will last an hour and will include handouts and interactive activities. There will also be a Q&A Zoom session for parents at the end of the course. The course will be charged at £50 per student.
