NEW Year 9 Get Ahead Courses.
Justin Craig are offering a special revision course to Year 9 students to help them get ahead and prepare for Year 10.
This topics based course will run on the Monday and Tuesday mornings of May Half Term for both English Language and Maths. Topics are carefully selected to help them with their transition into Year 10.
The course will be:
• A small class of no more than eight students
• An opportunity to meet like-minded students
• Taught by qualified, experienced and DBS-checked tutors.
• A nurturing and friendly environment.

NEW Summer School Prospectus.
We are delighted that bookings are now open for our face-to-face Summer Schools in August.
As well as the academic support, our centre-based courses will allow students to catch up on some much-missed social contact. For residential students, our programme of extra-curricular activities will also allow an opportunity for some fun.

Re-opening of Schools and Summer School
Secondary schools are re-opened from 8th March with a phased return during that week. Attendance =is compulsory and a mass coronavirus testing programme implemented. The Government’s four point plans aims to lift all social restrictions by the end of June, which will allow Justin Craig’s Summer School to run in centres as well as online.
Using Private Tutors
The BBC has reported that the impact of closed schools during the Covid-19 pandemic has led to an increase in demand for private tutors who are not legally required to have their background record checked before working with children.
Justin Craig is well aware of this risk and takes the additional step of undertaking Enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checks on its tutors every three years. There is an elevated risk for any company or school that employs tutors on an occasional basis, so to counteract this, Justin Craig does not rely on school DBS checks, which may have been carried out many years ago but instead carries our regular checks on its tutors in order to protect its students.
Free GCSE Webinar to Help Students
To support those whose education has been affected, the experts at Justin Craig hosted a free GCSE English Language revision webinar at 2pm on Saturday, 6th March. Click here for more information, and we will update on further webinars.
How Justin Craig Courses Have Changed
Justin Craig continues to offer courses although, due to the pandemic, has moved all courses to an online format. We are planning to start centre-based courses again, starting with the Justin Craig Summer School, as the Government is aiming to lift all social restrictions by the end of June.
We have developed a new series of online courses to assist student learning, to fill their knowledge gaps and give them the best chance in their teacher assessments. It’s critical that students stay focused and on-track with their studies and for this reason we now offer the following courses, in addition to our usual holiday courses:
- Saturday School
- One to one tuition
Once we are informed about the evidence that will contribute towards teacher assessments for GCSE and A Level grade awards, we will offer targeted courses.
