GCSE Summer School
This is a five day Course for Year 10 GCSE students starting Year 11 in September 2019. The course will give students the confidence and knowledge consolidation to approach their Year 11 studies with enthusiasm. This will be particularly important for the more challenging reformed GCSE syllabuses.
Students will spend a day on Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Maths and one day of either English Language or English Literature. Class sizes will be small, with a maximum number of 10 students per class.
We will revise some of the topics that were covered in Year 10 and, if there is time, introduce the students to some that they will encounter in Year 11. The Tutors will also go through Exam technique and answering Exam questions with the students. We will liaise with each student beforehand to ascertain the areas they have covered in Year 10 and topic requests.
Summer School Timetable
Lessons will start at 9.15am and run to 4.30pm each day, with two 15 minutes breaks and an hour for lunch. Between 4.45 and 6pm and after dinner there is a programme of sporting activities (volley ball, table tennis, rounders etc.) as well as a BBQ, film nights and a farewell camp fire.
We recommend that students attend on a residential basis as it allows students to bond and make their stay feel like a good mix of work and fun, enhancing their ability to learn. Attendance on a day basis is possible and will include lunch, with pick up at 6pm.
GCSE Summer Centres
Students will stay in the boarding accommodation at the school centres – single & twin rooms available.
