How Does Online Summer School Work?
Our online summer school has a similar concept to traditional summer school, focusing on revising study material to prepare students for the new year and refresh key knowledge. At the same time being able to study and revise from home provides students with more comfort, and allows them to feel at ease when learning.
Although the lessons and revision are taught online, there is no compromise to the quality of learning and materials. Students will receive enough breaks during the day and have the chance to ask questions and participate actively in the learning process.
“The explanations my tutor gave of the content really helped me understand the material which allowed us to breeze through the syllabus extremely efficiently”. Year 12 Online Biology Student
“Jos found the course very useful to recap on subjects. The teachers were all very friendly as well as knowledgeable. He was surprised how quickly the mornings went which is always a good sign! From my point of view, the course was excellent – very good content and teaching and suited all abilities. I would definitely recommend and we will sign up for summer subject to the dates. I would be interested in none core subjects too if they were available – French/Spanish/Geography/History GCSE” Debbie
“My son, currently finishing Year 12, attended virtual maths and chemistry courses during the Lockdown. Both filled an important gap for him while he was studying on his own at home. We’re based in a Crown Dependancy and being able to benefit from these courses remotely was very beneficial, enabling him to keep motivated while studying on his own. Specifically, he mentioned to me that these courses helped him to consolidate his subject knowledge and identify gaps in his understanding. It’s also helped him to pin point areas of improvement in his exam technique. He’s been so impressed with these revision courses that he asked to register for the remote summer classes in each of his A-level subjects: In my opinion this just shows how much he’s valued the courses he’s done to date!!” Stephanie
“We chose to book our son on the course “Getting ready for Year 11” as we were concerned about the position of YR 10 pupils going forward. He came off of the calls feeling really positive every day. Some subjects he had already covered and others he hadn’t but he was positive about either revising or being introduced to topics for the first time. He particularly felt confident after the English Language course, which as a dyslexic he finds challenging. I would definitely use Justin Craig again.”
