Our secondary school menu
Customised programmes to meet your pupils' learning needs or a structured scheme of work based around the most common misconceptions? With our secondary school menu, you can choose the option that's right for your school.
The programmes below are aimed at pupils in mainstream provision and can be delivered on a 1:1, 1:2 or 1:3 basis. If you're interested in 1:1 tutoring for young people facing additional challenges, including those in alternative provision, cared for children and those with severe absence from school, please explore our Tutoring Plus programmes.
Our standard model is for our trained tutors to tailor their sessions based on the school's requirements and your knowledge of the pupils' learning needs. Our additional baseline assessment, specific to each subject and year group, provides tutors with additional information on learning gaps that they can use to plan sessions.
When planning sessions, tutors have access to a wealth of resources linked to the National Curriculum on our online portal for tutors, Thinqi. Many of these are developed by our in-house team of experienced teachers and school leaders. We also offer all tutors continuing support and monitor the quality of delivery. You can find out more about how we do this here.
GCSE Maths Foundations
We have a fully-resourced, 15-hour maths tuition scheme of work, designed to help borderline KS4 students currently working at a grade 3 in GCSE Maths move up to a Grade 4 or 5.
This programme houses the best maths resources in one place and has been formed by education specialists and tutors, incorporating feedback from teachers from our partner schools. It has been designed to prepare students for exam-style questions and focuses mainly on number and algebra. There is also a session on shape and space.
The GCSE Maths Foundations scheme of work has been designed to be visually engaging and accessible. It will also help to build mathematical resilience and improve student autonomy when solving problems.
Literature Lit Up
'Literature Lit Up' is a fully-resourced, 15-hour scheme of work to support your KS3 English programme.
The scheme fosters an appreciation and love of reading increasingly challenging material by using high-quality, engaging texts. With a diverse range of English literature content, your students will feel a connection with the materials they study.
Literacy Foundations is a brand-new set of resources designed to provide KS3 students with the fundamentals needed to be successful in writing, setting them up for success as they move into KS4. The resources will support pupils who are working below the expected standard in Key Stage 3 and have some gaps in their spelling, punctuation, and grammar knowledge from Key Stage 2.
These resources have been put together following a request from one of our partner schools, who identified that some of their students needed support due to lost learning caused by the pandemic. Curated by our team of in-house experts, tutors can take a ‘pick and mix’ approach to the using the resources, meaning that they can be tailored to suit students’ individual needs.
As well as tutoring during term-time, we also work with schools to provide Easter and Summer Schools. Programmes can be tailor-made to your pupils' needs, so please get in touch to find out more.
