KS3 Online Tuition
One week's registration security tuition fee is payable to secure a place. It is not refundable or transferable. The registration security tuition fee will be deducted from the final weeks’ fees leading to the conclusion of lessons; used towards unpaid weeks or as payment towards outstanding resources. In addition to the security fee, a month's fee (or part thereof, depending on when the child joins) is payable. Students may need to print homework.
2. TUITION FEE
The group tuition fee is £20 per hour. However, fees are standardise over 50 weeks and paid on a monthly basis.
1 hour per week monthly standardised fee is £83
2 hours per week monthly standardised fee is £166
After the initial payment, the tuition fee is payable on the 1st of each month by standing order. Following the first month's non refundable or transferable fee, a weeks’ notice is requested to terminate tuition or your deposit will be used in lieu of notice. Each month, regardless of the number of weeks tuition, the same monthly group fee is paid. Should your child not complete each 3 month cycle, fees will be calculated using the hourly £20 rate. Likewise, when a full month is not taken, fees are also worked out at the hourly rate.
Mid Year Exams
Children preparing for mid year admission for grammar and or independent schools are usually seen on a 1:1 basis as they normally have less than four weeks to prepare. English, maths, verbal, non-verbal and spatial awareness can be taught. Fees are £50 per hour. We recommend a minimum of 2 hours for the first session.
English Language and English Literature
English Languages still encourages the student to improve their grammar, critical thinking, and general writing skills. However, English Language also teaches the student how to use their theoretical knowledge of the English language to write stories, poems etc. in a creative and compelling way.
English Literature also teaches the fundamentals of grammar and writing. However, English Literature focuses on the critical thinking and analysis side of english. The GCSE English Lit student is taught how to critically read and analyse a book/poem. They are also taught how to construct and present a persuasive argument in response to what they’ve read.
TUITION and ASSESSMENT REQUEST FORM
The New GCSEs from 2017 will be graded 1 to 9.
What will this mean for students?
The new 5 grade is at a higher level than the old C grade.
This means less students will achieve this than the old C.
If students do not get a 5 or higher on the new exam, they don’t get what the government is going to call a “good pass”.
Two thirds of students who used to get a C will not get a grade 5 in the new GCSE.
In the future, those who don’t get a 5 or better will have to continue to take English and/or Mathematics at post 16.
The government may accept grade 4 for the first year or so of the new system.
Entry to post 16 courses will need at least a 4 or 5 in either English or Mathematics.
Entry to some courses at post 16 will need grades 5 or 6 in English, Mathematics or both.
