Y11 pupils kick off GCSE tuition with MyTutor

We’re really pleased to share the exciting news that this year, a group of our Year 11 pupils are receiving online one-to-one tuition in core subjects with MyTutor, to help get them ready for GCSE exam success.

The lessons are taking place after school in the library, supervised by Mrs McCavish and Miss Holt, and are designed to build confidence, reinforce classwork and fill in students’ individual learning gaps.

Through the programme, our students have been matched with top tutors studying at the UK’s leading universities. Lessons are hosted in MyTutor’s interactive online learning space, and are all recorded, so pupils can use them as a revision tool in the run-up to exams.

For more information, visit the MyTutor site to see how it works, or have a look at this video of MyTutor on the BBC.

My Tutor

We're really excited to be working with My Tutor to provide bespoke tuition to our Year 11 students. We are particularly focused on working with our More Able students, providing them with the extra tuition needed to secure the top grades. Many of our students can't afford private tuition themselves, so we are delighted that we are able to do this for them as a school.
