COURSES

At EXPLORE EDUCATION we offer a wide range of subjects at all Key Stages across all the different boards. This includes Edexcel, AQA and OCR.

Maths

Highly skilled Maths tutors who can not only help students struggling to achieve the results they know they are capable of, but can also give extra enrichment to students who find the maths being taught to them at school not challenging enough. Mathematics is a compulsory part of the curriculum that students should have a firm grasp of. This could be anything from SATS, 11+, to GCSE or A-level.

English

English is one of the most important subjects on the National Curriculum and one which many students struggle with. Whether your child is a reluctant reader and writer or an aspiring novelist, we can prescribe a needs-based English tuition plan. Our tutors are able to provide key skills examination boards look for in English assessments, coursework and exams, but they are also more than willing to push any student who is particularly gifted in English to go beyond what is expected from their age group.

Science

Science doesn’t have to be difficult! Let our expert tutors help your child with their scientific understanding and cultivate a love for Science. Whether your child needs help with basic concepts or specific support towards GCSE or A-level Sciences, we can assist and help them to succeed.

The New Grade 9-1 GCSEs Explained

New GCSE Maths and English courses started September 2015, and other subjects (including GCSE Science) will be examined Summer 2018.

The new courses are more challenging than ever, with all the exams set at the end of Year 11. There’s even a new ‘9-1’ grading system, where Grade 9 will be reserved for the very top tier of students.

A bit more detail

  • The first new exams for GCSE Maths and English will be in summer 2017. The new GCSE Science exams will start in summer 2018.
  • There’s no Foundation Level in the new English GCSEs — students of all abilities will take the same exams.
  • There are fewer course options in the new Science GCSEs. Most students will either take the new Combined Science course (worth two GCSEs) or three separate GCSEs in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
  • Coursework and practical assessments play a much smaller part in the new GCSE courses — which means most of the marks are won or lost in the exams at the end of Year 11. No pressure.
