Weekly Homework Programme

No hidden costs – teaching, marking and all required materials are included in the original price. Simple pricing structure, easy to understand, with a 6-week fee, payments are spread over the course duration to make it manageable for all families. Students can join the groups at any time – providing there are spaces. Brain Train resource centre is also available to all pupils with a 10% discount.

Group tuition for Maths and GSCE applicants has proved itself to be beneficial for all students. The group is a safe, nurturing environment, ideal for pupils to gauge the level of competition, giving them an understanding of the standards expected, thus encouraging them to improve their skills. Students feel they are part of a team, and not isolated which happens with one to one tuition.

Our courses provide everything that you and your child will need when preparing for their GSCE Maths exam.
