Birmingham - A Level, GCSE, Retakes & Transfers at the end of Year 12
At MPW, we offer the following courses:
- A level, taken over one or two years
- Retakes, for both A level and GCSE
- Transfers at the end of Year 12
- Easter Revision
- Supplementary Tuition, 1:1 twilight, Saturday morning or holiday sessions for students at other schools.
For our term-time courses, there is a maximum of nine students in each class. The small class sizes ensure each student receives the individual attention he or she needs. A high proportion of our subject tutors are qualified to Masters or Doctorate level and many are examiners for the A level and GCSE subjects that they teach.
In class, great emphasis is placed on the demands of the specification and on examination technique. We measure progress and performance by regularly testing via Timed Assignments and mock examinations. A student’s academic progress is closely monitored by a Personal Tutor who provides support and advice throughout the academic year through individual tutorial meetings, regular written reports to parents and meetings with parents and/or subject tutors whenever necessary.
The College also provides a programme of support for students with learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, working-memory problems and processing speed problems. Each student can receive weekly input and assistance from our Director of Teaching and Learning.
The highly personalised curriculum, close monitoring of students’ progress, regular assessment of students’ work and individual interventions ensure that the achievement of students throughout all phases of the college is outstanding.
