Birmingham – A Level, GCSE Courses, Retakes and Transfers at the end of Year 12
At MPW we offer the following courses for full-time students:
- A level, taken over one or two years
- Retakes, for both A level and GCSE
- Transfers at the end of Year 12
For students at other schools and colleges, we offer:
- 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.
The College also provides a programme of support for our full-time 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.
