Cambridge - A Level, GCSE Courses, Retakes and Transfers at the end of Year 12
Lessons are planned skilfully to build on what pupils and sixth-form students already know. Teachers go to great lengths to ensure that pupils remember important knowledge and skills before moving on to the next stage. They regularly check pupils’ learning. Teachers use this information to provide extra help so that any gaps in understanding are closed quickly. Staff plan exceptionally well for individual learning needs.
At MPW Cambridge we offer the following courses for full-time students:
- A level, studied over one or two years
- GCSE, studied 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, for both A level and GCSE
- Support Tuition, 1:1 twilight, Saturday morning or holiday sessions for students at other schools
For our term-time courses, there is a guarantee of fewer than 10 students in each class. The small class sizes ensure that each student receives the individual attention he or she needs. The majority 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 exam technique. We measure performance in this important area by frequent testing via timed assignments and mock exams.
The college also provides a programme of mentoring and support, as well as the appropriate access arrangements, for those full-time students with additional learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, working-memory problems and processing speed issues.
