What is Headstart?
Our Headstart Courses are designed to prepare students for their upcoming year of learning, by teaching them 30-40% of the course over summer. Students are then provided with a test at the end of the course, to consolidate their learning. After which tutors will provide further guidance to get them in the best position possible for the new school year. Headstart courses are offered for Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and soon English.
Track Progress – After the 20 hours of teaching, students will have an additional hour of tutoring to go through an at-home exam that they are set at the end of the course.
Easily Manageable – With only 4 hours teaching per week, student’s have plenty of time off and should feel less pressured in the new academic year.
Ensure Success – The difficulty in progressing from Nat 5 to Higher is regularly menioned by students. Our Headstart courses ensure students are prepared for the level of work required to have success at Nat 5/Higher.
Be Prepared – Course notes, worksheets and practice papers are all provided.
Stay ahead – If your child wants to continue with their tutor, they will be eligible for 1 free lesson at the beginning of the new academic year.
