KS3

Secondary is from Year 7 to Year 9 and we believe thus us a vital stage in a student’s studying life as they are opted into either the foundation or higher tier of their exams. Hence First study Tuition centre equips our ks3 students with the knowledge, skills and attributes to become confident and proficient life- long learners.

We cover a range of subjects including English, Maths and Science. Our group consist of a maximum of 4 students per teacher as we believe students deserve undivided attention to attain the highest grades. We individualise our class to best suit the student’s need. In year 9 we provide 1to 1 mentoring with parents and students to help them choose which subjects they wish to take at GCSE. This allows us to discuss and understand where the student’s interest lies. Our experience tutors are also able to share their views and experiences with the students.

Our tutors provide regular homework which help students develop valuable independent learning skills. The homework tasks vary and includes; questions and research- based activities based on the topics learnt in class to check understanding and consolidate learning.
