Don’t let a poor grade in English hold your child back

Your child’s (I)GCSE English grade has never mattered more!

It’s harsh but it’s true; employers, colleges and 6th forms all require a Grade 4 / C (pass), or ideally a Grade 5 / B (strong pass) or better in English.

At Kip McGrath we employ specialist English teachers. Fully qualified, inspiring and highly experienced, they are ideally placed to help get the best results possible for your child.

Our GCSE tuition caters for various exam boards (e.g. CIE, WJEC, and Edexcel) for English Language.

Our FREE assessment will establish the needs of your child. If you choose to enrol, we will then create a personalised learning programme to help them get to where they need to be – whether this is 6th form, college or employment.

Don’t let a poor grade in English hold your child back!

Exam Technique

The Kip McGrath programme is an intensive intervention programme

Our proven methodology improves the chances of success in school. It focuses on building the foundation of English and maths concepts by using:

Face to Face teaching

We deliver our classes Face to Face in small groups to emulate the classroom setting, this helps student’s confidence to increase as well as making it more engaging for the child. During lockdown periods, we have the ability to switch online and deliver these lessons via webcam using our purpose-built and secure platform.

Computer-based learning

To ensure your child remains engaged throughout the course of the 60-minute lesson, we like to offer variety! Each child is expected to complete anywhere between 6-10 activities each lesson, of which at least 3 will be computer-based.

Homework activities

To ensure that your child stays on track with the goals we set in the assessment we set weekly homework which is marked and handed back to the student during their next lesson. Being set homework ensures your child does not experience learning loss.

All children are given a FREE initial assessment to determine what year level they’re currently working at and to identify any learning gaps.
