We inspire through language

In years 10 and 11, students face the first set of real exams in their educational lives: GCSEs. As a compulsory subject, English literature and language is taken by thousands of students every year and students will be tested on important reading, writing and analytical skills. However not all students manage to immediately set off on the right foot. Misunderstanding texts, leaving past papers to the last minute or struggling to structure a revision timetable can lead to increasing panic as the exam dates loom closer.


Our highly qualified tutors aim to turn this journey into a positive one by helping students discover their passion for literature and the English language, thereby setting students on the path to exam success.
