2. Course Dates


Week 1: Monday 1 April - Friday 5 April 2019 - We are no longer taking booking for this week
Week 2: Monday 8 April – Friday 12 April 2019 - We are no longer taking booking for this week
Week 3: Monday 15 April – Friday 19 April 2019 (including Good Friday)

You can book for one week, and both residential and non-residential options are available. Please choose a course from the list:



3. Subjects


We are now only taking booking for classes already running.

Please find the level of qualification you are studying (e.g. IB, A-Level or I/GCSE) and the week(s) you wish to attend. You should select 1 class from each block, and will need to pick a class from each of the 3 blocks in the same week.

If you cannot find a suitable class, or there is a particular subject/module you need help with that is not listed, please add the details at the end of the booking form, and we will check if it is possible to set it up for you. However, we have very limited availability at this stage, so cannot guarantee that we will be able to arrange this for you.

Please note, you need to ensure the class listed is exactly what you need to study (the same exam board, module and options where relevant). If you select an incorrect class, we are very unlikely to be able to change it, and refunds will not be given in these circumstances.

Please note, IB English and History, A-level English, History and Geography all attract an additional charge of £30 per class due to the specifics of the classes which mean they are likely to be one-to-one classes. Should another student join the class, then this additional fee will be refunded.
