GCSE English language and English literature revision workshops 2023
Following positive feedback from previous pre-Covid years and in response to current demand, A-Star English will be returning to running revision workshops during the Easter holidays, from 3 to 4 April 2023. The sessions are aimed at both Years 10 and 11, with the focus on the AQA (and Edexcel GCSE) public examinations and will be held at the Community Centre.
A-Star English believe that a group learning environment creates opportunities for active learning – a proven revision method for allowing the memory to retain information. A difficulty with much group learning, however, is that attention can be less focused than in a one-to-one learning environment. The workshops overcome this with a smaller class size than school, and an intense day-long, interactive environment, which specialises in English.
Sessions will contain dynamic and focused activities which will boost A-Star English’s scheme of one-to-one private tuition. They will correspond directly with the examinations set by the AQA exam board and so prepare and familiarize students with the content and structure of their exams. They an also accommodate students sitting the Edexcel exam board, if required.
Students will be provided with a revision folder for use within the workshops. This folder will help them in their final revision weeks.

If a student is staying for both the morning and afternoon sessions, they will either need to bring a packed lunch, or visit the adjacent Starbucks. However, rest assured plenty of other light refreshments will be provided throughout the day!
Please contact A-Star English to book a place for your preferred sessions. In order to secure your place, payment must be made in advance. Each three-hour session is priced at a cost of £45. The full two day course would therefore be a cost of £180.
