Summer School Courses: Get Ahead for September

Summer School Courses: Get Ahead for September

The Community Schools will be delivering two types of tuition this summer to support students in returning to school in September. Our Get Ahead for September courses include face to face tutoring sessions at ASK House, Bury St Edmunds, and our Home Tutoring Online through our digital classrooms.

Both these courses are designed to help students fill any knowledge gaps and give them a firm foundation for starting their next academic year. Tutoring sessions will cover the key topics that students need to know going forward and address any areas that cause students difficulty. Each student is tutored as an individual.

Before the start of the course there will be a free introductory online session with the tutor to determine which topics and skills the student would like to cover.

Get Ahead for September – Face to Face Courses

This is a five day course, running Monday to Friday, with tutoring available for all year groups from Key Stage 2 to A Level. In total, students will receive 6 ¼ hours of tutoring.

  • Students will attend daily sessions at ASK House, our Bury St Edmunds Learning Centre
  • Each day students will receive a 75 minute shared session with the tutor (maximum of 4 students in a group)
