Maximising attainment for year 11 foundation and higher pupils.

Outcomes in year 11 have always been a key focus for schools, and the move to linear exams places even more weight on ensuring that every cohort is ‘exam ready’.

Inevitably, some late interventions are needed for year 11 pupils, particularly in the term before Easter. Tute offers affordable and measurable revision programmes that can improve outcomes by a grade or more.

Find out how we have worked successfully with Harlington Upper School to help deliver some outstanding results in maths and English.

 “In comparison to students not attending the Tute revision sessions, students in attendance saw their grades improved, on average, by an additional 1.03 of a grade”

The revision programme. 

Tute’s purpose was to work with students in two subject areas; English literature and maths, with a number of groups for varying reasons.  In English Literature, Tute worked with two cohorts of Year 11 students to provide GCSE exam revision; both high achieving G&T groups.  In maths, Tute supported a further two Year 11 revision groups; the first a higher tier cohort and the second, a foundation group.  In all cases, the aim was to raise attainment. 

In English, Learning Programmes for both groups were focused on AQA GCSE English literature: power and conflict poetry (AQA Anthology), unseen poetry, unseen poetry comparison and A Christmas Carol.

In maths, both the foundation tier and higher tier students were preparing for the EdExcel 1MA1 component. Using school data specific topic foci were identified and a scheme of work put into place to bridge these gaps in learning.

Real teachers, real engagement 

Students who are not engaged or stretched by their lessons in the classroom – and those who must learn away from the classroom, may not make sufficient progress with traditional online resources.


Tute is different. Our faculty of qualified, experienced teachers deliver high quality lessons, live online via the innovative Tute Learning Cloud platform.

 

They work closely with your teachers to plan the
additional support that will be right for the learning needs of each student.

"It’s an online programme that helps children learn. You go online and can book a session and really learn a lot. I liked the fact it was online and I (my parents) didn’t have to drive me to a Tuition Centre."

 

"If you learn something in class and don't understand it, you can go back to her [your Tute teacher] and tell her and she'll help you with it."
