Easter Revision Course 2021
How does revision and exams look for the class of 21′ you may be asking….?
Well, following a year of unprecedented times surrounding Covid-19, our popular Easter Revision Course at Dean Close will be running again in 2021.
It has now been announced that in England, public Examinations are set to go ahead for both A Level and GCSE. When the country went into a National Lockdown back in March 2020, all school sites were shut down and we moved to home-schooling and learning became virtual. Learning at a distance would have been experienced in a variety of ways for students but whatever their story, students need to be equipped & ready to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding .
We will be here to support your son/daughter in their studies with our Easter Revision Course, which is taking place on the 12th – 16th April 2021.
The course is open for A Level and GCSE students and as always, residential and non-residential places are available. We have given the course a slight refresh this year and in addition and will be offering overseas students an online delivery of the course. Understanding that students may feel the need to ensure that they are up to speed as in as many of their subjects as possible, we are also altering the course this year to offer 4 subjects at GCSE and Two at A Level.
It is our hope that all study will take place in the classroom, taking into consideration any social distancing measures in place at the time.
