South Wirral High School is using the 16 to 19 tuition fund to help mitigate the disruption to learning arising from coronavirus (COVID-19). English and Maths faculties will support students who have not achieved grade 4 or above in at least one of these subjects. All of these students are on a 16 to 19 study programme. The additional funding is being used to provide external tuition in small groups. This extra tuition is in addition to their scheduled classes in these subjects. During the first half-term all students have received an additional one hour a week of tuition in preparation for the external November exams. From January 2021, students are continuing to receive one hour additional tuition via remote learning with virtual classes created and live tuition taking place with no more than three in a group. The January 2021 cohort has been reduced due to student success in the 2020 November resit.
“The extra tuition was really helpful. I chose the topics I found difficult. Mr McLoughlin taught me easy ways of remembering how to do it”.
“Miss gave me past papers, to see what I needed to improve. It gave me more confidence and definitely helped”.
“The English tutor was really good. She was patient with me and allowed me to take my time. She gave me lots of good ideas.”
“The sessions with Kate I found very useful. It helped my confidence and reassured me. She chatted with us at the start to put us at ease. That helped us to focus on the lesson.”
