Key Stage 3 - Years 7 to 9
At Key Stage 3, many children may be struggling to adapt to a new school, new classmates and new subjects. Before children get underway with the GCSE syllabus at Key Stage 4, most parents will want to ensure the necessary foundations for GCSE success are in place.
Pressure-free tutoring at Key Stage 3 can help boost confidence and progress if children are having difficulties, and help ensure secondary school is an enjoyable experience with positive outcomes. At 3Rs Tuition, we have experienced English, maths and science tutors. We also offer tuition in history, geography and many other subjects.
During the pre-teens and early teens, we understand the stresses and anxieties many children feel. Our tutors aim to provide pressure-free, patient tuition at a pace set by the pupil. Through enjoyable tuition, our KS3 tutors will help your child develop the skills and understanding that will set them up for success in their GCSEs and beyond.
English tutors or maths tutors are most in demand at this stage, as extra support for literacy or numeracy skills at this stage can give make a tremendous difference.
Key stage 3/4 – Progress 8
The way each child’s progress is to be measured is changing. A new system called Progress 8 is being introduced. Progress 8 aims to capture the progress a pupil makes from the end of primary school to the end of secondary school. It is a type of value added measure, which means that pupils’ results are compared to the actual achievements of other pupils with the same prior attainment. Schools do not have to share this information with parents although in practise, most will.
