Physics GCSE Summer Revision Classes – Online

Our two-day online Physics course is a great way for students to prepare for going back to school. Our experienced teacher will guide students through the topics they have learnt in Year 10, refreshing their knowledge and filling in any gaps in their learning. This course is not specific to an exam board as the aim of the course is to refresh and re-learn content, not prepare for exams. Skills learnt on the course will be applied throughout Year 11. Students will go into their final year of GCSEs feeling confident, prepared and eager to learn.

Learners are supported beyond the courses through the provision of high-quality, comprehensive and original materials, including notes, guides and question booklets. These resources have been specially created to supplement the learning experience and support students beyond the course.
