Courses and dates in Tonbridge School

Our Christmas courses at Tonbridge School and Epsom College offer students the chance to address any weaknesses they might perceive they have well in advance of the final examinations.

Our Christmas Revision Courses are particularly popular with Upper Sixth students, who wish to take advantage of the Winter break, in order to acquire the knowledge and skills they need to enhance their performance in their chosen A level subjects, well ahead of their terminal examinations in the Summer period.
 
Indeed, studying a course at Christmas also enables students to prepare adequately for their Lower Sixth examinations; in this way stress is kept to a minimum in the knowledge that any concerns are being addressed in good time.
 
Our Christmas courses also offer many IGCSE/GCSE students a chance to fill any existing gaps that might exist in their knowledge, so that a better performance is achieved in their mock examinations, which are traditionally held in many schools just after the New Year.
 
Students who attend at Xmas may focus more on acquiring knowledge and addressing any concerns with subject content rather than aiming specifically at practising past papers and perfecting exam technique.

The new GCSEs are now much more challenging than they used to be, only a couple of years ago, and therefore acquiring the necessary skills much earlier on has never been more important. Indeed, some universities may find themselves in the unenviable position of having to use final GCSE grades as their only measurable way of gauging a student's ability, before deciding to offer a place.

Please look at the left menu for the list of subjects which are available and/or please phone us for advice. 

Some dates may still be subject to change and the courses will be held remotely if necessary and will be capped at 6 students per subject.
At present educational establishments in Kent are still allowed to run courses in person in a Tier 3 Covid lockdown.
