Sometimes students need some help to study for their GCSE English exam for a variety of reasons.

These can range from classroom anxiety to some learning difficulties, or a lack of engagement with school-taught lessons.

With us, students can learn at a pace that suits them in an encouraging and supportive atmosphere.

GCSE English Revision and Preparation Classes

We understand that private one-to-one tutoring can be very expensive and out of reach for many students who really need help. Studying in a group of motivated students can be extremely rewarding and bring equally excellent results.

If you’re looking for an affordable way to get private tuition for the GCSEs you need, you’re in luck. The Berkshire School of English is offering English GCSE Revision and Preparation Classes from September 2016.

You can get started on your course right away with a small deposit, then pay the remaining fees monthly with our flexible interest-free payment plans. We also accept payments via PayPal. The course follows West Berkshire’s Academic Year Calendar so half-terms and holidays are the same. You only pay from when you join until the end of the Academic Year.

Our English preparation and revision courses follow AQA, the UK’s largest awarding body for school and college qualifications, or the internationally respected awarding body Edexcel, meaning you’ll get an extremely high, quality course.

Whether you’re looking to address gaps in your school education or prepare for college or university, we’re here to help you achieve your goals.


Year 5 and Year 6 Support lessons include:

  • Vocabulary expansion
  • Reading for comprehension and wider understanding
  • Creative writing
  • Spelling, punctuation and grammar


Studying With Us

Once you’ve enrolled, you can begin whenever suits you. The classes are very small – no more than 6 – 8 students per class. Classes are after school 4.00 – 5.30.pm

You’ll be assigned a dedicated personal tutor who will be with you from the beginning to the end of your course. They’ll answer questions about coursework, assessments and exams, and help you work through any academic problem you’re stuck with.

They’ll also give you test papers and mock exams to ensure you’re ready to pass your assessments. All your papers will be marked and given constructive feedback so you know exactly what your strengths are and what you can improve.
