YEAR 7-9 MATHS TUTORING PROGRAMMES
Gaps from KS2 and the introduction of more complex concepts can make the transition to secondary school a challenge for some students.
But with so many plates to spin, itβs not always easy for teachers to give each of these pupils the personalised support they need.
Help your Year 7-9 students catch up more quickly with personalised one to one tutoring from specialist KS3 maths tutors.
“Without a doubt our KS3 students are enjoying it. When we’ve had absences, I’ve been able to replace them because word is getting out through their peers that the programme is fantastic. I’ve seen nothing but great things from Third Space Learning, and knowing it’s in place for the students joining us in September who will be well below where they should be is so helpful.”
Darren Madourie, Maths Teacher
Holte School, Birmingham
