What have teachers said about the free UK Schools Offer so far?
“The courses supported our students by enabling them to learn independently whilst enhancing their writing and research skills. We noticed a difference in our Year Eleven’s writing skills and the ability of our Year Thirteens to conduct research, especially in subjects such as sociology, psychology and history.“Perry Lynch, Assistant Headteacher, St Edward's Academy, Romford
“The year group who were given the courses during lockdown, we’ve noticed that a number of them, a greater number actually, are preparing applications to more competitive universities, including three to Oxbridge.“Paul McMenamin, Deputy Headteacher, Bellerive FCJ Catholic College, Liverpool
“Many of our students felt pretty lost at sea when exams were cancelled, and this was an opportunity and a chance for them to work productively towards a valued qualification. The courses are exactly the skills our students needed, for future study and their careers.”Ben Edwards, Teacher, The Cotswold School, Cheltenham
