Unlike the GCSE Maths which has both Foundation and Higher Tier topics, English GCSE Revision has one set of topics. When completing the Teacher Assessment more rigorous expectations are applied to students wanting to attain a higher tier mark.

Unlike a school setting, at LearningClubs, we personalise instruction teaching those topics which your child needs most to increase their teacher assessment grade. We take time to interview your child and mark the work they have submitted. Finally, the talented tutor will recommend which of the GCSE English Language Revision courses, Foundation or Higher Tier, best suits your child at this time.

Chat with Carol

Is your child confused which course they are best suited for Foundation or Higher Tier?

Next Step: Once registered, I will take your child through a Guided English Survey. They will complete a short creative story and provide a written response to a text. The talented tutor will mark the submissions and recommend whether your child is best suited for success by attending the Foundation or Higher English Language course.


  • Have a maximum of 6 students

  • Cover topics that are chosen by the student prior to the course commencement. We start with an interview. The student is then asked to write a short story and to analyse a poem. By identifying what the student has already mastered will narrow down the concepts remaining to be learnt.  To further enhance the course design the student is invited to present a recent mock exam and teacher recommendations.

  • Conducted online to ensure continuity

  • Involve rapid revision of both core and option topics

  • Focus on mastery of identified concepts, recall and past paper practice

  • Address individual concerns

  • Build topic confidence and self-confidence

LearningClubs' focused courses ensure that students return to their schools with greater subject knowledge and self-confidence

We were beyond over the moon with his Grade 8 in Maths, what a turnaround and all thanks to your brilliant company. The devil is always in the detail and the time you spent establishing where his gaps were in his knowledge, ensuring that these were addressed and tested before moving on to a new level really helped and even though he had to go back to basics he was never made to feel anything other than encouraged.


Encouraged to ask questions, encouraged to work hard, encouraged he could achieve, this combined with great teaching and his hard work all helped him obtain a grade he never ever thought possible (nor did we) he has put to bed his nemesis subject at last.


I have recommended you to so many people already, we will continue to fully endorse all you do.


A thrilled and very proud mum!


I think it’s Sam’s last ever maths with you tomorrow!  We just want to thank you both for the help over the past 2 years! Sam is full of praise and says without question she has helped her more than the teacher at school. I am so glad that we came along to you. Looking back I can remember Sam asking why she has to go to extra maths when none of her friends do!  Seeing her confidence grow has been wonderful and never once has she complained about having to go. We are thrilled with her progress.
