What is the online summer school Olympics?

To help you get ready for the school year ahead, we are running a 2-week summer school for GCSE students with a fun twist. Themed around the 2021 Olympics, it’s an exciting and engaging way to learn. 

The activity schedule includes the GCSE core subject areas – Maths, English and Science – with the addition of extracurricular activities related to countries participating in the Olympics.

A lesson will be released each day, meaning that by the end of the 2 weeks, students will have completed a wide range of lessons to enhance their learning in preparation for September. 

The 2-week GCSE summer school includes:

  • A comprehensive summer workbook

  • 5 webinars with our teachers covering key topics within the core subjects

  • Access to the whole Your Favourite Teacher platform (over 500 English, Maths and Science lessons)

  • End of term form time resources

  • Reports with quiz scores and lesson completions

  • Rewards and prizes to be won

How it will prepare students for the school year ahead

The academic summer holidays last around 6 weeks, and with such a long break from learning, it can be tricky to get students back into the swing of things come September. Whilst the holidays are a well deserved break for both Year 9 and Year 10 students, it can be very beneficial for them to brush up on learning with online summer courses, especially in the crucial GCSE years.

Summer school students:

  • Students in Year 9
    Most Year 9 students will begin their GCSE learning in September, when they will become Year 10s. Crossing the bridge from KS3 to KS4 might seem daunting, but with our online summer school Olympics, they can get ahead and feel confident to take GCSE topics. All activities are suitable for Year 9 pupils, so it is the perfect opportunity to prepare them for those all important GCSE years!

  • Students in Year 10
    Year 10 students will have just completed their first year of GCSE learning, along with some mock exams at the end of the year. Our online summer school programme is also perfect for students at this stage, as going back over topics is only going to make revision easier when Year 11 approaches.

Keeping track of progress

Tracking students’ progress is important to know where they are at with their learning. As part of our online summer school programme, you will also get access to impact reports whilst completing the programme that recognise students’ efforts and achievements.
