We offer intensive academic courses during school holidays at our Kensington based school, LSL. All of our courses are completely bespoke and individually tailored. We analyse school reports and previous grades to ensure that each programme is designed to effectively target any areas of weakness.
These courses are designed to be highly efficient and, above all, to achieve impressive results.
Students work with a variety of subject specialists throughout the course and timetables can be adapted if particular problem areas are identified during teaching.
We also allocate time every day around mealtimes for intelligent debate with other pupils and teachers. We create an atmosphere throughout the course which places academic success within a broader context with the aim of improving confidence and empowering students to succeed.
Whilst some students come to us with gaps in subject knowledge and understanding, others have problems with exam technique or short term memory.Scroll down to read more ▾
For many young people, retakes represent a very difficult time. Most come to us burdened with a sense of failure and disappointment that they are not progressing onto the next stage of their lives with their friends. Many feel that they do not have the energy or motivation to do their examinations again. We recognise that successful retakes rely on our ability to acknowledge these issues and ensure that all our students are encouraged and supported enough to feel confident and positive about the process.
Our main goal is to ensure that our retake students leave with substantially better grades. Like all of our courses, this is achieved as a result of one-to-one tuition with some of the most effective and experienced tutors in the country. We tailor each retake course around the student, taking into account all previous exam scores, school reports and areas of weakness. A student’s grades always improve once a course becomes enjoyable and relevant to a their life. We only employ tutors who are able to provide this inspiration. Our retake students leave LSL with better grades but also, perhaps more importantly, a positive attitude towards learning and academic achievement.
Some children benefit enormously from extra-curricular activities and hobbies but lack the confidence to join school clubs and societies. We run a wide range of courses, usually during the summer, aimed at giving children the initial skills needed to pursue these hobbies and activities in a school setting.Contact Lionheart ▶
