About Myddelton College:

Myddelton College, one of the fastest growing independent schools in the UK has teamed up with leading educational specialists to ensure that your child is fully equipped to enter into the next phase of their studies. 

Myddelton College is a co-educational independent boarding school located in Denbigh, North Wales. At Myddelton, there is a focus on 21st Century Learning, as well as engaging specialist programmes such as our ‘Learning Through The Outdoors’ programme, which encourages our students to learn and apply knowledge beyond the classroom. 

Our Approach:

All children progress at different speeds and meet different hurdles in their learning, they need bespoke learning plans and individual support. Our two week programme intends to support learning lost as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. We will cover some of the hardest topics in each subject, which will directly impact students understanding of the subject as a whole. 

By using a combination of video link and interactive software, the teacher will provide live tuition. The programme consists of 4 hours per subject, per level spread across 2 weeks, covering two of the hardest topics. Practice is the key to success, the greater the variety of examples the child has encountered and mastered, the less likely they are to meet unfamiliar situations.

Course Overview:

For all A Level and GCSE subjects, the syllabus is now prescribed in detail by the Department for Education. The lessons will cover two topics per subject. Different examination boards split the materials between examination papers in different ways.
