A Level Homeschooling
Keystone can offer homeschooling support to children in Years 12 & 13 whilst they approach their A Level exams. We have good relationships with a number of exam centres in London and would be delighted to make these introductions for you. We can also advise on other locations for sitting exams.
"We are very pleased to tell you that my son got two As, so he will be off to his first choice university, Bristol. Thanks very much for your support over this past academic year and of course for lining our son up with such good teachers!"
A Level Homeschooled Student
Students being homeschooled through their A Levels require a more intense weekly timetable where we recommend four hours of learning per week for each core subject and two to three hours for the other subjects. Independent work is also set, as well as regular assessments to ensure the student is on track.
If students join us mid-way through their A Level studies we can ensure a smooth handover from their previous learning centre, with the tutors being briefed on the exam board and set texts to ensure no time is wasted in these key years. We also have a University Consultancy support programme at Keystone so can help advise students on their next steps following their A Levels.
"In my experience, homeschooling allows students to explore in more depth and at greater leisure topics that they might never encounter at school in a variety of subjects, whether relating shape and space in Maths to one former student's love of architecture and engineering or expanding knowledge in history or the classics into a particular era. Over the long term, this can be wonderful for a student's development but even in the short term as a stop-gap between schools, for example, it can give a student a chance they might not get again until university to pursue different interests away from the curriculum while learning the same core skills."
