Easter Revision A level subjects

Ashbourne has been running a comprehensive programme of Easter Revision courses for more than thirty years. We offer a wide selection of subjects at A level taught by Ashbourne teachers. Students will benefit from their excellent teaching style, experience and attention to the needs of individual students, which is a key feature of the Easter Revision programme at the college.

Courses run over five days in either morning (10am – 1pm) or afternoon (2 – 5pm) sessions. A level Maths modules are offered as individual courses and A level Politics is a full-day courses that run in both morning and afternoon sessions. We also offer individual tuition.

I found the course really interesting and very useful. I especially liked the course packs, they were really practical, and I feel a lot more prepared for my exams now.
