A level Economics Easter Revision

Ashbourne’s Economics Easter Revision courses run in either morning or afternoon sessions over five day and are taught by Brendan Casey and John Curran. John taught degree-level Economics for 35 years before joining the college. Brendan graduated from London School of Economics, trained as an accountant and worked in the city before joining Ashbourne. He has run a highly successful Economics department at the college for many years. Students will benefit from John and Brendan’s extensive experience as well as from the small group size and individual attention, a key feature of the Easter Revision programme at Ashbourne.

Why Choose Ashbourne College A level Easter revision courses?
My time at Ashbourne was incredible! I made lifelong friendships and learnt how to be independent and manage my time well. For me, Ashbourne was a stepping stone between school and university where I was treated as an adult but was still given the guidance I needed to achieve the results that I wanted to get. During my time there I learnt so much, not just about my subjects, but about myself. I came to Ashbourne with a dream to study Music at university and, I am unbelievably grateful that, with the help of the teachers at Ashbourne, I am now a second year Music student at Royal Holloway University of London, my first choice. I have genuinely never been happier.
