GCSE Mandarin Chinese Study Groups
An off-timetable programme aimed at aspiring young linguists who want to gain a GCSE in Mandarin Chinese. The programme runs for 3 years and is usually started in year 8 or 9. A trip to Beijing is included as an integral part of the tuition, which takes place in small groups local to you.
“This exciting new initiative has been designed with our pupils in mind and offers a much-needed opportunity for them to gain a GCSE in this important language.” – Silas Edmonds, Head of Surbiton High School Seniors
The period after exams is a great time to introduce students to a new language and vibrant culture. Give them some direction and real value by including Mandarin Chinese as an enrichment programme.
“[The teacher] did a really good job with our Year 8s on Monday and his sessions were enjoyed by all. He made a very positive impression on the pupils and they felt they had really achieved a great deal by the time his sessions had finished. Thank you for a good day.” Head of Learning, Prior Park School, June 15
