A message from the Trustees

The Trustees at BEST believe it is important that all of our families are offered quality teaching from dedicated and fully qualified tutors, all of whom have achieved at least a BA/BSC (Hons) or MA/MS in the subjects they teach.

Our tutors are all DBS checked and come with excellent references.

In 2017, our pass rate in English (A* to C) was 98%.

However, at BEST, we place a great deal of emphasis on learning for pleasure and we want all of our students to benefit from exciting lessons which enthuse young people of all abilities and which take into account any specific educational needs. Pupils are taught in small groups and tutors incorporate a variety of teaching methods into their lessons to ensure the learning outcomes of all students in the group are met.

Although GCSE exams are primarily designed to be taught over a two year period, our experienced tutors have expertly structured their courses so that students can sit exams after one year. However, pupils are also welcome to take the course over two years and families are free to decide which option fits best.
