The London School of Economics
Park View School has just finished its 4th consecutive year of the London School of Economics tutoring programme. The ten week LSE tutoring programme consists of undergraduates at LSE coming in and working, mentoring and tutoring with students from Park View in specific subjects after school. This year ten percent of Year 9 students were tutored in high level Mathematics and activities to promote problem solving skills. The Mathematics and skills students were being tutored in will be needed for future Maths GCSE papers.
Year 9 Deputy and LSE co-ordinator Mr Ernest said. It has been another great year working with the LSE and its tutors who were fantastic. The students did find the level of work more testing than previous years, however with the help from the LSE tutors they all managed to find their way in the end. This level of work will help the students with their GCSE’s in the future, also the knowledge they have gained during the programme will also be used and shared in the classroom, peer mentoring and future study groups.
For next year’s programme Park View students will continue with more high level Mathematics as well as GCSE options in Science, Physics, languages, and business.
