After an extraordinary end to the last academic year, we are very proud to share with you a snapshot overview of the results achieved by our A level students. Having shown impressive levels of resilience and ability to adapt to ever-changing circumstances, our students acquired an impressive set of grades. Very well done!

"Avi has been a good student but over the years had plateaued in maths, and I can honestly say that Vivek has brought back that spark about maths to Avi. He enjoys it and he has improved significantly. He is doing very well in class, his grades have improved; moreover, he enjoys being there."

Although most of last year's GCSE candidates did not get a chance to sit the examinations they had prepared for, we are proud to share with you the impressive set of results awarded to our students based on their Centre Assessment Grades. These results undoubtedly reflect the fact that the students' hard work throughout the entire academic year has paid off, as students were assessed based on their mock examination grades, coursework and progress shown throughout the year.

During the half-term break, many students have enquired about additional resources and past papers they could use when revising independently. Our Resources page offers students an extensive collection of GCSE and A-Level Mathematics past papers, including mark schemes, for Edexcel, OCR, and OCR MEI exam boards. We hope you find these useful in your revision!
The papers can be accessed here:

In order encourage students to explore different writers, styles and genres, as well as help them develop a love of literature, our lead English tutor Milda has compiled a list of 12 book recommendations for each year group from Year 3 to Year 11. The books on the list range from timeless classics to recent releases. As they go through the list, students will become familiar with the work of world-famous writers and meet iconic book characters.

In this week's update, our Senior Tutor Vivek and Registrar Milda share the various activities they have pursued during the half-term holidays, encouraging students to explore their own interests and combine learning with relaxation. Milda also introduces our new Year 4 Mathematics lessons that will launch after the half-term break due to an increase in demand and reminds parents about the opportunity to use the full year payment discount (available until the 1st of November). Finally, the updated lesson schedule for the Spring Term will be published later this week, which will be of interest to those looking to join our Year 3 Mathematics and English lessons as well as our Year 4 and 5 Reasoning lessons.
Have a lovely half-term and week look forward to seeing you next week!

'I have seen massive changes in her attitude to maths - she has gone leaps and bounds in confidence when approaching papers. She has learnt topics before she’s had to learn them at school, or has just had subjects reconfirmed for her during her tutoring at Trefoil. As a parent, I am very happy that we've enjoyed coming to lessons at Trefoil Tutors and we are looking to continue – especially as we have seen such improvement!'
