If your child needs help to prepare for GCSE Maths or English coursework or exams, the Kip McGrath Education Centre in Lisburn is here to help. After an initial assessment we can establish any areas of concern within a topic and create an individual education programme designed to address any problems.
How we teach GCSE Maths?
In today’s world it is necessary for most occupations and further education courses to gain at least a “C” grade at GCSE Maths. At Kip McGrath we aim to pinpoint a student’s areas of weakness and bring them to a level that enables success at the test.
For those students who are doing either foundation or the higher tier, a thorough grasp of topics covered in the curriculum is required to achieve their best grade and a knowledge of how these topics relate to each other.
Because we work to the individual needs of the students, we can establish why a student fails to grasp a topic and correct any mistakes to ensure the student now has all the background needed to understand.
Our combination of targeted reinforcement of mathematical facts and past paper practice will ensure your child is ready for the test.
Our GCSE Maths service includes:
- Free assessment
- Targeted programme of study
- Past paper practice including CEA, AQA and Edexcel
How we teach GCSE English
Understanding the content of written text and being able to extract information or data from it is a very important skill. Achieving a good result in GCSE English can be surprisingly difficult. Unlike other subjects, there are few facts. Rather, GCSE English is almost entirely focussed on acquiring skills – principally reading and writing.
At Kip McGrath we give students the confidence to write an essay with fluency and structure, developing their comments and observations appropriately for an examiner.
We concentrate on improving comprehension, spelling, grammar and essay writing skills to produce a well rounded student, ready for the exams.
As the students approach their exams they are able to work through past papers under exam conditions, which are marked with the examination board’s criteria in mind.
Our GCSE English service includes:
- Free assessment
- Essay writing
- Past paper practice

“Just to say thank you for your input in helping Rachel achieve an ‘A’ in her GCSE English. We were delighted and Rachel has got into college to study for A-Levels.”
Richard was delighted to get an A* in GCSE Maths and an A in Ad Maths. He had been worried he wouldn’t get the A he was striving for but with Trevor’s help he has exceeded everyone’s expectations!
Ross had been panicking that he wouldn’t reach the standard required to pass his GCSE Maths and was confused on many aspects of the exam curriculum. However, we were so pleased to hear that he got a very well deserved B!!
We also had the great news that Helen received an A in her GCSE Maths. She also credited her A in GCSE Physics on the help she got with mathematical concepts at Kip McGrath. Well done Helen!
