Academic Writing

Our academic writing course enables students to learn the practical skills needed to express their ideas in an eloquent, skilled and well-developed writing style. The workshops emphasise the two main skills of the most successful writers; to be precise and concise.
Students are taught to unpick the grammatical mechanics of the English language, which enables them to use more sophisticated and mature grammatical structures. The skill of successful writing is required for students to excel across a wide range of subjects, making the course both enriching and widely beneficial.
 
The small class sizes mean that students will receive plenty of one-to-one support from their tutor to address their individual weaknesses and writing style. They will also, in addition, enjoy the great benefits of reviewing and editing work along with their peers. The course is designed to aid students with writing in a number of different styles. Student's creative writing skills are challenged by 'Finish the Story' tasks, a writing format that is now commonly used in UK Independent School entrance exams. Here they will be encouraged to use figurative language and extend their vocabulary. In addition, students will receive guidance on writing to critically analyse, to persuade and to inform. The course includes tasks that help students ensure their writing is always evidenced and explained, an essential skill for the most successful writers. Simplistic language is replaced by mature and eloquent phrases, leaving each student with a unique and developed writing style.
