UNDERSTANDING YOUR SCHOOL EXAM
…because better grades create opportunities for life.
Undertaking exams from home can be a daunting experience. Making sure that your child is on target to achieve his or her life goals is an overwhelming responsibility, and without the support of a school many parents feel confused as to how they can measure their child’s progress.
OUR BOARD OF ADVISORS
In order to continually meet the developing needs of schools, students and home educating pupils, MMP has brought together a team of expert advisors, all of whom play a role in offering a vast, collective experience of primary, secondary, state, independent and international education.
- Two of our advisors are Ofsted Inspectors
- Two have served Headships at leading international schools in Europe and the Middle East.
- Two have transformed their schools from under special measures to Outstanding Ofsted reports.
- Two have served as Heads at three leading British public schools.
