THE EXEMPLAR PROGRAMME

Designed to be built around each child’s specific strengths and weaknesses.

Exemplar is available in maths, English and reading for children between the ages of 4 and 17 years old, based on their current strengths and weaknesses.

Exemplar mathematics and English programmes have been fully aligned to the English National Curriculum.

Exemplar covers work required by students in Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2, Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. Whatever level your children are working at, you can rest assured that Exemplar will complement and work hand-in-hand with their current schoolwork.

Additionally, there is a range of GCSE revision courses for each of the major Examination Boards (AQA, Edexcel OCR and WJEC), depending on what your student is studying.

For those schools that offer the International Baccalaureate or Cambridge International Examinations curricula, these are also available within Exemplar as part of its standard curriculum library.
