Students are likely to encounter new kinds of texts – hybrids of visual, spoken and written, featuring ethical and global dilemmas, challenging and unpredictable plots. They will be evaluating, comparing and composing increasingly complex writing and performance. It’s a great chance for them to consider their own position in the world as a creator and responder. Cluey has an ever-expanding bank of resources as well as units ready to help with essays, oral presentations, creative and persuasive writing – plus grammar and spelling to give that final polish.

“Cluey Learning provided a much-needed boost to our child's education. Suddenly faced with the demands of year 11 English, our child went from near top of the class to near bottom in the space of a term. Her Cluey Learning tutor helped give her the confidence and concepts she was missing. If your child is struggling, even slightly, I recommend Cluey Learning. Their one-on-one classes and friendly, intelligent tutors will be of great assistance to giving your child the boost they need.”
