UK Crammer Courses


From time to time, our experienced IGCSE and A-level examiners at Dreaming Spires will run short crammer courses in addition to the longer, more detailed year-long courses that closely align with syllabi published by exam boards.

Of those year-long courses, mythology, the Homeric world, geography 2, and art history are the ones specifically teaching to a syllabus this year, while all our other courses are designed to support UK exams through a broader approach, an approach that has successfully prepared students for exams despite teaching to the subject rather than a specification only.


New CAIE English Language and English Literature Crammers 
Now Open for Registration 1st of March
(scroll down for registration form)

New arrangements in light of CAIE's decision to cancel in-person exams

At this point in the process, we're on about Plan D, but at Dreaming Spires, we are doing what we can to provide you with the exam revision that will best benefit your home-educated child. Check with your centre as to whether they will accept marked work from ourselves or if they will be providing centre-based assessments. Either way, a Dreaming Spires crammer will be extremely beneficial in preparing the student for whichever option that is being made available to them via their exam centre. Register using the form below. Places are limited.
