Testing times ahead!


Hello there.

I hope that you enjoyed these brainteasers. I don’t know about you, but I’m grateful that I’m not sitting exams right now.

How did you get on?

Have you ever thought about helping a young person with their revision? If you don’t already and feel you have the time and temperament to help a student in secondary education, why not get in touch with Action Tutoring. They are always looking for volunteer tutors to support young people. It is a rewarding experience.

Well, thanks for reading.

Take care,
