The weekly 45-minute webinars with LESSONing the Load are held on a Tuesday at 4.30 pm and are designed to help students develop the skills and knowledge needed for studying GCSE/IGCSE English. 

The next block of webinar sessions for GCSE/IGCSE English runs from (and includes) Tuesday 4th June to Tuesday 16th July. This is a 7-week block so payment, which is non-refundable, for these sessions totals £27.93 (7 x £3.99).

Places are limited in the webinars. To book a place on the webinar(s), please email LESSONing the Load for payment details (lessoningtheload@gmail.com).

You should receive a booking confirmation via email within 36 hours of booking your place on a webinar. This should contain the link to access your sessions.

You can see on this page a scheme of work and the proposed topics that we aim to cover each week. The scheme of work below is subject to change at any time as it is a working document so please get in touch if you'd like to know what we're currently working on.

Small Group sessions (IGCSE English Language - Edexcel A or Cambridge):

To book a place in the weekly small group sessions, please contact LESSONing the Load directly, either by Facebook or email (lessoningtheload@gmail.com). Small group sessions are priced equivalent to £10 per week and sessions are held during standard term times only. Students will be set assessments on a regular basis (usually 2-3 pieces each half-term block and one set of mock papers towards the end of their course) for the small group sessions, and if they would like these pieces marked, they must meet the deadlines given. Payments for the small group sessions are always made in half-term blocks that are non-refundable. The maximum number of students in a small group is 10, so places are limited. 


1:1 sessions:

To book a 1:1 place, please contact LESSONing the Load directly, either by Facebook or email (lessoningtheload@gmail.com). 1:1 GCSE/IGCSE English Language or Literature sessions are priced at £50 per hour, which includes the setting and marking of assessments if requested (during term time). Places are limited and LESSONing the Load operates a waiting list for 1:1.


GCSE/IGCSE English marking service

The setting and marking of assessments is not included in the price of the webinars. However, LESSONing the Load does run a separate marking service if availability allows. Payment for this service is made before the setting and marking of assessments. Students have 14 days to return their answers to be marked from the date the assessments are issued. Payment is non-refundable if they fail to do so. Answers must be emailed either in Word doc. or PDF form.

  • £10 per A4 side and £5 for every additional side of marking.
  • £25 per exam paper (e.g. Paper 1 or Paper 2).
