We are delighted to be able to offer our computer science tutoring online alongside other subjects in our series of Masterclass courses this year. Each masterclass covers a particular topic within the syllabus allowing students to make real progress.
What is a masterclass?
Aimed at helping all students make progress with a particular topic, masterclasses include a variety of learning tools to help students fully understand the what and why of each topic. Every masterclass is developed by a subject specialist and is supported by a live online class where students are encouraged to fully participate and ask questions. We do understand that not all students want to engage live so our pre-prepared resources include everything needed to cover the topic.
Each masterclass includes:
- a pre-recorded video
- practice tasks to help with revision
- exam-style questions
- an optional live group lesson with a qualified tutor
Resources are released 7 days before the live masterclass to allow students to independently prepare for the class.
Please Note: each live session is on a fixed date with a qualified tutor. If the date of the live session is in the past, then you will not be able to attend this session, but all other resources will be available – live sessions are not recorded for safeguarding purposes.
Our Computer Science Masterclasses are written and run by our founder, Holly Billinghurst. She is a qualified Computer Science Master Teacher with over a decade of teaching experience. In addition to over 2000 hours of tuition, she has also provided training and resources for the National Centre for Computing Education & BBC Bitesize.
Once purchased, resources are available in the “My Courses” section of your account.

Purchase Individual Recorded Classes
All course materials are available to students for 6 months following the live lesson or enrolment date (whichever is later) but will be repeated each academic year with new content. Where the date of the live lesson has passed, students will still be able to access the recorded class & materials.
