Only posh kids need apply
I showed this to my Sixth Formers and asked if they would consider going to a revision class like this (assuming they could afford it, which given the quality of their mobile phones, they probably could). Unanimously they said no, because everyone looked like a snob, and dressed funny. I was taken with the fact that
(a) the tutor appears to be Peter Sellars, and
(b) the revision seems to consist of Peter holding up bits of a chemistry set and talking.
Where's the interactive activities? Where, pray tell, are the pads of lined paper out of which students take such an age trying rip the pages neatly?
Anyway, no disrespect to the Hampstead Easter School, but I don't think we're in your target market. Sorry.
Update August 2008: some fab photos from their website:
