There is absolutely no doubt that until this academic year, there had been a quite efinite difference in the educational examination attainment of boys to the girls coming out of most state provided schools. This is generally in the areas of reading and English language skills, humanities and even the sciences. This rather worrying scenario has in fact started to change – possibly with the additional effort being put in at the sharp end – in the way schools attract and deliver the message to boys throughout their upper school years. When you look at the broader schemes offered in the private, fee paying sector, there is no difference in pupil attainment. Today all students who stuggle at any stage can be helped with online education back up – schools have this facility and can make parts available to classes. The benefit of learning in a quiet environent without peer pressure is immeasurable.
