For the parents out there. (and grandparents/siblings who I know may be providing support from afar)

Basically just a corner of the internet for you to come and sit in the corner and cry your eyes out for the next 3 months.....

I'm a licensed tutor so if you're looking for specific answers or online resources don't hesitate to get in touch. You may find some luck using Salamanders or even just using general brainteasers!

I've set my tutoring prices to the lowest band possible for consultations, which includes workspace, livechat and everything in between and can send over my profile. (the price comes from the use of the workspace, irritatingly)

I did a lot of work for this site a few years back - it's a scientific resource site, mainly aimed at undergrads, but some of the stuff might be useful for A level students, and there is a section for younger kids:

What an absolutely brilliant and thoughtful post
I’m a good few decades and was getting fed up of my colouring in book

An excellent site for books, you can get free access at the moment if refer by your educator.


Similar to getepic but not as good IMO


Good for generating maths questions at random, maybe for a quick warm up.


Good for fun maths games that fit in with the curriculum

Twinkl also have a free offer running for the period of the closures.

I’ll be trying to get mine away from screens and outside in the fresh air.
aren’t we all. But if people have to work then at least there are resources to use. The schools can’t provide everything for each child so parents are filling the gap for once
