Our 11+ Results
As proud Kent locals, we make sure that we are the absolute experts in tuition for all of the 11+ exams in the area, and we have the results to prove it:
We have an over 90% success rate in the Bexley, Kent and Medway 11+ exams. The majority of our 2015/16 students also scored over 90% in their Kent exam.
2016 students are going to: St. Olave's, Newstead Wood, Dartford Grammar and more.
This year also marks our third consecutive year of Newstead Wood passes.
Our students have gained places and been offered full scholarships to private schools such as: Eltham College, Colfe's, Bromley High, Dulwich College and Farringtons.
We were hugely disappointed when, after months of tuition at another 11+ centre, our son did not originally pass the 11+. After this, we sent our son to Kin Learning to prepare him for private school exams and a late sitting of the Medway 11+. We were so relieved when not only did Anwar pass, but he also exceeded expectations. He received several offers from private schools and also achieved a score of 568 in the 11+. 525 points were needed in order to pass so I am very pleased with the result. Thank you for the support you have provided.
Content Tailored to Individual Exams
Our founding team have used their many years of experience to design a wealth of materials that give our students the edge in their exams. Using the information our ex-students have given us and a study of the exam content, we have been able to create a rigorous teaching system that gives your child the very best chance of success.
Many tutors take a scattergun approach to preparing for the 11+; covering any and all topics and requiring students to work from dawn to dusk. Sadly, even after all these hours of work, many students will still fail to get in to the school of their choice as they haven’t focused on the right topics in sufficient depth. By contrast, we have produced our own materials (available only to our customers) that are built entirely around the local exams and also write our own mock tests. It is this targeted approach that helps our students to excel year after year.
Whilst our approach certainly requires hard work, we take a long-term, targeted view that means our students are thoroughly prepared - but not overworked - by the time they reach their exam.
Supporting Home Learning
Passing any exam requires consistent learning throughout the week to support the great teaching that happens in our sessions. In order make this learning as easy as possible, we provide a wide range of home support to both students and their parents including: creating study schedules, providing app recommendations, teaching revision techniques and always giving personalised homework.
We know that some parents are happy to work with their children at home whilst some parents prefer not to. For this reason, our team are happy to work alongside parents to establish the level of work you wish to do at home so that we can tailor lessons accordingly. This way, we can make the most of your child’s lesson and the money that you spend.
Throughout the exam preparation process, we will also make sure to provide you with consistent feedback so that you can manage your expectations and your child’s. By setting realistic targets for all of our students, we can make sure that they are focusing on the right material for the right exam.
Mixing Group and 1-to-1 Tuition
We believe that a combination of groups and 1-to-1 lessons are the best way to prepare for an exam. This is why we supplement our group sessions with 1-to-1 classes when necessary.
The majority of our teaching is done in groups as this environment encourages our students to push themselves. Talented children have the potential to become complacent at school as they are often at the top of their class. Working with other highly intelligent children from across the borough means they gain a full understanding of the level they need to work at. We find this environment is particularly powerful for boys as it brings out their competitive nature and inspires them to knuckle down.
For many students, not only does the group work boost their morale (which is crucial in the run-up to the exam), but it also gives them the opportunity to learn new techniques from other students.
However, there are occasions when children require 1-to-1 teaching in order to tackle particular topics in more depth and answer specific questions. To accommodate this, we provide 1-to-1 sessions as part of our 11+ packages.
