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.
Crucially for these young students, we have created a system that is as fun as it is effective. We want our students to flourish in the long-term - not just to get through an exam - and our interactive teaching methods ensure that students can go on to great success.
Many of the local private schools give extra marks for neat handwriting in the 7+ exam. If your child is having trouble with their handwriting, enter your name below to receive your own handwriting practice pack.
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 7+ and GCSE packages.
