Our Harrow tuition centre has been successfully running this course since 2004. Over the course of the last 16 years we have assisted hundreds of students to gain admission to some of the very best Grammar and Independent schools in the country.
We are very experienced in exactly understanding what preparation and practice is required to perform successfully in entrance examinations and our course covers the requirements of all the main examining boards including GL Assessment, CEM, ISEB and the London Consortium.
Course Content, Structure & Outcomes
All students commence with a comprehensive initial assessment, the results of which are shared with the parent. The assessment results are then used to structure a personal learning plan for your child.
Each child is then given a tailored learning plan ensuring that all key areas are covered, followed up by individual support to ensure personal progress is being made.
Areas covered will include the following, comprehension work, spelling, vocabulary building, grammar, punctuation, word work, writing skills, mental arithmetic, problem solving and reasoning skills.
In addition to focussing on the core skills within each topic area students will also be supported to build upon higher level skills such as reading between the lines, working under timed pressure and building logic-based skills to help them with problem solving.
Your child will also be encouraged to read a wide range of material regularly to develop good reading and enhanced vocabulary skills.
Attendance at the centre is weekly and as part of the course all students benefit from personal tutoring support and tailored weekly homework is given to each child to reinforce their learning.
In addition to giving your child an excellent foundation for their 11 plus examinations, the course is also specifically designed to improve your child’s confidence and for them to accelerate their learning and excel at school.
Classwork and homework is marked by us with individual feedback given. All scores are tracked with additional support given in areas of additional need where required.
We also recognise that some children may at times benefit from slightly more homework and others slightly less, so there is flexibility in the sessions to adjust homework levels.
We will also always be on hand to assist you with any additional help and ongoing support that you may require and are happy to advise on additional learning materials to help with your preparations.
