Why choose this course?
Year after year, our students have won both partial and full scholarships to prestigious British schools such as Harrow School, Westminster, Eton College, City of London and Merchant Taylor's.
Students applying to grammar schools, including those in Buckinghamshire, Slough and Hertfordshire, have done exceptionally well with one student scoring 178 in his Buckinghamshire exam beating our previous high scorer by an incredible 24 points and surpassing the pass mark by an impressive 57 points.
We use tools, techniques and strategies that help students to progress quickly. This ensures that your child gets the results that they need to succeed.
The summer course is led by our founder (Miss Olubi) who has a superb track record of helping students to pass the 11+ exam and is supported by a team of handpicked tutors who are equally as skilled and experienced.
Additionally, our course provides excellent value for money because in addition to all of the support and tuition received during the course, students also benefit from 24 months access to our online revision programme (worth £288) as well as certificates and achievement prizes.
We go above and beyond and aim to do everything possible to help our students to excel.
Superb student-staff ratio. We have several experienced tutors on hand to help students with their learning. This ensures that each child receives the support, attention and resources they need to flourish.
Personalised tuition and feedback. If your child struggles with a particular topic or makes consistent mistakes, we'll provide them with personalised feedback and support so that they make quick progress.
Mock tests and practice papers. Students complete a mock assessment at the beginning and end of the course. Feedback on their performance is given to parents which ensures that you can see exactly where your child's strengths and weaknesses lie. Students also complete weekly practice papers and receive detailed feedback on their performance.
A course pre-assessment will be given to all students who enrol on the course. The pre-assessment will allow our tutors to have a clear indication of how your child is currently performing. Furthermore, the pre-assessment will enable us to provide your child with a higher level of tailored and personalised tuition.
Two free educational master classes are also provided. The master classes are designed to help students to fill their knowledge gaps and gain more confidence when answering entrance exam questions.
In addition to the above, every child who completes the course will receive the following course completion gifts:

Location: Our courses are held at St Benedict's Senior School in Ealing, London. The school is a five minute drive or 10 minute walk from Ealing Broadway station.
The fees are listed below and the deposit for all durations of attendance is the same.
We recommend that children sitting the 11+ exam in September 2017 and/or January 2018 take part for at least three weeks so that they get the vital revision and preparation that they need.
Nonetheless, if your child is unable to attend for three weeks due to their schedule or other commitments, then the 10 day course is an ideal alternative.
10 day course: £1, 135 (two weeks of attendance in either July or August)
15 day course: £1, 600 (three weeks of attendance in either July or August)
30 day course: £3,000 (six weeks of attendance in July and August)
How will the day be structured?
The course is held between 10.00 am and 3.00 pm each day. There is a 20 minute break and a 50 minute lunch break where students get the chance to take part in learning games and sporting activities such as football.
During the course, students learn through a combination of one-to-one tuition, independent learning, group study and learning games.
WHAT IS YOUR SUCCESS RATE?
Our success rate in 2013 was 100% and in 2014 and 2015 it was 97%. We're incredibly proud of the achievements of our students and our success rate reflects their hard work and dedication as well as the willingness of our team to go above and beyond.
How do I secure my child's place on the course?
Simply click here to complete and submit the registration form. Once received, a welcome pack and pre-assessment will be posted to you.
The pre-assessment should be completed in exam-like conditions, scanned and emailed to us by July 1st 2017. If we feel that your child needs any additional support or provision, we will contact you to give you detailed advice on how best to help your child before the course commences.
You can also call our course booking team on 020 8242 4270.
Can I enrol my child in both the July and August course?
Certainly. Taking part in both courses is a great way to ensure that your child is completely prepared for their 11+ exam. We highly recommend enrolling your child in the full six-week course if they have not had much support in preparation for the exam or if there scores for practice papers or mock tests are below 65%.
I'm worried about the distance. How can i commute to ealing?
We understand that the commute to Ealing can be difficult for parents who live outside of the local area or who have work commitments. If the commute is too lengthy, consider asking a friend, relative, nanny, sibling, personal driver, trusted neighbour or au pair to bring your child to the school each day. If none of these options are feasible, please contact us to request the help of one of our tutors who will be able to pick your child up from your nearest train station and drop them back each day.
HOW DO I COMMUTE TO EALING?
Central London areas such as Kensington, Marble Arch and Notting Hill are between 15-30 minutes away so it doesn't take long to travel into London. Furthermore, outside London areas such as Slough, Reading (Berkshire) and Oxford are just a train ride away.
Neighbouring areas include Harrow, Chiswick, Richmond, Hayes, Ealing, Southall, Ruislip, Perivale, Osterley, Hanwell, Hillingdon and Uxbridge.
Is it possible to sign up for just one or two weeks?
We've designed the course so that each week develops on the previous week, we therefore recommend thattake part for at least three weeks in order to see the full benefits of the course. If your child cannot attend the full course due to personal circumstances, please contact us to discuss the option of making a one or two week booking.
Please note that we have a limited number of spaces available for students who are taking part for one or two weeks. We therefore recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
Are your tutors CRB/DBS checked and qualified?
Absolutely. We vet all of our tutors and thoroughly check that they are DBS cleared. Furthermore, we specifically handpick tutors that are experienced, qualified, have stellar reputations and glowing references from parents and previous employers.
My son/daughter gets bored easily, will this course be enjoyable?
Of course. We believe that studying should be fun and we therefore incorporate engaging and interactive activities into our lessons. Furthermore, we embed learning games and brain training activities that help children to improve their memory and stimulate their minds. Our courses are always effective, challenging and enjoyable.
Do you work with students who live abroad but want to apply for a place at a British school?
Absolutely. Many of our students come from countries such as the USA, Dubai, Nigeria, Russia, Saudi Arabia, China and Japan. We have a vast level of experience in supporting these students and helping them to become more acquainted with the British curriculum and 11+ exam content. We always strive to ensure that all of our students, regardless of their nationality, enjoy their experience of studying with us.

I’ve taught my child myself, should I enrol them in the course?
