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.
One of our students, Mohammed S, made national headlines when he passed his GCSE Maths exam whilst also preparing for his 11+. He had just four weeks to prepare for his exam and attended our 11+ summer course in order to improve his performance.
We use highly engaging tools, techniques and strategies to help students to progress quickly. This ensures that your child gets the results that they need to succeed in the exam and beyond.
The summer course is managed by our founder (Victoria) 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.
