We have 3 tutoring centres of excellence
Maths and English at our popular Saturday, Summer or Winter School Courses
Saturday, Summer & Winter School
We run our Phonics with Writing and Maths and English at our Saturday, Summer and Winter School at the London Academy, Rickmansworth School and Bushey Academy. These will provide an excellent opportunity for your child to better enhance their learning potential in great learning environments with highly professional tutors. Each course is uniquely designed to obtain the full potential from each student so they can apply their knowledge to school and their assessments – if undertaking the 5+, 7+ or 11+ entrance assessments. During the lessons students are provided with Workbook and taught material which they then practice themselves and continue for homework. The results are very encouraging and if you would like to attend an Open Day at the Edgware, Bushey or Rickmansworth location, please call now on 020 3637 6266 (24hour call handling service)
Phonics & Writing Course for Children
We have a Phonics & Writing Course which stimulates the mind of young children and teaches them to read and write to the best of their ability. The Workbooks are fun and enjoyable and provide some great results for those attending. There are 3 levels and children can join at any level, at any time during the term time. To make the Phonics &Writing Course more effective, there are elements designed for homework which one administered on a weekly basis during the term time, provide some excellent results for children who practice these reading and writing skills weekly. Once students complete one level successfully, they progress to the next level. The 3 levels relate to each term and run for a duration of one year during term time and three weeks for one level during the Summer School. To enrol your child onto the Phonics& Wiring Course, your child first needs to undertake an assessment at one of our centres which is used as a guide to allocate them to the correct Phonics & Writing Course level.
Maths Course for Children
We have an excellent Maths Course for students who attend this programme which can be combined with the English Course. We see some amazing results when students undertake both the Maths and English during the Term Time, Summer or Winter School course. Prior to enrolling onto the Maths Course students undertake a Maths assessment to establish their level ability. This information is used as a guide to allocate each student to the correct class. Once they work through the Course we find that children undertake some complex tasks and achieve some great results at school and in their assessments. Each student is provided with a Workbook which is their responsibility to complete during the lesson and at home for homework. We tutor each student who attends the course face to face in small groups so they receive the maximum attention and their progress is carefully monitored by a professional tutor. The Maths levels we tutor are:-

English Course for Children
Our English Course works extremely well when combined with the Maths Course. It is vital students have an excellent command of English and undertake loads of research throughout the year to provide stimulating material for our students. The lessons contain a variety of subjects aligned with the school national curriculum. This means once our students undertake the course, they can them apply that fundamental knowledge in school and potentially accelerate. We do our utmost to help each child accelerate to their full potential and work closely with parents to do this. There are new subjects each term with elements of revision during the term with an assessment.

5+ 7+ 11+
We undertake the 5+, 7+ and 11+ assessment preparation throughout the year. This commences with our term time, Reading, Maths and English and Verbal and Non-Verbal on the 11+ Programme. This then continues with our programmes at the Summer School and finishes with the 7+ and 11+ Winter School in preparation for the Assessments in January. We highly recommend the preparation takes place as early as possible and on an ongoing basis to ensure the student is fully prepared. Please also undertake as much research as possible on the potential schools you would be interested in your child attending. We recommend you select more than one school as part of this process.
