We have 2 tutoring centres of excellence

London Academy

Bushey Academy

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 courses at our Saturday, Summer and Winter School at the London Academy and Bushey Academy. These will provide an excellent opportunity for your child to enhance their academic potential in great learning environments with highly professional tutors. Each course is uniquely designed so pupils can apply their knowledge to their mainstream schoolwork and assessments, for example, if undertaking the 4+, 5+, 7+ or 11+ entrance assessments. During the lessons, pupils are provided with workbooks and tutors teach material which pupils practise and continue for homework. Results are extremely encouraging - if you would like to attend an Open Day at the Edgware or Bushey location, please call now on 0203 637 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. The workbooks provide great results for those attending through structured support and challenge. 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, elements designed for homework are completed on a weekly basis during term time, providing excellent results for children who practise their reading and writing skills daily. Once pupils complete a 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 - this is used as a guide to allocate them to the correct Phonics & Writing Course level.

Maths Course for Children

We run an excellent Maths Course. Pupils who attend this programme usually also attend our English Course. We see some amazing results when pupils undertake both the Maths and English simultaneously during Term Time, or at our Summer/ Winter Schools. Prior to enrolling onto the Maths Course, pupils undertake a Maths assessment to establish their ability level. This information is used as a guide to allocate each pupil to the correct class. Once pupils work through the course, we find that children are able to undertake complex tasks and achieve great results at school and in their assessments. Each pupil is provided with a workbook - it is their responsibility to complete these during the lesson and at home for homework. We tutor each pupil who attends the course face to face in small groups so they receive maximum attention - 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 pupils have an excellent command of English and we have undertaken high quality research to provide stimulating material for our pupils. Lessons contain a variety of subjects aligned to the National Curriculum. This means, once our pupils complete the course, they can apply knowledge in their mainstream setting and in assessments, accelerating their progress. We do our utmost to help each child reach their 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.

We undertake 4+, 5+, 7+ and 11+ assessment preparation throughout the year. This commences with our term time Reading, Maths and English programmes (with Verbal and Non-Verbal preparation 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 assessments in January. We highly recommend preparation takes place as early as possible and on an ongoing basis, to ensure children are 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.
