Maths and English are combined as one module for those attending the Summer School. This is to ensure students obtain the maximum learning in just 15 days. The Maths and English run from 9am to 1.00pm for specific levels. The 4 hours are broken down into 2 hours of Maths and 2 hours of English. We run various themes throughout the summer programme and thus it is vital students undertake all 3 weeks to aid their progression, as the lessons get progressively harder as the weeks progress. There is a lot to get through in the allocated time so the pace is quite fast and upbeat. For this reason we use professional tutors who are well equipped to tutor students at different ability levels. The Summer School courses are as follows:-



Phonics Reading Programme


Year 2


Year 4


11+ Programme – this is a unique programme which runs over a longer day from 9.00am to 3.15pm. It covers Maths, English, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning. Again, quite an intense programme, but one in which the students get the opportunity to work on their own, discuss vital topics and work in groups. The pace is fast and upbeat to keep the momentum going for each student. Many are amazed at how quickly the time goes and also at how much they cover in such a short pace of time. Students go onto to undertake some vital assessments later in the year and many continue with our 11+ term time course in September.
