Fri 4.00-6.00pm in St Giles' Church Hall, Ickenham.

Sep 2024-25 Year 6 Course - Ickenham (SATS preparation)

Mon 4.00-6.00pm in St Giles' Church Hall, Ickenham. 

In our Yr 4 sessions a strong focus will be placed upon the development of literacy, this being achieved through class based exercises and an emphasis upon the importance of regular reading.  Additionally, we will develop the numeracy skills which can then be applied to the more complex questions associated with the Year 5 11+ course. We will work closely with each student to ensure that they are thoroughly prepared for the demands of the specific 11+ test which they are preparing to complete.

During the Yr 5 sessions students will advance onto the more complex topics associated with 11+ preparation. There will be a strong emphasis on recognition of common question types and developing the tools and strategies to answer these effectively. 

The Yr 6 course changes emphasis - moving away from topics such as verbal/non-verbal reasoning - which are relevant for 11+ preparation but less so after these assessments have been completed. Instead, the focus is purely upon the development of Maths and English skills, including aspects such as creative/descriptive and persuasive writing which will be of increrasing importance in future years.

"We would recommend Simon to any family looking for 11+ tuition.  From day one as parents we felt in safe hands as he put us at ease with his clear explanation of the system and his tuition programme.  As the sessions took place it soon became clear that Simon is an excellent tutor, he is calm, patient, professional, flexible and provides frequent and tailored feedback." - Parent

"Simon has had a fantastically positive effect on our daughter’s confidence, and we will always be enormously grateful to him.  When our son is ready for 11+ tuition, without any hesitation we will be signing up with Simon!" - Parent
