tuition for an individual school

Applying to an individual school can be daunting, but we’re here to steer you and your child safely through the admissions procedure.

We offer so much more than content-rich teaching sessions covering the curriculum for each specific school.

Welcome potential Sevenoaks parents!

The good news is that Sevenoaks post previous exam papers on their site, so that we all have access to the right material to work from.

The bad news is that ‘having a go’ at a paper is not enough if your child is going to be able to compete with the best of the best on the day.

Our expertise is in the technical detail. We draw on your child’s strengths, boost their confidence, and turbo-charge the quality of their written answers.

Last year every one of our students was awarded a place. Two were awarded scholarships…

Each session costs £30 and lasts 90 minutes.  Click here to request a place.

 

How does it all work?

We prepare children for admissions examinations for the schools listed here, and for other schools on request.

  •  Kent College, Pembury
  • Sevenoaks School (Year 7 entry only)
  • St Olave’s, Orpington
  • Walthamstow Hall, Sevenoaks
  • ISEB Common Pre-test Schools (including Tonbridge, Caterham, Brighton College – see full list here)

We believe in the little-and-often approach.

The full curriculum of the exam is covered in small, manageable pieces,  allowing plenty of time to tackle any issues that arise.

What about homework?

Homework is a compulsory part of the programme as we mark and discuss the work within the planning of the following week’s lesson. It shouldn’t take more than 20 minutes at most – we encourage parents to let us know if anything crops up – and includes maths or English with two reasoning activities.

And mixed abilities?

Individual needs are addressed as part of the programme.

How do we join?

Just fill out the form to start the ball rolling.

For pupils wishing to join a club right now, we will get back to you as soon as possible with current availability and next steps.

We know that parents like to get ahead on this, so you can secure a place for next or future years. There is no sign-up fee, and we will add your contact to our waiting list and notify you as soon as places are available for booking. Priority is given to those who joined the list earliest when we begin allocating places.
