English
  • 1 hour
  • This course has been designed to develop our students’ understanding of literary techniques and their applications both in writing and reading comprehension. These are the core focus of the English exams in the stage 2 of the 11+ entrance examinations and are often tough to prepare for, so we highly recommend starting early. Tutors will guide students through analysis of a variety of texts, helping them identify the writer’s purposeful choices to illustrate how language is used for effect. These key features studied will form a foundation for students to adapt and replicate in their own works.
  • By the end of this course, our students will have covered:
    • Interpret and analyse texts efficiently by ‘reading between the lines’ for deeper meaning.
    • Improve the quality of their writing through improved sentence structure, figurative language, language skills and wider vocabulary use.
    • Gain confidence and knowledge in spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPAG).
    • Read and write more fluently and confidently.

Maths
  • 1 hour
  • We have handpicked tricky topics which often prove to be the stumbling blocks in the 11+ examinations, with a particular focus throughout the course on worded problem-solving questions that even the brightest students find the most challenging.
  • By the end of this course, our students will have covered:
    • Explain their thinking, including showing their working out.
    • Reason mathematically, and apply their knowledge for problem solving.
    • Speed up on calculations of increasingly complex arithmetic.
    • Recognise and apply important mathematical knowledge.

Dates and Times

This course runs from 14th to 18th February, Monday to Friday. Each day, classes will run between 9am and 11:15am. Each subject that you select will run for 60 minutes per day, with a short break after each class.

Your timetable will be bespoke to you, as it is entirely dependent on your chosen subjects and availability, and will be confirmed to you by 7th February.

Homework and Marking

Students will be given a daily homework task for each subject, which will consist of completing their booklets from that day.

The day after submission, their booklets will be marked and returned to you with teachers comments, to give rapid feedback on progress, students’ strengths and weaknesses, and areas to focus on.

In case you’d like to review any of the work with your child after the course itself, markschemes will also be made available to view on the online portal, for 3 weeks after the date of the lesson.
