Our Online Year 6 October Half Term Course aims to provide a booster for students who are currently undertaking their 11+ examinations. This course provides parents and students with the flexibility to choose subjects, and fit the course more neatly with schedules. Classes will take place in an online learning environment called BigBlueButton.

Due to the design and pace of the course, we expect that by the end of the week, participating students will have polished their exam technique, better understood their strengths and weaknesses, mastered the toughest 11+ topics, and improved their speed and fluency. All of this maximises students’ potential when it comes to the current entrance examinations.

We look forward to welcoming you to our online October Half Term Course.

Tutors will guide students through textual analysis, helping them identify the writer’s purposeful choices, how language is used for effect, and highlighting key features that students can replicate in their own works.
  • By the end of this course, students will have covered:
    • Interpretation and analysis of quality texts of various genres.
    • Evaluation of language use and the effect of word choice on narrative.
