We’ll share all assessment results and Tuition Plans with you and you’re more than welcome to discuss them with us.

At the start of the course, your child will receive a resource pack containing their class and homework books, carefully selected from a wide range of reputable publishers.

All of our students are presented with their books in a Marie Redmond Tuition® rucksack, featuring an electronic thesaurus, note book and a pencil case containing pencils, an eraser and sharpener. The cost of the resource pack is fully covered by our annual book fee.

Lily passed with a score of 129 and has applied to attend Chesham Grammar School. Obviously we were and are delighted. Lily worked very hard during the last year to achieve a pass and I hope this has taught her a valuable lesson at a young age – that hard work normally pays dividends. Lily is very happy and we feel sure that she will thrive at Grammar School. I will be recommending Marie Redmond based upon our experiences. I would like to convey that I have found Sarah to be an excellent tutor. A good deal of Lily’s success is as a direct result of Sarah’s thoughtful and positive tuition. Thank you again for your support. Oscar is currently in Year 3 and we expect him to be attending Marie Redmond Tuition in 2019.
Year 5 parent, Amersham (2017)
I will let you know James’ result. To paraphrase the Duke of Wellington it was a damn close run thing – 122. I suppose no point in doing more than you need! We are relieved/delighted and many thanks for all the help. Please send along our appreciation to Sarah
Year 5 parent, Amersham (2017)

Ava passed! She did so well, 131, and she is absolutely thrilled. There’s no question that the classes made a huge difference, and thank you too for your helpful advice whilst we were waiting for the score. Thank you again, and we will see you in a year or two with our son Johnny! I will be sure to recommend you to Johnny’s classmates when the time comes. Ava is hoping to go to Dr Challoners and so excited about it!

Just a quick message to let you know that she got enough points for a Grammar School place. Thanks to all the team at Marie Redmond for all the hard work in preparing her.
Year 5 parent, Chesham Bois (2017)
Just a quick note to say he passed the 11 plus today. Please pass on my gratitude to his tutors and the structured, yet flexible organisation you run.
Year 5 parent, Chesham (2017)
We have some very good news to pass on to you! We are delighted to tell you that he scored 131 in his test, enabling him to apply for a place at RGS in High Wycombe, as he had hoped for. It is lovely that he will be able to attend the same school as his older brother, who will be in year 10 when he joins. A great result for all of the family! I would like to pass on my thanks to Sarah again, for all of the help and guidance she gave us on the course. I would strongly recommend the course he did if anyone asks me for advice in the future.
Year 5 parent, Amersham (2017)
She is making good progress and Sarah is an excellent teacher who seems to bring out the best in the children. Lily is enjoying the lessons and hopefully that bodes well for the run in to the exam itself. She is also learning a huge amount, which regardless will be of benefit in the future.
Year 5 parent, Amersham (2016)
Hi Marie, she did really well and has passed. Her score was 157.

Year 5 parent, Amersham (2015)
At long last the 11+ is over!! I just wanted to say that whatever happens with the actual results, the work you have done with Ben has been fantastic. His results at school have transformed this year and he is now performing a year above where he should be across the board. For me, whether he passes/fails the exam – this is actually more important and I wanted to thank you.
Year 5 parent, Amersham (2015)
Many thanks for your help. Kayan thoroughly enjoyed his time with you. We will get in touch with you again when registering our second son for 11+ tutorials.
Year 5 parent, Amersham (2015)
Maheen enjoyed her experience on the Easter course, the positive reinforcement seemed to do the trick. She learned a lot from her experience and mentioned that she was able to get a lot of things right when it came to different subjects.
Year 5 parent, Amersham (2015)
He is really enjoying his classes with Anne on Monday in Amersham, so much so we would also like to book him on one of your holiday courses.
Year 5 parent, Amersham (2015)
Amy really enjoyed the Easter course last week and was sad when it was over on Thursday.
Year 5 parent, Amersham (2015)
I’m really pleased with her general progress. Thanks to you both for your help with her learning to date, she always enjoys her lessons and is never reluctant to go to class – which is a compliment to you both and your approach to making learning fun and interesting for her.
Year 4 parent, Amersham (2015)
I really could not be happier with the growth in Spencer’s confidence. I genuinely think it takes a lot of skill to make a child want to do extra homework.
Year 5 parent, Amersham (2015)
We’re very pleased with his progress so far, particularly in maths, and this should be a good boost to his confidence.
Year 5 parent, Amersham (2015)
We are delighted to tell you that he got through with flying colours, so a big relief all round. Many thanks for your assistance.
Year 5 parent, Amersham (2014)

Morgan scored 153 in his Bucks 11+ and has qualified for Grammar. We are thrilled with his result and thank you for making the classes so enjoyable that he was happy to attend each week.
Year 5 parent, Amersham (2014)
Thank you very much for the mock test results. He is delighted with the score, and his improvement too. We would like to thank you for the help you have given him. As you know, my main aim was for him to feel more confident and well prepared for the test, which he certainly is now – thanks to your input last week.
Year 5 parent, Amersham (2014)
We, and more importantly our children, are very happy with Marie; she is lovely. We have noticed a huge increase in their confidence and even their school teachers have commented on it. Thank you, we are very grateful.
