Assessment

Your child is assessed twice during each team – at half term and at the end of term. This means that we can check they’ve achieved their individual targets and devise a Tuition Plan that suits their needs and challenges. We’ll share all assessment results and Tuition Plans with you and you’re more than welcome to discuss them with us.

Resource Pack

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.

Feedback from Beaconsfield parents

I’d like to update you that Devkrish was successfully offered a place at the Royal Grammar School (first choice). He did attend a couple of your summer courses- mock exams which he found very useful. He enjoyed the sessions organised for the mock exams. Devkrish looks forward to excel in an academic environment. Thanks a lot.
Year 6 parent, Beaconsfield (2018)
I really appreciate getting data like this – it’s extremely useful and good to see that he is tracking well so far. He is actually really enjoying the lessons, more than I thought he would so the teacher is clearly doing a great job. The homework regime is also proving really helpful in terms of structuring the time I spend with him and understanding more directly where his strengths and weaknesses are.
Year 4 parent, Beaconsfield (2017)
I am pleased to report that Freddie passed, albeit by the skin of his teeth, with a score of 122! Please pass on my thanks to Anne for all her hard work with Freddie last year.
Year 5 parent, Beaconsfield (2017)
He did very well passed both Bucks and Berks. Thanks.
Year 5 parent, Beaconsfield (2017)
She passed 😀
Year 5 parent, Penn (2017)
Jack is getting on well. He passed! His score was 139 so we’re all very happy with that.
Year 5 parent, Hazlemere (2017)
I thought you’d like to know that he passed his 11plus – not with a whopping score but a pass is a pass. We are dead chuffed! Thank you for all your help.
Year 5 parent, Beaconsfield (2017)
I am delighted with Daniel’s results and I know that he will be too! So that you know, when we had Daniel’s end of term parents evening and last Progress Test reports from school, we were told that Daniel had made ‘much higher than expected progress’ in Maths and English since last taking the tests in 2016. I do credit Daniel for this of course, but I also want to say that I firmly believe that your tuition has also helped him to achieve these levels. Please pass on my thanks to his tutor, and let’s hope that he keeps up the good work.
Year 4 parent, Beaconsfield (2017)
Thanks for the hard work with her this year and Laila is looking forward to getting back into it in September 🙂
Year 4 parent, Beaconsfield (2017)
Devkrish has enjoyed and found it beneficial attending your courses at Beaconsfield. He looks forward to attending one more summer holiday week course at Beaconsfield and the refresher lesson to follow also at Beaconsfield.
Year 5 parent, Beaconsfield (2017)
I would like to let you know that for Christian out of all his academic activities, tuition is his favourite!
Year 4 parent, Beaconsfield (2017)
I think he has taken really well to the sessions and I look forward to him continuing with them to give him the support he needs to achieve his full potential. I am delighted with Daniel’s progress.
Year 4 parent, Beaconsfield (2016)
She was pleased with her score of 145. Many thanks for the summer course which she found very engaging, fun and useful. She has a brother who will be taking the 11 plus in 2020 so will be in contact again nearer the time.
Year 5 parent, Penn (2016)
I am pleased to say Daniel passed the 11+ with a score of 130. He really enjoyed your Easter and summer courses and we will definitely be booking for our youngest in 2017/18.
Year 5 parent, Penn (2016)
He passed! Thank you for all your hard work with the groups. Couldn’t have done it without tuition for sure. We are very pleased.
Year 5 parent, Beaconsfield (2016)
He passed with flying colours. We were very pleased with his results as was he.
Year 5 parent, Beaconsfield (2016)
William is settling nicely in year 6. We’re delighted that he passed his 11+ with a fantastically high score! Thanks for your support and I hope we’ll be as successful with our daughter.
Year 5 parent, Beaconsfield (2016)
He passed the exam, (and not a bad effort!) and will be allocated a space at grammar school which we are delighted about. Thank you and your team for your support during the 11+.
Year 5 parent, Beaconsfield (2016)
This is a special thank you for all your efforts with them. They both passed their 11 plus with super scores! 143 and 150 respectively.
Year 5 parent, Beaconsfield (2016)
Just a quick note to tell you that Polly passed with a score of 139. Please thank Sarah and I appreciate all you did for Polly, especially moving the lessons around for her activity schedule and my work hours! We are delighted. I hope you have a good result throughout your classes.
Year 5 parent, Beaconsfield (2016)
Hi Marie, Oliver has “qualified for a Buckinghamshire grammar school”! We are very happy indeed. Please convey our thanks to Anne. His score was 130.
Year 5 parent, Beaconsfield (2016)
Mia is really enjoying the course this week. She was actually keen to join you next week too.
Year 5 parent, Beaconsfield (2016)
Harvey enjoyed the first lesson – very impressed and looking forward to tomorrow’s lesson.
Year 5 parent, Beaconsfield (2016)
I’m delighted to say that Connie passed her 11+ with a score of 167. Thank you very much for your contribution to that. We opted for your week long holiday course to kick start the ‘back to work’ moment. The structure and games that made up the classes plus completing the week with a mock were a great start to that process, just the right tone and content. In addition she chose to come to your one off Saturday class just before the exam on the Thursday and this too helped her with techniques for managing exam stress. Many thanks again and all the best for 2016.
Year 5 parent, Beaconsfield (2015)
I wanted to just let you know that Jake really enjoyed his first session last week and seems motivated to complete the homework.
Year 5 parent, Beaconsfield (2015)
Thank you, Polly really enjoyed the lesson today.
Year 5 parent, Beaconsfield (2015)
Connie enjoyed the summer school course. She was very happy to come in every day and seemed relaxed whilst also enjoying the work. Please pass on our thanks to the teacher for her work with Connie and her cheerful kindness throughout. It was very much appreciated.
