Small class sizes

All our Bushey 11 Plus classes are limited in size which means that your child will have valuable one-to-one attention with their fully qualified teacher. Discover the proven benefits of small class sizes.


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.

I just wanted to let you know that Lucas got a 119 in the Slough consortium results today. We are very pleased of course. Many thanks to you, Sinead and your other staff. Your services provided us with a clear structure and support. Especially with us changing lessons due to family commitments.
Year 5 parent, Langley (2017)
Bisma had a great first session last Saturday at Stoke Poges – this was a real positive as she was very nervous at the start. I would also like to add that correspondence from yourself and your colleagues was informative and timely. The homework resources were well organised and we were able to find and use everything with ease – I especially liked the use of the purple folder containing that weeks homework. The small incentives used to motivate the children also worked a treat! Early days but a happy start.
Year 4 parent, Langley (2017)
Sara passed both the Slough and the Bucks 11+ exams – she is now hoping to go to Langley Grammar School 🙂 I will be asking Sara to send you a message herself over the next few days. In the mean time I would like to offer my sincere thanks to you and your team. Your efforts instilled self confidence in Sara and gave her the fine tuning in her skills that she needed to pass the 11+. You managed to do this in a non-stressful environment where, through innovative and imaginative techniques, learning was actually made fun unlike so many other tutors I have heard about. I would whole-heartedly endorse you to other parents who may be considering tuition for their children. Thanks again, I hope your other children enjoyed the same success that Sara had.
