My son Luca really liked the tuition, especially the very organised homework sheets and books. Thank you.
Year 5 parent, Gerrards Cross (2018)
Joe did well in his 11+ – he got 133, so qualified for grammar school, and we’re especially pleased with how he approached the test. He was very calm and unflustered. I’m sure the week he spent with your team over summer played a big part in this, so many thanks to you all.
Year 5 parent, Chalfont St Peter (2017)
We were so pleased with her efforts throughout and just wanted to say thank you because the tuition was really fun and she developed so much during the year of tuition! She learned to manage her workload and seems to be more of an active learner now whereas she has previously struggled with confidence and has been quite quiet at school, but she seems to have really come out of herself now! We know that she will do well wherever she goes and is more prepared for secondary school as a result of this last year with you so thank you!
Year 5 parent, Gerrards Cross (2017)
I’m delighted to tell you that he passed the 11+. It was such a difficult year for him, catching up on schooling having moved from abroad, so it was an uphill struggle! As you can imagine, his passing was made all the sweeter for us and I can’t tell you how proud of him we are!
Year 5 parent, Gerrards Cross (2017)
She scored 133 for Bucks and 119 for Berks. She was very pleased! Hope the rest of the group were equally pleased.
Year 5 parent, Gerrards Cross (2017)
I am pleased to tell you he achieved a score of 129 – thank you so much for all of your support!
Year 5 parent, Gerrards Cross (2017)
He is really enjoying his tutor sessions so far and he and we are delighted with his initial assessment results.
Year 5 parent, Gerrards Cross (2017)
I’d like to thank you very much for all your work and effort and also for the progress Ondrej has made with you. I much appreciate all the hard work that you and your colleagues do.
Year 4 parent, Chalfont St Peter (2017)
As you know I have been very happy with the tutoring George has had this year.
Year 5 parent, Chalfont St Giles (2017)
Overall I am very happy with her progress. English is definitely her hardest subject and she can be very hit or miss in tests. However, her average continues to increase and she is always buzzing when she comes out from the lesson. 
Year 4 parent, Chalfont St Peter (2017)
I wanted to say how impressed I am with the whole process. George is cracking on and I feel like we are on the right path. Many thanks
Year 5 parent, Gerrards Cross (2017)
He passed with an excellent score of 153. Thanks for your help, the test didn’t faze him in the least thanks to all the preparation.
Year 5 parent, Gerrards Cross (2016)
They both passed so very happy. Thanks to you and your staff.
Year 5 parent, Chalfont St Peter (2016)
Joe is enjoying Yr 6, especially as he passed his 11 Plus exam.
Year 5 parent, Gerrards Cross (2016)
Hannah did really well, she got 143! So she’s very pleased. I have a daughter who’s just gone into year 5 so will take hers next sept so I will be in touch to book her in a summer course nearer the time! Many thanks.
Year 5 parent, Chalfont St Peter (2016)
Happily Harry passed the 11+ with a score of 129.
Year 5 parent, Gerrards Cross (2016)
Tania qualified with a score of 143. Thanks for all your help and support during the course.
Year 5 parent, Chalfont St Peter (2016)
We were keen for our son to have some preparation for the 11+ without it being too intense or pressured. We opted for a class structure with a social aspect that rather than intense 1:1 tuition. Our son enjoyed his classes throughout the year and the summer refresher work. Marie was always helpful by email as we had some questions along the way. A very positive experience as our son passed with 134 and his hard work paid off. Thank you Marie and Anne!”
Year 5 parent, Chalfont St Giles (2016)
Robbie got 124. Great news! Thank you for everything.
Year 5 parent, Gerrards Cross (2016)
I am pleased to say James passed with a score of 135. We are delighted, especially considering he did very little preparation over the summer holidays as he broke his arm. Thanks to you and the teaching staff for helping him achieve this outcome. James enjoyed the lessons – it was never difficult to get him to attend.
Year 5 parent, Gerrards Cross (2016)
He qualified 🙂 Thank you and good luck to all your new students.

Year 5 parent, Gerrards Cross (2016)
Just to let you know that he passed his 11+ with a score of 129. We would like to thank you and all of the teachers who helped him do so well with the test, we are overjoyed with this result.
Year 5 parent, Denham (2016)
Amber enjoyed the course and found it very useful.
Year 5 parent, Gerrards Cross (2016)
Thank you for the course and I will be sure to recommend you and no doubt be back again when my daughter will be starting.
Year 5 parent, Gerrards Cross (Summer 2016)
His maths has improved immensely since he has joined Sarah’s class. He still finds some aspects difficult but he is improving all the time and has moved up 2 tables in his class. It is obviously working for him which is great for his confidence. So many thanks all round.
Year 5 parent, Gerrards Cross (2016)
Both of them passed -Millie 130 Nathan 132. Thank you for the course-just the right amount of light pressure but fun too!!
Year 5 parent, Gerrards Cross (2015)
Aggie passed 11+! (130) Thank you so much for all your help. I will recommend you to any year 5s!
Year 5 parent, Gerrards Cross (2015)
He really enjoyed his first lesson last week and has even enjoyed doing his homework.
Year 5 parent, Gerrards Cross (2015)
Harry really enjoyed yesterday, thank you.
Year 5 parent, Gerrards Cross (2015)
We are very pleased with her attainment and the tutoring you are providing – thank you.
