Your child is assessed twice during each team – at half term and at the end of term.

Jon is enjoying his sessions thoroughly and is looking forward to continuing them next year too.
Year 4 parent, Chesham (2017)
Just wanted to pass on our gratitude for helping our children Roshni and Harvir with their 11 plus tuition.
Year 5 and 4 parent, Great Kingshill (2016)
Katie passed the 11+ (143) and is very happy to be going to Wycombe High School with her best friend (only 3/30 from her class passed so I think the extra work on Maths during the summer and the revision courses were worth the effort!). Hoping her fellow students did well too.
Year 5 parent, Hazlemere (2016)
We are finding the course really good and Antoinette seems to have connected well with Sarah, who is one of her friends’ mothers so that’s worked out well. I’ll certainly recommend your course to anyone that asks.
Year 5 parent, Great Missenden (2015)
He passed his 11+ with a score of 163 – he is absolutely thrilled! Thanks for your help with him this year.
Year 5 parent, Little Kingshill (2015)
He has become more confident since starting the extra practice sessions with Anne and has moved up a few levels in maths at school. That has boosted his confidence.
Year 5 parent, Chesham (2015)
Thanks so much to you and Anne for this week, it is really helping Daniel to get back into the right frame of mind after weeks of playing!
Year 5 parent, Great Missenden (2014)
Daniel enjoyed his lesson with Anne – thanks so much. I could tell straightaway that Anne was completely professional, a different league!
Year 5 parent, Great Missenden (2014)
We have been really happy with the tutoring that Rory has received from you.
