2019 Course Dates

Our Year 5 Berks, Bucks and Slough 11 Plus Easter Course runs for three days in Stoke Poges.

What you can expect for your child

We develop pupils’ knowledge so they’re equipped to answer a broad range of challenging verbal, mathematical and non-verbal reasoning questions. In addition to their personal targets, time will be spent working on:

 

Verbal skills

  • Comprehension
  • Verbal reasoning (vocabulary: the production of words, use of words and relationships between words)
  • Spelling
  • Grammar
  • Punctuation

Mathematical skills (numerical reasoning)

  • Basic skills (addition, multiplication,
    division and subtraction)
  • Mental maths development
  • Problem solving techniques
  • Extracting information from
    graphs and tables
  • Fractions and ratios
  • Foundation algebra concepts

Non-verbal skills

  • Spatial awareness
  • Logical deduction skills
  • Mathematical concepts such as
    symmetry, rotation and reflection

Small classes

We have small class sizes, 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.

Breaks

To help your child consolidate their memories and continue to absorb new information, we include one 10 minute break on each day of the course.

The importance of sleep

As sleep plays an important role in consolidating new memories, we recommend that your child gets as much sleep as possible during their course and any other key periods of learning. School-age children need between 9 and 12 hours of sleep a night and there are a few simple things you can do to help them get to sleep, such as turning off the TV, iPad or computer at least two hours before bedtime – the light from these can interfere with the production of the hormone melatonin, which affects sleep-wake cycles.

Fees

In addition to the course fees, there is a charge for Easter Course books (£15 in 2018), payable in full at registration.

If your child already studies with us, they’ll be eligible for a 10% discount on our fees below (excludes book fees).

I would like to tell you that she has “loved” the Easter course, her word, and is very enthused by her time there. It’s a small point to an adult, but she really likes her new folder and she is very proud of it with the new books. Providing the stationery and laying out the tables neatly before the children arrived also had a very positive impact on her. Thank you!

Daniel really enjoyed the course this week which was lovely to hear. He came home enthusiastic after each session and felt he had learnt new things. Sinead made the classes interesting and fun.
Year 5 parent, Tylers Green (2016)
Your course has been invaluable in allowing her to work with her peers, realising that it is normal to find 11+ work challenging, restoring her confidence and realising that hard work and persistence will win the day. In Sara’s own words, “I enjoyed that they made the work fun so that it was interesting and you wouldn’t be tempted to doze off. I also thought my teacher, Anne, is a lovely lady. I learnt some new ways of doing things which will help me when it comes to the 11+ exams.”

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.

Amy really enjoyed the Easter course last week and was sad when it was over on Thursday.
