Can anyone recommend a good Easter /Summer holiday Wandsworth Test camp?

Hi there,

I'm looking for recommendations for any Easter or Summer (or both) camps that prepare children for the Wandsworth Test in October.

Thanks in advance

Hi Rachel,

That is great.
Is this appropriate for the Wandsworth Test though? We are not aiming for an independent school 11+ test.

TIA

Hello,
Yes because reasoning is a large part of the course.

I would save your cash and buy the GL assessment practice papers - 11+  NVR & VR multiple choice - from amazon

Practice them especially the timing

Hi Katherine,

It sounds like you may be interested in the comprehensive verbal and non-verbal revision course which I am running for the second year at Belleville School and also adding a second location at Ravenstone School. We revise the full VR and NVR syllabus, addressing misconceptions, teaching strategies and test technique and using timed paper practice to boost understanding, pace and, as a result, confidence.

We use a mixture of team activities to apply the reasoning strategies which are fun as well as highly motivating and independent question and test work to improve individual performance. Feedback following the course last year said the children felt much more confident about sitting the Wandsworth Test and that they would recommend this course to children in Year 5. Please contact me if you would like references from parents whose children attended this course last year.

Our test tutors are qualified teachers and specialists in non-verbal and verbal reasoning with current DBS certificates.

Please visit my website for further details: http://www.testclub.co.uk/Summer-Revision-Course.php

We are currently offering an early bird discount for places booked by 1st March. Bookings can be made via Eventbrite. Places are limited as much of the teaching is in small groups and tailored to the needs of the children.

Belleville (Webb’s Road) 29th July – 2nd August, 9.00am – 3.30pm https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/verbal-a ... s&aff=eios


Ravenstone (Balham) 19th – 23rd August, 9.00am – 3.30pm
https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/verbal-a ... s&aff=eios


This summer course is a collaboration between two local tutoring companies: http://www.testclub.co.uk/ and https://gyminds.co.uk/ - combining expertise and experience to help your child become test ready for September.

Best wishes,

Katherine

Thanks Katherine,

That sounds like just what we are after. Sadly we'll miss the Belleville (daughter is at Belleville) one but will probably book in for the later one at Ravenstone. Thanks.
