We have had lots of calls from parents asking us how they can help their child stay on track over the summer, whilst giving them a well deserved break from the stresses of the past few months.
Our advice is always to take a proper break over the holiday with a little and often approach to study to help keep young brains ticking over.
Lots of outdoors is a given, however down-time can provide plenty of learning opportunities such as reading, audio books, mental maths, handling money, writing shopping lists, keeping a diary and watching film adaptations of the classics like Oliver Twist, Little Women, Willy Wonka, and Mary Poppins.
For those children with an 11+ examination on the horizon a little more structure is vital. We have a full support programme running over the summer for year 5 children transitioning to Year 6 and preparing for Independent and Grammar school tests including Alleyn's, City, DC, Emanuel, GDST, JAGS, KCS, Wallington and Wilsons.

Digital Academic Assessments for 7+, 11+ 13+
We are one of the few Educational Consultancies licensed to offer assessments by CEM. This digital diagnostic test taken at home, is also used by top schools in the UK to identify students who meet their selection criteria. It provides a complete academic profile and helps identify subject strengths and weaknesses. This can play a key role in 11+ planning and school choices. Call the Assessment team to ask about our offer of £245.
