13+ weekly preparation classes for children preparing for the 13+ exams running all year round. Children are free to join us at any time throughout the year, with spaces available for children Year 6 and above.
Our 13+ Preparation Programme provides knowledge and instruction in all topics and areas including maths, creative writing, comprehension, non verbal reasoning, verbal reasoning, exam practice and interview experience. We prepare for the entrance exams in most private schools in London and the surrounding counties, and have successfully prepared over 800 children to date for schools such as Trinity School, Caterham School, Whitgift, Dulwich College, City of London School, Kingston Grammar School and many more.
Bear in mind, many children will not be able to achieve the high results required for admission (depending on how soon preparation begins, the natural abilities of the child, and the increasing levels of competition) and so we carry out ongoing assessment in order to let you know as soon as possible how likely it is for your child to pass and under which circumstances success will be most likely. We operate a strict policy whereby we only continue tuition for children who are suitable in terms of ability, potential and personality. We provide feedback on these issues and will be in a position to comment on this after 4-8 weeks of instruction (depending on the level and age of child).
We offer online classes and face to face classes in a school.
Students receive two hourly lessons each week, an hour in Maths/Reasoning and an hour in English/Reasoning, taught by live and experienced tutors using video calling and an interactive whiteboard. All classwork, homework, mock exam papers, assessments, online practice questions/assessments are included and will be posted to students. Homework is the linchpin of the course and ensures students receive appropriate practice to achieve mastery for 13+ success. In addition, students benefit from an easy hand-in and return homework system.
As a summary students receive:
Students receive 2.5 hour lessons every Saturday, and the sessions are split in half for Maths/Non-verbal Reasoning and English/Verbal Reasoning. Lessons are in small groups of 6 per tutor. Managing tutors are very competent and possess over 10 years of entrance exam experience. All classwork, homework, mock exams, assessments, online practice questions/assessments are included.

Who is the 13 Plus preparation class for?
Currently, the 13 Plus Preparation Programmes is available for students in year 5 to year 8. Children are placed in groups according to their year group and ability.
Our Year 5 course lays the foundation for students so that they are efficient at key problem solving techniques required for all four subjects (maths, English, verbal reasoning & non-verbal reasoning). At this stage children are prepared so they can successfully compete in the pre-test exams.
Year 6 children will be work on technique, timing and mock exam practice. Advanced vocabulary work and creative writing are also taught during the larger group sessions to encourage discussion and to enable children to learn from each other. After the pre-test exams, students will then continue to extend their knowledge so they can maintain their knowledge of the subjects.
We recommend children start from the latest Year 7, if they are preparing for the 13+ Year 8 exams, so as to ensure children have the time to attain the skills necessary for this kind of assessment. This course introduces harder topics whilst working on mastering the key core skills in maths and english. Children learn how to approach a variety of questions and are given plenty of opportunity to practise the techniques required for all four subjects (maths, English, verbal reasoning & non-verbal reasoning).
Finally, for Year 8, children are taught how to gain maximum marks with efficient exam techniques. At this level, there is a larger emphasis on practice and proficiency, as well as interview techniques, as this is an essential aspect of the test for those children sitting 13+ exams for private schools. Practice papers, group interviews and exam questions centred around numeracy, literacy and reasoning will also be elaborated in the 4 months.
We have classes running all year. Children are welcome to join us at any time of the year as our classes are designed to cover the entire syllabus, irrespective of the start term. Ideally however, children should be enrolled as early as possible in order to get the maximum benefit from the classes. This is important because many schools now require a pre-exam before the main November/December exam, giving students three months less to prepare. An early start ensures that your child will get adequate practice before these exams, removing the panic of last minute preparations and cramming. Despite this, we have also seen significant improvement with children who attend just a week/few weeks before the exam. There are also the intensive courses in Easter, Summer, October half term and Christmas available to those who find this option most suitable.
We have personally helped students gain acceptance into schools such as:
Our success in 9+, 10+ and 11+ preparation over the past few years can be found below:
Our 13+ preparation classes are held either online or in school (face to face) in our Victoria location. Both options are controlled by our highly experienced course managers, with instruction given by competent teachers, who follow our programmes closely, ensuring the best service possible.
Students take live online classes with a tutor in small groups of 2-4 students. This ensures a dynamic environment for children to learn and also allows for each child to receive enough attention.
We make use of an online interactive whiteboard alongside online video calling via Google Meet. This tried and tested method is very easy to use – thanks to our years of experience working with students internationally, we now have a track record of effective online tuition with children from ages 8 to 18 in many subjects.
Our two hourly designated lessons are fairly flexible and can be held at any time throughout the week. We work with parents to ensure an appropriate time is scheduled for all of our students.
