What is the 5 Day 10+ October Course?
Our 10+ October Half Term Course is built to provide your child with all the information, techniques and confidence required to be a successful candidate for your chosen schools’ entrance exams. Over the week, your child will revise and harness their skills in a class environment, filling in any remaining gaps in knowledge and bringing their existing knowledge to a more advanced level. The course is based upon the most popular topics for the entrance exams; mathematics, creative writing, comprehension and exam technique are all covered.
How is our online course structured?
The October half-term course is a 5 day course running from Monday to Friday with 5.5 hours of instruction per day. It is managed by our course instructors who possess over 20 years of experience in exam preparation collectively. Lessons are in small groups of a maximum 6 per tutor. All classwork, homework, mock exams, assessments, online practice questions/assessments are included.
After the course, a mock exam will be offered at the end of the course, so we can suggest the best recommendations to help your child in their studies. A written report with honest feedback and recommendations is emailed to parents ensuring parents are abreast of the insights we gather during the course.
These intensive courses are perfect for making the most of your child’s October half-term. Despite the intensive tuition, the class environment and lesson structure is built to be fun and engaging. This means that your child will be happy to learn, and more often than not, leave with a smile on their face and some new friends.
