5 engaging, interactive intensive days of tuition for children preparing for the 8+ private and grammar schools covering Maths/non verbal reasoning or English/verbal reasoning.
What is the 5 Day 8+ Easter Course?
Our Online 8+ Easter 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 5 days, your child will revise and harness their skills in a virtual classroom 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, exam technique, interview practice, reasoning skills are all covered.
Mock assessment tests are given at the beginning and end of the course, enabling you to see where your child is at the outset, and then gain insight as to how they progressed throughout the course. It also allows us to pinpoint any of your child’s sticking points, as well as their general strengths/weaknesses, so we can best provide help in reaching their potential.
These 5-day intensives are perfect for making the most of your child’s summer holidays, especially as so many students have missed out in schooling over the past months due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Despite the intensive tuition, the virtual class environment and lesson structure is designed 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 hopefully some new friends.
Each week students will join us in either:
English with Verbal Reasoning
Maths with Non verbal Reasoning
Each day parents/guardians and child are invited to engage in a maximum of 90 minutes online instruction and guidance from their designated tutor, to help make use of the material in the proper manner. This can be split up into 2 separate sessions – one for maths and one for English, and allows for questions and queries to be handled in regards to previous and current days’ work packs. The material for this level is not very complex and so parents will find it easy to follow their child’s progress and intervene wherever necessary.
You can choose which of these options you want your child to study in a given week – materials to supplement all online classes plus additional practice exercises will be posted to your address before the start of the course. The full four subjects can also be studied over two consecutive weeks and we will give you ample notice should we amend any dates or schedules in this respect.
How is the online course structured?
Each day we teach different topics or skills from the 8 Plus test, according to our structured program and the 8 Plus syllabus. Students are instructed in techniques showing them how to answer questions in the correct way, giving them the means to handle any new type of problem as they progress. From the materials sent beforehand, homework also forms a linchpin of the course, with students completing tasks, based on the instruction from each class session.
We carry out ongoing assessment throughout all of our courses, so we can let you know how likely it is for your child to pass, where they struggle, and under which circumstances success that will be most likely. We may suggest supplemental instruction via one-to-one classes if deemed necessary, and operate a strict policy whereby we only continue tuition for children who are suitable in terms of ability, potential and personality.

Where is the course delivered?
This course is delivered online and is controlled by our teaching managers, with instruction given by experienced tutors, 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, which ensures a dynamic environment for children to learn and also allows for each child to receive enough attention.
For class sessions, 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 – and thanks to our years of experience working with students internationally, we now have a track record of effective online tuition with children of all ages in many subjects.
Advances in digital technology have been empowering for the educational sphere and children are usually more engaged and get more attention from our online classes than they would anywhere else (including school!) For this reason, our lessons are delivered online in small groups of 2 – 4 children. This range enables the teachers to give one-to-one support whilst maintaining the group dynamic which adds support and encouragement from peers. Children tell us they like meeting other children from different schools who are also sitting the exam – working in a group helps children to become more comfortable and confident in a shorter time-frame.
When is the Online 8+ 5 Day Easter Course?
We run several one week courses throughout the year. Even though each course covers all the key topics necessary for exam preparation, course content differs in accordance with its set theme. Each week long course is focused on a different set of crucial skill sets that will greatly benefit your child in exams and in later life. We recommend your child repeat the 5-day course at different dates, so as to fully benefit from each of the weeks’ unique benefits.
