What is the 8 Plus Easter Course?
The 8+ Easter Course is an inspiring and enjoyable 4 day course designed to build confidence and knowledge in the imperative subjects needed to pass the 11+ exams: Mathematics, creative writing, comprehension, non verbal reasoning and verbal reasoning. Unlike previous courses, this course aims to connect children’s understanding in Maths and English to Verbal/Non Verbal Reasoning so students can truly achieve mastery in the subjects. In addition, we will be helping children implement vital exam techniques so they can boost their scores in exam situations.
This course is suitable for children preparing for the independent schools in and around London. We have successfully prepared over 800 children over the past 12 years for schools such as: St. Paul’s, Wetherby, Latymer Upper, Dulwich College, King’s College, Bute House, Westminster, City of London and much more…
How is our course structured?
The Easter Course is a 4 day course 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. The first two days of the course are dedicated to mathematics and non-verbal reasoning. The last two days of the course focus on comprehension, creative writing and verbal-reasoning.
Our classes are intentionally limited in size to ensure students can thrive in a dynamic small group setting, fostering active participation and personalized attention. Additionally, children benefit from intimate one-on-one instruction, tailored to address their individual weaknesses and enhance their learning experience. All classwork, homework, mock exams, assessments, online practice questions/assessments are included.
A mock exam takes place during the course, so we can identify children’s weaknesses and respond accordingly by helping fill in the gaps or extending their knowledge to a greater depth. After the course, 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 Easter holidays, especially as so many students have missed out on schooling over the past few years due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 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.
