Geek School Tutoring 11 Plus Intensive Course in Bromley

Geek School 11 Plus Intensive Course is running again this August. It’s the last few weeks before the grammar school tests begin in September, so it’s a crucial time to revise and fill in any knowledge gaps. Children sitting the Kent, Bexley, Medway, Sutton, Wandsworth, Newstead and St Olave’s tests will do well to get intensive tuition during the summer months to firm their knowledge and work through any gaps in their learning. If your child is sitting the independent school exams later in the year, this course will also work wonders for them, as the curriculum is largely the same whether they sit a grammar or independent school exam.

Every year, we have children joining the course whose parents have been looking for a private tutor in the Norwood area, private tuition in Bromley or 11 plus support in Beckenham – many come even further than that! So, if you’re looking for anintensive summer 11 plus course, look no further.

What is covered in the 11 Plus Intensive Course

The 11 Plus Intensive during the summer holidays course covers all the four subjects in the 11 Plus: English, maths, verbal reasoning and non verbal reasoning. All exams types are covered (i.e. GL Assessments and CEM papers).

11 Plus Intensive Dates and Times

Tuesday 15th August to Thursday 17th August 2017 (3 days)
Tuesday 22nd August to Thursday 24th August 2017 (3 days)

Time: 9am-5pm

Cost: £150 per week

Lunch: Not included (please pack a packed lunch)

Location: Bromley

The Success of the 11 Plus Intensive

Lasy year, many of our students on the 11 Plus Intensive Course excelled in exams for high-profile private schools (gaining scholarships, too), including Dulwich College, Trinity, Whitgift, Eltham College, St Dunstan’s, Colfe’s, Sydenham Girls, Old Palace Christ Hospital and more! We also had great success in the grammar school tests for Kent, Bexley, Sutton, Newstead and St Olave’s. All those who were successful in the grammar school tests attended the 11 Plus Intensive.

The Geek School 11-Plus Intensive is run in very small groups, so book early. Call or text Joycellyn on 02086583239 to discuss our child’s needs today.

Are You Looking for an 11 Plus Intensive Course in Bromley for Your Child?

There are just a few weeks to go before grammar schools start their 11 Plus tests. And there a just handful of months before private (independent) school exams start. Most children are knuckling down and doing a few papers a week at this time of year, but it can be quite a juggle with childcare arrangements over the summer holidays and work committments. If you’re looking for an 11 plus summer course to help your child through the coming weeks, why not consider the Geek School 11 Plus Intensive Course?

How the 11 Plus Intensive Course Prepares Children for the 11 Plus Exams

If your child is struggling to remember core maths topics, has inconsistent scores, or can’t seem to get a proper handle on their verbal or non verbal reasoning, the Geek School 11-Plus Intensive could be just the revision they need to get them on the right track to success. We see the same set of issues in children every year, and have a tried and tested method to help children perfect their work so they are in with a good chance of meting the required grades to pass their 11 Plus exams.

What the 11 Plus Intensive Course Covers

Covering all four subjects (English, maths, verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning), during the Geek School 11 Plus Intensive course children will revise the core subjects required for success in their exams, plus learn invaluable exam techniques and timing strategies.

Most children who attend the 11 Plus Intensive course see no less than a 10-20% boost in their scores, some see much more than this (ip to 30% in some cases!). The intensive course sets them on the right course for the rest of their revision.

The Geek School 11-Plus Intensive is so-called because it runs from 9am to 5pm across three days, for two weeks. We revise the core topics, practise papers – and go over corrections. As if that’s not enough, they also get homework everyday. With this much revision, you can see why our tutees do so well. The added bonus of being among their peers (the course is run in small groups), means that children feel a sense of camaraderie while they work hard through the 11-plus curriculum. They don’t feel as if they are the only child in their class or year group who is sat at home doing papers, while everyone else is seemingly having fun. It’s a win-win.

Should your child sit the Kent or Bexley test?

We all want the best for our children, and given the choice, all children should have access to the best schools and wouldn’t need to sit the Kent or Bexley test to give them access to such a school. All schools should provide the same standard of education, and they should all be free – but in the real world, it’s a different story. Read More
