We aim to provide firm foundations in knowledge alongside challenge for all children, which will also complement learning in school.
*Please note that if your child joins partway through the year, they will need to do some catch-up learning at home, preferably with some adult support.
Galore Park revision guides provide the foundation for practice exercises, alongside homework and assessments based on the GL assessment criteria.
Vocabulary knowledge forms a significant part of the 11+ test, so high frequency words and an online platform is provided to encourage and enhance your child's learning of new words. This will support their learning in school.
Weekly homework tasks are provided to ensure children have the opportunity to consolidate new skills.
A monthly assessment provides your child with the test practice needed for the big day, and anonymised data sheets provide you with an idea of how your child is faring against the cohort.
This four-day course in August is an add on to the year's programme. The first three days will include bespoke revision and test practice, to support children in filling any gaps in their knowledge and to practise the trickier skills in the test. With well-being at the core of what we do, we also feel that it's crucial for children to have a safe space to share and work through feelings and nerves around the test itself. Led by a children's counsellor, the fourth day will include discussions, mindfulness, art-based therapy and a specialist test technique toolbox for children to draw from on the day.
