This course is for Year 5 children planning to sit secondary school entrance exams. The children will be prepared for a variety of test types both in terms of knowledge and exam technique.
Lessons last for 2 hours and 45 minutes weekly based on maths and English. Maths classes include data handling and non-verbal – part of CEM type 11+ tests – and English sessions incorporate verbal reasoning.
In addition, the children enjoy a short, informal session of brain training activities : puzzles, quizzes & vocabulary exercises. These tasks practice reasoning skills tested by some selective schools.
Our aim is to equip our children with whatever skills they need to achieve success, not only in fiercely competitive entrance examinations but beyond, for whatever their secondary education has in store for them.
Places are limited to 8 children per class to ensure an ideal blend of individual attention and friendly competition.
All coursework and homework is included in the course fee. Children are provided with an Examberry bag, folders, vocabulary book, suitable reading material and all relevant published Examberry materials.
The course runs for a whole academic year from Sep 17 to Jul 18.
