The Scholar's Course

These children work through the Scholar’s Workbooks, follow the Internet Classes and do the Daily Maths Sheet. Many from the Salisbury area will join me for Holiday Classes, Christmas Workshops and Mock Exams. Those children who follow this course are often on my waiting list for weekly classes but when they are offered a place generally elect to continue on the Scholar’s Course. The evidence from 11+ results from the last few years is that this is a successful route. I am currently working on a series of Internet Classes that will accompany the Scholar's Workbooks (click here) that will help to lessen the time that parents will have to spend going over homework, though there is no substitute for walking the walk with them. Many families choose to use the Scholar’s Workbooks in conjunction with the termly classes.


Weekly Classes

These children come to weekly classes during the term and then follow the Internet Classes and do the Daily Maths Sheet. Most will join me for Holiday Classes, Christmas Workshops and Mock Exams. These classes are in groups of six. I do not take bookings until 1st July 2017. There will be at least three lines open from 7am. Last year the places were filled by 7.55 am. The class times are

You can ask someone else to book in for you if you are not available to do so yourself or want a block booking. Last year a number of God-parents were called upon to phone in. There is no secret list. Nobody has been given, or will be given, a place before July 1st. Bribery will not work.

Whether you have me as a tutor or not and whatever school you end up going to, preparing for the 11+ will be one of the more memorable and intense times of your parenting. It will be full of triumphs and frustrations. A time when you will get to know each other as people with all the complexity which goes with that. It will set the foundations for the teenage years. It is a lovely, lovely time.

What to do before starting formal 11+ classes

1 The Daily Maths Sheet (click here).

2 Subscribe to my YouTube Channel (currently 374 videos).

3 Listen to story tapes together and discuss the possible outcomes (try the "Just William" series).

4 Read - anything. It doesn't have to be novels. The Guinness Book of Records, the back of cereal packets, Jeremy Clarkson will do just fine.

5 Try the free worksheets and download the first free Scholar's Book.

6 Practise following instructions e.g. cooking and craft activities.

7 Make things out of card and undo boxes for the cardboard recycling - 3D shapes constantly cause trouble.
