- helping parents choose the best private preparatory or pre-preparatory school for their child

We were very happy to have the choice between three strong schools, and believe we have chosen the best fit for Nicolas and Alexander. Thank you for all of your help – we couldn’t have done it without you.

Preparation for Entrance Exams

It is an unavoidable fact that, in order to gain entry to the most selective schools, many children are tutored to prepare them for entrance exams. Schools may say that they don’t want children to be specially coached, but the fact is that a child will inevitably be more comfortable and confident in any kind of assessed situation if a) they know what to expect and b) feel prepared.

A good tutor will quickly determine your child’s strengths and weaknesses and work with them to maximise their chances of success.

Tutoring takes place at all stages, including for entry to prep school and preparation for Common Entrance at 13+. It is quite common for children at highly competitive and academic day prep schools to also engage private tutors after school, although this would not be the case at a boarding school where children are encouraged to pursue other interests outside prep time in the evenings.

We work with some of the most highly regarded tutoring agencies in the UK and will be happy to advise you if you feel that your child would benefit from extra individual tuition. Please call us on +44 1732 368767 or fill in the Enquiry Form.
