Our lead 7 Plus tutor Judith sets out the pros and cons of online tuition for 5 and 6 year olds. While there can be the odd technical glitch, students are getting increasingly tech savvy and online tuition widens access to top tutors, wherever you are.
Home-schooling is becoming an increasingly popular choice for parents all over the UK and internationally, and having worked both in schools and with children in their own homes, it is clear that children are able to access a well-rounded education whatever the setting! These tips aim to give some practical advice to those who are either currently, or considering, home-schooling their children.

In our opinion, there is no need to hire a tutor for "Four Plus" exams. All 4+ exams are based on active learning, engagement in tasks and an ability to show co-operation, manners and tact in social environments. These are all skills which can be developed at home through good parenting and common sense approaches. The following is a guide containing simple tips for parents to help their children at home.
Sitting the 7+ and 8+ exam can be a daunting prospect, so it is important that children become familiar with working under strict time constraints before the exam. There is significant competition for entry into schools at both 7+ and 8+. For example, for every one place at Westminster Under or Colet Court, 8 or more boys sit the entrance exam.
