School entrance experience

Holly has worked with children aiming to attend the following schools:

I have helped three students to gain scholarships at King’s College Canterbury and five others to gain places. I have helped four students to gain scholarships at Tonbridge School and eight others to gain places. One of my pupils achieved a scholarship to Harrow School last year and his English Mark was particularly commended by the examiners. I have been 100% successful for my pupils at Common Entrance English and the English result is often one of their top grades. One of my former pupils who I helped to achieve an academic scholarship at Sevenoaks School has recently started at Cambridge University, and a former pupil at Benenden School who I mentored recently graduated from Oxford.
