As well as our usual tutoring, we annually offer extras during the Summer and at the beginning of the Autumn term to support our pupils further and to reduce the anxiety surrounding exams and interviews. Please note, the majority of these provisions are only available for Elevate Eleven pupils, but you are welcome to sign up for our mock tests if spaces are available, even if your child doesn’t attend tutoring with us.
Mock Tests – open to all
Each year, we run Mock Tests to help prepare children for the experience of taking an exam so they don’t find it too daunting when they experience ‘the real thing’. We use exam papers that are unable to be purchased online ‘normally’ so they won’t have seen them before and we give you detailed question by question feedback which is particularly useful to highlight gaps.
In 2023 these mock tests are on the mornings of 2nd September and the 14th October at Hinchley Wood secondary school exam room, from 9.30-11.30am (arrive by 9.15am). Mock Tests are charged at £100 per date, which includes 2 exam papers and detailed written feedback.

Catch Up Reasoning
For children who haven’t done Verbal and Non-Verbal reasoning with us and know they need it for the schools they are applying for. These sessions are 1 hour and 30 minutes at the usual tutoring rate (£27 Per hour). Please note, this course requires 6 sessions to complete.
Advanced Maths Workshop
This is aimed mainly at the children who are targeting the state grammar schools. It will be led by a maths specialist and the work will be aimed at just above year 6 level so is not for children who find the current level tricky. These sessions are £60 for 2 hours and 15 minutes.
Interview Practice takes place with a member of staff at a local independent school who specialises in interview preparation. This is charged at £30 which includes a 10 minute interview and 10 minute feedback with a parent, giving targets for improvement, then a further 5 minutes to repeat some of the answers based on the feedback. You will be sent a preparation sheet in advance of the interview and your child is advised to research details about their first choice school.
Timed Paper Practice
In order to get back into the swing of things at the end of the summer holiday period, we run timed paper practice sessions at the Refresh Centre 129, Walton Road East Molesey (KT8 0DT). There is a teaching element in these sessions as well and some 121 support may be able to be given. This is charged at £75 for 3 hours (from 10am – 1pm)
