The Year 6 programme works best for those who have done the Year 5 programme as we focus on timed paper practice. We extend our teaching in this term to the highest level with difficult algebra, comprehensions and complex creative writing techniques so they learn to excel and stand out in an exam situation.
While we will always try to help parents at the last minute (and have done so in the past with some success) we strongly recommend that you start your child in year 4 or 5 so that they have the best chance of being ready for all the challenges the entrance exams throw at them.
