In our second course of the year, we are looking to fully introduce and begin to establish the core concepts and fundamentals of the 8+. In maths, we are looking for children to be accurate and confident in their maths basics and to be able to begin tackling the more advanced topics. In English, we will begin to go that little bit deeper, helping children to develop their understanding and provide more detailed answers and responses to exam-style questions.
Led by experienced EPP tutors and former teachers, this course will provide a programme of skills-based study using exclusive EPP materials specifically create for this course. As well as a week of rigorous learning, there will be added take home material for you to work on with your child after the course, to consolidate and reinforce. A short report will be prepared at the end of the course, so you will see how your child has performed and the areas they will need to focus on in the coming months, providing invaluable structure for your 8+ journey.
Our courses are taught in small groups in a fun and lively atmosphere. The aim is to build your child’s confidence and skills with plenty of encouragement and positive reinforcement.
We’ve been running these courses for a number of years and we know exactly what is required to succeed at 8+ in the top schools. Previous course attendees have gone on to gain places at a number of top schools, including Dulwich College Junior School, King’s Wimbledon, St Paul’s Juniors, Sussex House and Westminster Under.
