Entrance Exam Tuition

It takes a very particular skill set to be a successful entrance exam tutor. We have hand selected and trained a team of tutors who specialise in preparing children for both grammar and independent school entrance exams from 4+ through to 13+. Our team will support you and your child through the process, from choosing which schools to apply for, to teaching your child what they will need to know to succeed in the exams and at interview. Our tutors often continue to support their students through to the date they start at their new school, and sometimes beyond. 
Advice on which schools to apply to, whether to apply for scholarships and other awards and what your child needs to do  in order to be successful is available through a consultation and feedback report with Knowledge Seekers’ Director, Alexandra. The feedback you receive includes specific recommendations about the content and frequency of tuition, as well as who would be the best tutor for your child. 
We have been preparing students successfully for entry to some of London’s top schools for many years, and Alexandra and Francis have trained each of our entrance exam tutors in methods and techniques which have a proven track record of success. The result is focused, highly structured tuition which covers all the subjects that your child will be tested in, and is tailored to the particular schools you have chosen to apply to. Exam technique coaching is an important part of the tuition, and your tutor will set weekly targets and homework as well as recommending books from particular reading lists and areas to work on with your child outside of the tuition.





In addition to our one to one entrance exam tuition, we have developed a number of popular, complementary courses. Our weekly Young Writers' Workshop is particularly relevant for children in years 4 and 5 who will be taking 11+ exams and will be expected to produce a piece of creative or descriptive writing as part of their assessment. 

We also run intensive week long courses for entrance exam students during half terms and school holidays, which give a much needed boost in confidence and exam technique at important milestones in the student’s timetable. Course sizes are always kept to a maximum of 10 students to allow for plenty of individual attention and a tailored approach. 

Entrance exams can seem daunting to a child so our creative, innovative workshops are led by experienced entrance exam tutors and are structured so that they are engaging as well as rigorous and stretching for your child.

With this approach, we have seen large improvements in children’s exam technique and academic performance over the space of just one week, with parents noticing increases in their child’s confidence and ability across all subjects. 

Alternatively, if your summer calendar means that you are not able to attend one of our 7+ or 11+ intensive workshops, but are still keen to know if your child is on track for particular schools, our one hour academic consultations are highly recommended.
