Our 11+ students have their sights set on competitive, selective secondary schools. If your child has upcoming exams, here are some final tips for 11+ preparation.  📑 Read the test information with your child. Outline the time, location, and exam room that your child will be taking the test in. Run through the exam format and equipment they will need.  ❓Read the questions carefully. Encourage your child to read every question carefully as they work through the test. They can underline the key words in the instructions before they start an answer.  ⏰ Keep an eye on time. Practice past papers under timed conditions in these last few weeks. The invigilator should let them know when they’re half way through, which will help them to work out if they need to work more quickly or have time to slow down.  💭 If in doubt, make a guess. By design, the 11+ is a challenging exam. It’s used by schools to identify children who are working within the top 25% of their cohort (or the top 10% for some particularly competitive schools). This means that no matter where your child's strengths lie, there will still be questions that they struggle to answer.  Remind your child not to spend too long on very tricky questions. Make an educated guess and move on.  💡Maintain focus. Unless your child has specific special educational needs that have been disclosed to the target school in advance, it's highly likely that they will be taking the exam in a room with lots of other candidates.  On the day, remind your child to avoid distractions and to keep their eyes on the test paper and the clock.  Wishing you the very best of luck! 🍀  #11plus #exam #exampreparation #prepschool #independentschool #boardingschool

It’s always a pleasure to get to know new home school families and to watch as our students, many who have struggled in a school environment, grow, and thrive.

We hope our families and students are feeling refreshed after the Summer holidays and looking forward to going back to school. The start of a new academic year can be challenging, particularly for students who are moving to a new school, or making the jump from Key Stage 3 to 4, or GCSE to A Levels.  We’ve included a few tips on how to smooth the transition after the Summer holidays and securing a strong September start.  💛 Speak positively about school and the new academic year - help your child to embrace challenges and opportunities for learning.  🗓️ Set up a homework and/or revision timetable, taking into consideration extracurricular activities, socialising and other commitments.  🗣️ Encourage your child to talk to their teacher, parent or tutor if they haven’t understood something and need it explaining again.  📒 For GCSE and A Level students in particular, organisation is key. Print off exam specifications, past papers and mark schemes, and have folders for each subject. This will allow students to keep on top of their notes and make revision much easier during exam seasons.  📚 Encourage your child to use their independent study periods wisely. It’s a good opportunity to consolidate subject knowledge and complete any outstanding homework tasks.  Please don’t hesitate to get in touch at contactus@goldencircletutors.co.uk if your child needs any support! ✨  #backtoschool #students #teachers #newacademicyear #newterm #secondaryschool #boardingschool #prepschool #londonmums
