Feedback on our 8 Plus Tutors

"My son has enjoyed working with William and looks forward to his sessions with him. He is great at engaging my son and helps him see the goal and to help him feel he has the tools to achieve them. We feel William has been great for our son's confidence and to feel he is ready to take on the 8+. William has a lovely manner - directed but not too stern, and a kind and encouraging approach."

Mother of a Year 2 student

"We just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help over the years, and especially recently. Our son was offered a place at Westminster Under, Sussex House, The Dragon and Wetherby Prep - a 100% hit rate. I don't think it would have been possible without some help, and importantly we felt like all that talent and effort was aimed in the right direction - which is largely thanks to you! We'll doubtless be coming back to you soon for advice on Public Schools, but for now we're in the wonderful position of having our son on his way to our first choice prep school."

7 Plus or 8 Plus Exam?

Historically boys would sit for the 8+ and girls for the 7+. This was based around the fact that it was traditionally accepted that boys mature a little later than girls at this age. Assessing them later meant that they had more time to develop and show their true potential. However, nowadays many schools offer both 7+ and 8+ entry and as such parents have the option to consider which might be most suitable.
