What some of our happy clients say about us

5 out of 5 stars

Bonny Chemlik, Year 6 11+ Mum

"Jacqui is an excellent teacher, expects excellence from her students and achieves it in their grades. The journey through lockdown hasn't been easy but she has made it so much easier. Thanks to Jacqui, Molly and Marcus for exceptional service, always with a smile."

Claire, Year 5 11+ Mum

"My son has been attending 11+ lessons here for sixteen months, he has grown in ability and confidence. Jacqui is an inspiring teacher and it is obvious to all that she clearly cares about the children. Thank you."

Saw & Hnin Tha, Year 5 11+ Parents

"Jacqui has offered a good learning environment for the children and the children love getting presents at the end of the class for their work. I would definitely recommend Jacqui to others not only for 11+ but also for general support with English and Maths."

Mrs Lawrence, Year 4 Grandmother

"My grand-daughter gets the teacher time and attention at Jacqui’s that she doesn’t get at school"

Becca, Year 5 11+ Mum

"Jacqui’s teaching is excellent and at a very high level. There is so much attention to detail provided in the English, Maths and Verbal Reasoning tuition."

Dan Woodruff, Year 4 Dad

"Before attending this centre, she was very capable. With the support of the centre the most notable change has been a massive increase in her self-confidence. The centre has a very high success rate in getting children through the 11+ assessments."
