11plus (11+) Grammar School Review in Kent then London??

It is reported that Kent County Council is going to review its 11-plus tests as its figures showed that 10% of offers at grammar schools went to pupils from private schools when fewer than 6% children in Kent are educated in private schools.

One has to ask, ‘What is going on?’ Parents are badgered by the media, politicians and papers everyday that they must do more for their children. Here we have a situation where parents are doing their level best by sending their child for 11plus tuition and then penalised by a Local Borough for exactly doing that and, in all this ‘hurrah’. No one seems to understand that Kent and it’s surrounding Boroughs are all in England and that their is one national education system. Why do politicians want to start segregating when its suitable to gain votes? Why can’t we all work for one common cause that will be benefit this country and it’s people.

In this case, we are looking at young innocent children whose parents happen to work hard, sacrifice their spare time to pay for the tuition fees and then once again only to find their child is to be held back .It is universally appreciated that children have a right to good quality education; it should not matter where they live only that they are capable of benefiting from it.

At The Learning Hub we have an excellent track record in helping children from the age of 6 to 16. We cover everything from KeyStage 1, KeyStage 2, Keystage 3, KeyStage 4 and GCSEs. As a tuition centre of Excellence specialising in 11plus tuition in Maths, English, Verbal Reasoning and Non Verbal Reasoning and have helped hundred of children to achieve their goal of gaining a place in a grammar school or an independent school.

Our advise is always the same to all the parents, don’t get distracted by the politicians, media, etc. Your child only has one life , let them live this to the full by giving them a good head start in their education by giving them good tuition. Check our website and let us help your child. Contact us on 020 8908 0123, now.

Ofsted & SATs – Tuition – London – Why?

Last night on Newsnight,  the chief inspector of schools and head of Ofsted, Sir Michael Wilshaw, condemned the fact that one in five pupils are leaving primary school without reaching the “national average” in English. This comment led to him been accused in the media of been out of touch on figures.

In all this, the media and the Ofsted chief seem to forget that children’s lives and eventually careers are at stake. It is important that everyone appreciates at grass root level that if a child is taught properly then that child has a better chance to lead a good life. Everytime we fail, it means that we have failed a  child and in this case, we have failed many children who instead of growing and thanking society; may now end up joining a group feeling negative as they feel that they have no future.

Education is not a game and should not be treated as a game, it is children’s lives we are dealing with. Children who do not have any hindsight experience like we do and in all intent and purpose trust us in doing the right thing for them. It is therefore our responsibility to ensure that every child is successful in their education. It is a duty of every teacher and person involved in education to ensure that they actively work towards that goal.

At The Learning Hub we do what we preach and set high standards on ourselves and through hard work, dedication and good planning help children take a positive step towards their education goal. Our SATs results are like our 11plus results which are like our GCSE results, majority achieving SATs level 5 or many children gaining places in great schools like Henrietta Barnet Girls School, Queen Elizabeths Boys School, Merchant Taylors’ Boys School, Dr Challoners Grammar school to name a few or 100% track record in our GCSE exams.

If you are concerned about your child’s education then ring us on 020 8908 0123 to find out why we have people come from different countries to experience our teaching or at least checkout our blog on ‘Only 11plus Centre in London using NLP’ to gain a diiferent perspective on education and achievement.
