11+ winter workshops: keep your child’s mind active this holiday season!

Christmas is a wonderful time of year, full of the joys of celebration and feasting surrounded by beautiful decorations. Often academic work is avoided for the array of Christmas activities on offer or just to indulge in a fun filled break. However, if students disengage from learning activities, there are drops in their performance and a slowing of educational progress.

The summer slump is well known in Britain to affect a student’s performance at school after they go back from the long six week holiday. A gap in learning often affects those children whose parents work, are busy looking after other siblings or a variety of other reasons which prevent them from keeping their child’s mind active with learning activities.

We at the Learning Hub pride ourselves on being able to keep young minds prepared for those vital exams the 11+ that are just round the corner for many children. Our preparation programme starts from Year 4 and goes all the way up to Year 6 when students sit the exams at the grammar or independent school of their choice. Experts say that the more time a child has spent preparing, learning new skills and practising them the better the do in the actual exam. You cannot begin this preparation early enough and with our fun setting here at the Hub our students learn while enjoying their time here.

Dates available: Thursday 27th & Friday 28th December
