Brexit Blues? Children bored at home? Why not try our Summer Camp?

 

Apart from a short vacation abroad or visiting family, children end up spending most of their summertime playing video games, watching TV or using a computer. Past summers will remind you of how bored your children become with all of that extra time they are left alone for. Any work would need to be supervised by you. Do you have the time? Former President Obama has highlighted the effects on children of a summer without learning. Here at the Learning Hub we support those hardworking parents who want their children to experience a fun summer without losing that all important knowledge they have worked hard to get.

“Students are losing a lot of what they learn during the school year during the summer.”

Barack Obama (September, 2010), NBC’s Today Show

 

During the summer many parents struggle with the extra financial costs, as well as the difficulty of trying to keep their children entertained. Here’s our top ten reasons why sending children to our Summer camp will benefit both children and parents!

1. Intensive tuition

2. Improved Grades

11+ Mock Exams: Give your child the advantage!

This is the last chance to sit an 11+ mock exam here at the Learning Hub before the real exams for entrance to Grammar and Independent schools for year 5 students begin this upcoming year.

Our papers consist of CEM/GL Assessment to fully prepare students for the actual exams ahead of time as well as allowing them to gain the valuable experience of exam conditions. Students increase their confidence through practice in real exam conditions supervised by qualified invigilators during our exams. This is an opportunity for students to overcome any last minute difficulties and become familiar with the exam procedure.

11+ Results showing the places and scholarships awarded to our students

At The Learning Hub, We prepare children for Grammar and Independent school tests and focus on Numeracy (maths), Literacy (English), Maths, Verbal Reasoning, and Non-Verbal Reasoning. After exams the papers are returned with the scores standardised so that parents and children are able to discuss any issues or gain valuable feedback with our mock exam papers in a meeting with the Headteacher. Our service has a two week turnaround time.

The exams for various schools have changed with competition tremendously high. Statistics show that children who have had practice sitting Mock exams are more:

  • Relaxed
  • Confident
  • Assertive
  • & Average 15% more in the actual paper.

Feedback from both children and parents shows that mock papers help them to overcome their fears of the real 11 plus exams.

Our Final 11+ Mock Exam is on the 5th August 2018 to reserve a place call us on 0208 908 0123.

Detailed focus on preparation during our Summer Workshops

To compliment the above, we are also running Four weeks of Summer workshops. These are intensive courses that provide students with a relaxed, fun setting to receive extra help before the real exams for the 11 plus take place. Our combination of mock exams and summer workshops has helped produce some spectacular results as seen above in our graph of the past eight years.

11+ Mock Exams June 2018 Session

11 plus mock exam was successful this weekend. Children were extremely excited and little nervous. The fear of exams is fading away slowly and gradually with each Mock exam.  Children are getting better and more confident but still many small mistakes which can easily take away their only chance to get through.

The Learning Hub 11plus mock exams offer children a unique experience of a simulated Grammar school 11plus exam conditions and excellent for a child’s preparation. Our experience has shown that children become very uncomfortable with the prospect of sitting an exam, especially when in a room filled with strangers. This frequently result in some distress or worry on the child and many good and able children then freeze up whilst doing their 11plus exams, causing them to fail when success was theirs for the taking. By sitting a number of our high quality 11plus mock exams, children are able to become familiar of the exam-type setting, this in turn reduces their worry and stress; allowing them to engage fully.

Two sessions have finished and three more to go (June, July and August) before the actual exam in September.

As we approach the final months of the preparation for the Grammar school exams, The Learning Hub is running its hugely successful 11+ Mock Exams in Maths, English & Verbal Reasoning. Each paper is designed to stretch the child utilising our unique 11plus IQ material to maximise this experience.

The exams for various schools have now changed and the competition increased tremendously. Statistics shows that children who have had experience of taking part in good Mock exams are more:

  • Relaxed
  • Confident
  • Assertive
  • & Average 15% more in the actual paper.

Spoke to few children and parents to get some feedback. It helps them to overcome the fear of 11 plus exam by doing these exams.

Next Mock Exam is on 3rd June 2018 to reserve you place call us now on 0208 908 0123

There is still time for three more sessions to get you ready for your big day.
