Why Brain Train?

Louise is a real teacher with extensive knowledge and experience of 11+ entrance requirements for independent and grammar schools. Other tuition centers use tutors, consultants, supervisors, and teachers of other subjects.  These are all people who are not teachers trained to teach this age group.  At Brain Train your child’s 11+ course will always be run by Louise, who is a specialist, fully qualified Key Stage 2 trained teacher. Louise graduated from Oxford Brookes University in 1995 gaining a Bachelor of Education with English. She now has 20 years of experience getting children to realise their potential and pass the 11+ examinations.

-Group tuition for 11+ applicants has proved itself to be beneficial for all students.

-The group is a safe, nurturing environment, ideal for pupils to gauge the level of competition, giving them an understanding of the standards expected, thus encouraging them to improve their skills.

-Children feel they are part of a team, and not isolated which happens with one to one tuition.

-All work is marked and scores are displayed on a notice board, which encourages friendly competition.

-This is not possible to achieve when children have individual tuition.

Our courses provide everything that you and your child will need when preparing for any 11+ entrance exams.
