‘Demystifying the 11+, Pre-tests and 13+ Entrance Exams: Preparing Your Child for Senior School’

Are you familiar with the 11+? Do you feel on top of the 13+? Have you ever heard of the pre-test?

Do you feel that you have a good enough grasp of the secondary school entrance process to make your child’s transition from Prep School to Senior School as smooth as possible?

Don’t worry if not, we are here to help. This September, we are hosting a fantastic event for parents of children in Years 3, 4 or 5.

Ensuring that your child secures the best secondary school place for them can prove to be a challenging and daunting task. That is why we have arranged an exclusive evening event for parents to put your Senior School related concerns to rest.

We want to equip you with the necessary knowledge to make the optimum decision for your child, as you prepare for this pivotal step in their educational career.
At our event ‘Demystifying the 11+, Pre-tests and 13+ Entrance Exams: Preparing Your Child for Senior School’, you will have the opportunity to hear from all of our expert speakers, Vivienne Durham, Richard Harman and Nick Baker, Headteachers of Francis Holland Regents Park, Uppingham School and Wetherby Prep respectively in a ‘Q&A’ style session.

This is a fantastic opportunity to get a head start for the 11+, 13+ and pre-test processes, and develop a sound understanding of what is expected of your children in their upcoming examinations and interviews.

Tickets can be purchased for £25 per person, with all proceeds going to Chance UK, a wonderful charity that provides mentoring for underprivileged primary school children.

Date: Tuesday, 29th September, 2015
Time: Champagne reception from 6:30pm, talk to follow at 7pm
Location: Royal Thames Yacht Club, SW1X 7LF
