Our Year 5 course covers English, Mathematics, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning.

The course has a three stage structure, pioneered by us:

  • The Foundation stage confirms every child has the basic building blocks to succeed and includes rapid mental arithmetic, mental agility and a robust vocabulary.
  • The Common Core stage confirms that all the requirements common to the exam boards in the area are addressed first. This makes the child more versatile and preparation more agile should the exam board change with minimal notice.
  • The Specialisation stage in the final term is tailored to the exam board for the target school where all known nuances of the specific exam board are practised through exam preparation and mock exam practice.

All students will receive the same lessons during the first two terms. In the final term the timetable will be personalised and children will be placed in their chosen school or exam board groups to receive specialist training. This may mean a change to their time slot.


  • Lessons are 3 hours 20 minutes long (increasing in the final term depending on the school choices) and held once weekly from October to August.
