When we started looking for a tutor for our son’s 11+ preparation few months ago, our biggest concern was that our son would feel the process as a mission.Following to the trial lesson, our son mentioned that he liked Surinder and Parm as they were very helpful, taught the subjects clearly and made him enjoy the session. It’s already been 4 months since he started. He’s looking forward to being there on Saturdays as he enjoys learning new stuff.We are very impressed with The Learning Academy. It’s an outstanding tuition centre. Having feedback after each lesson helps us to understand good and weak points with our son’s improvement.Highly recommended.read more

My daughter attended The Learning Academy leading up to her 11+, she loved every second, and it was never a chore getting her out of the house in the morning.The team at The Learning Academy gave excellent feedback throughout the process so we went into the test with confidence. They were also very helpful and flexible on those occasions when we needed to reschedule sessions.I recommend them without reservation and my youngest daughter will be booked in next year for sure!read more

We are very impressed with The Learning Academy, the family atmosphere, small groups with qualified teachers, positive encouragement and detailed instant feedback have allowed our son to thrive in a way we haven’t experienced elsewhere. He has come on markedly since he started attending and wants to go to his sessions which is a joy. Highly recommended.read more

My ten-year-old daughter's review, in her own words:"The Learning Academy have helped a lot with maths which was my worst subject. It is now one of my favourites. I have asked my mum to continue with them and she said, "yes", which is why I am still going and it is a nice treat after school."On asking my daughter what was the best thing about TLA, she replied: "They're really really nice and explain things really well".My own review: I believe one of the greatest advantages an adult can engender in a child is to allow them to create strong self esteem. Staff at The Learning Academy seem to naturally have the ability to encourage my daughter to believe in herself. A joy of learning and ensuing success is inevitable in this environment. I now have a child who enjoys learning and is starting to believe she can "do it". Priceless.read more

This is a place for serious learning. I sense a culture of hard work and dedication from a team of very experienced teachers. My daughter's confidence has improved since we started lessons with TLA. I have received very good advice, and the best thing is each child's progress, the topics they learn are individually monitored. They bring a child's learning to the context, considering what's going on at school. Interventions are planned while the parent is also included within this process. One more thing I noticed is children are taught at their level, BUT unlike the schools, the culture of 'this is what the child is capable of' is not how it works. There is hope for further progress, potential for flourishing. My experience is positive.read more

Our daughter has been attending The LAT for some months and during this time we have observed a great improvement in her overall performance. The teaching is paced at each child's ability/speed and areas for improvement are identified and focused on. For any parent considering extra lessons for their ward, why not give LAT a try? . We will highly recommend Pat and his team.read more

11 Plus Tutoring

At the Learning Academy we have expert 11 Plus teachers who are familiar with the components of the 11 Plus exam. The children use a variety of resources to prepare for the 11 Plus including papers written by the TLA teachers and the teachers have also created the TLA Cloud learning platform (these resources are unique to The Learning Academy). We teach the skills the children need to sit each component of the 11 Plus exam as well as build confidence and develop independence with tackling the questions.

11+ Mock Tests

The Learning Academy offers 11 Plus Mock Tests in June, July and August. These have been written by our teachers at the TLA and follow the format and timings of the 11 Plus exam.  The level of difficulty has been developed by teachers who have a deep knowledge of the selective education system and the style of questions. Each area of the 11 Plus is covered therefore there are no surprises for the children when they take the exam in September. The 11 Plus mock exams are a great way to learn, consolidate knowledge and refine exam technique before the real thing.
