The JK Educate Workshops have been designed to help children achieve to the best of their ability. They complement 11+ tutoring and our Mock Exams in the meeting the challenges of these exams. They are also a fun yet focused way to learn!

Our top 11+ maths and English specialists run these targeted maths and English workshops to provide the knowledge and practice required to succeed in the 11+ exams. With the introduction of CEM and the attempts to make 11+ exams “tutor-proof” it’s even more essential for children to have the confidence in what they will face on the day.
Maths and English workshops are offered on the same day to allow students to attend one or the other, or both.
Each workshop is designed to complement the others and are specific to the timeline for the exams, covering all the essentials for the state selective school exams in September and the independent school exams in January. It is not necessary to attend them all to gain benefit from each individual sessions.
