Bournemouth celebrate their graduates!

Bournemouth grads

Our Bournemouth centre recently held a graduation celebration for their members who sat the entrance exam on Saturday 24th September.

They had party rings (it isn’t a party without party rings after all), snacks, certificates and the children made their own mortar board hats! The children also wrote down their greatest 11 Plus achievement – here are some of the things they said: 

   “Learning the best way to work out a question”

“Working with the awesome tutors”

“Meeting some lovely new friends”  

It was an amazing, buzzing celebration and we were so proud of all our members for all their hard work!

Parents celebrate

We asked the children whether they were glad that the exam was over – and as you can see, the parents put their hands up first! 

We were so happy to help and support the children with preparing for the entrance exams, as we know it can be a stressful time for all the family. Our 11 Plus and Entrance Exam course is open to all. We don’t pre-test; we welcome all children with the ambition and drive to go to grammar or independent school. To find out whether this could be the perfect option for you and your child, check out more info about the course.
