St Albans’ 11 Plus students graduate!

September 08, 2017

Members of the 11 Plus course at our St Albans centre are set to take the exams on 9th September, so the team celebrated their last day of the course with a graduation ceremony!

St Albans 11 Plus graduation

Many of our members will sit the South West Herts Consortium Exam on Saturday 9th September, and the team at our our St Albans centre planned a fun event at the end of their last 11 Plus session! All of the children were delighted to receive ‘good luck’ postcards in the post beforehand, and the atmosphere in the centre was buzzing for the graduation ceremony at the end of the lesson.

The event began with the Exam Technique workshop and parents were invited into the centre for the last 20 minutes. The ceremony was very official and the tutors shared their experiences from their actual graduations. Everyone was asked if they were looking forward to the exam being over and lots of hands went up – parents included! Centre Director Jamie congratulated every child for all the hard work they have put in during the course and the resilience they have shown. The children we reminded that although the exams are important, it’s just one short test and it won’t show how amazing and individual every one of our members are. The children were then invited up one by one to shake hands with our tutors, be presented with their graduation hats and pose for pictures for the parents and guardians. The team absolutely loved the session and a lot of our members are ready to start working towards secondary school preparation!
