Rated ‘Excellent’ by our parents

Diya got a high score in the 11+ entrance exams after attending Cohort Tuition, and we are confident that she will get a place in our preferred Grammar School. The Cohort Tuition holiday Revision & Mock classes were very useful and Diya was able to consolidate her knowledge. The staff are friendly and approachable. There are regular tests and updates. We are continuing to send Diya to Cohort Tuition for year 6 and she will also be attending from year 7 onwards. The class sizes are small and there is a review after every class which is recorded in a booklet that children take home to show parents.

My son Connor attended Cohort Tuition in preparation for his 11+ exams. He loved his time there, his tutors made learning fun and really brought Connor along. Connor was fully prepared for his exams and he's achieved some great scores, we can't thank Cohort enough. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for tuition. Prices are also very reasonable.
