Pembroke is experienced in supporting students for prep school entrance to top London day schools and prep schools outside of the city, many of which have flexible boarding options. Learning focuses on English and maths, and introduces students to verbal and non-verbal reasoning which are tested at some prep schools and form a key part of 11+ and 13+ admissions. At this age, schools are looking for students who display a positive outlook and an eagerness to learn. That’s why our tutors first and foremost serve as mentors, inspiring their students to enjoy learning and take the initiative to broaden their understanding of the world around them. Academic ability is important but students also need to have interests outside of their studies and actively pursue hobbies so that they can become a contributing member of their senior school. Whether it is sport, music, art or drama, our tutors encourage students to pursue and practice the extra-curricular activities that interest them.
At this age, instilling students with a confidence in their abilities is vital to their progression. That is why our 7/8+ tutors are engaging and compassionate, always encouraging students to come up with their own ideas, share their beliefs and ultimately, believe in themselves.
To date, we have helped students attain entrance to the following prep schools (among others): Westminster Under School, Thomas’s Kensington, Thomas’s Battersea, Thomas’s Fulham, Chepstow House, Kensington Prep, Bute House, Wetherby School, Hill House, American School. Garden House School, St Paul’s Juniors.
