Overview

Summer school classes are designed to help students prepare for the 11 plus exam for those about to embark on their A-levels or as general preparation for the return to secondary school. Whilst it is important for students to take some time to rest and relax over the summer holidays, it is equally vital for them to retain all the key information they have amassed over the previous two years.

North Finchley Tutors 11+ Intensive course

At NFT, we are pleased to offer our intensive revision and testing Course for 11+ candidates this summer. The Course will take place from 12th to 22nd August 2019. The lead up to the entrance exams is stressful and though students may have been working with a tutor and/or at home, some topics or subjects will surface late on as the papers get harder. Our team of qualified and experienced teachers are extremely experienced and after an extremely successful intensive course last year, we are again running the 11 Plus Summer Crash Course in August for 2 weeks to move students from good to fantastic.
