Current Year 5 Pre-Season Brain Training

Please see below a copy of the letter which went out via ISAMS this afternoon:

Dear Year 5 Parents

As you will no doubt be aware, the local authority 11+ exam are scheduled to take place this year on the weekend of 12 and 13 September 2020.

With this in mind, we would like to invite this year’s Year Five children in for three Pre-Season Brain Training Sessions on 25, 26 and 27 August. These will run from 9.00am until 12.45pm each day.

The children will spend each morning with their familiar Crescent teachers, including Mrs Forth, Mrs Webb and me, getting them back into gear and ready for their exams. Each day there will be taught sessions focusing on the four strands of the 11+; verbal reasoning, non-verbal reasoning, maths and English comprehension. Needless to say, these skills will also be useful for their Princethorpe exams later in the year (these have been moved to January 23), as well as any other independent school exams they may be entered for.

Children will be expected to arrive in school smartly dressed with a mid-morning snack. They do not need to wear school uniform.

These sessions will be in addition to the revision packs that we send home at the end of the Summer Term. I am pleased to say that there will be no charge for attendance.

Please indicate if you would like to sign up by completing the form link.

Best wishes


Joe Thackway
