Getting stuck on creative writing?

There are several courses, planned and delivered by qualified teachers, available to suit all pupils’ needs.

Advanced Maths is suitable for high achievers in year 5. If you feel that your child has mastered key stage 2 maths content and is tired of not being challenged enough in lessons or in homework tasks, then this advanced course is ideal.

Students will have the opportunity to spend time on challenging problems, learn to solve complex problems and engage with puzzles and tasks that stretch further than the regular curriculum. We find this is an enjoyable course for learners who are ready to take on more challenging maths material.

I wanted to say a big thank you to the whole team at Hatch End for everything you did for our son. Also an extra big thank you to Chris for the extra time and attention that you gave us when we needed it. You have a great formula for success at the 11+. The lessons are well organised and structured. The homework is well organised and very clear, which is a massive help for the parents too. I would highly recommend the mock exams to anyone. Without those, we would not have had the same result. The detailed feedback enabled us to focus on any areas of weakness. By the time the summer came around last year, he'd suddenly grown up, he was a real self-starter and would wake up every morning during the holidays and just crack on with his work. He peaked just before the exam. We let our son choose the school he wanted to go to and was offered a place at his first choice, St Clement Danes. He is very happy. Thank you!
