Do you offer tuition for the 11+ exam preparation? If so, when should my child start preparing for the exam?
We endeavour to provide a complete service and, yes, we do offer 11+ preparation. Please note, we currently do not offer the 11+ exam. Year 4 and 5 are the most significant years for preparation for the 11+ exam. We appreciate parental enthusiasm and therefore preparation can commence in Year 3.

What times does Sky Tuition Academy operate?
Lesson times vary, however, we try to ensure lessons begin as close to the time schools finish as possible. Therefore, lessons will commence at 3:30pm, 4:30pm and 5:30pm sharp. All lessons are up to two hours in duration. We recommend you arrive 15 minutes before each lesson.
