Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to pay an admin/registration fee?
There is a £10 admin/registration charge payable for each child. Sessions that are missed are non-refundable under any circumstance. This is to keep our prices as low as possible and ensures your child benefits from our program of study.
How does STA compare to other providers?
Sky Tuition Academy is unique and provides a service that no other company offers. We understand the pressure placed on students to succeed is significant and that is why we offer tuition in an environment that they are both familiar and comfortable with. The greatest difference with Sky Tuition Academy compared to other providers is that our tuition is not generalised. Our unique business model supports students with their current school studies. Example: we know of centre’s that have taught algebra the following term to the school. This defeats the purpose of tuition as far as we are concerned.
How often and where is tuition available?
As an external service provider, Sky Tuition Academy recommends at least one lesson per week. You then have the option of a one or two hour lesson.
What happens if my child misses a lesson?
In the unfortunate event your child is not able to attend a lesson, you will be able to reschedule for another day either by phone or email. 24 hours notice is required.
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 is the admissions deadline for students who wish to study full time?

Students applying for the forthcoming academic year (September 2018- June 2019) must apply before the commencement of each term.

Do you offer home tuition?
