At British Tutors we offer a comprehensive academic programme to prepare our students and guide them through the application process for UK schools. From choosing the right school to navigating the interview and pre-tests, to preparing for the exams and then ensuring a smooth transition to the new school, we support our students and their families at all stages.
At British Tutors we pride ourselves on our knowledge and experience of the UK boarding school system. We have worked with the top UK boarding schools and our students have gained places at Winchester, Eton, Cheltenham Ladies College, Wycombe Abbey, Harrow and Marlborough College amongst many others.
Our tutorials follow the approach of the top schools in the UK with high academic standards, expert tutors and the best materials used. This can be a wonderful advantage both for British expatriates and for international families planning to send their children into the UK schooling system.
Once you become a British Tutors client, a dedicated team member will help advise and oversee the whole process of your child’s entrance to UK school.
The first stage of moving to a UK school is choosing the right school or schools to aim for. Our consultancy and advice service helps to shape your thoughts and understanding of the landscape every step of the way. Private consultations help parents to understand the scope of options available, to identify the right choice of schools for their individual child, to navigate the school application and admissions process and to plan an academic preparation programme. We never forget that choosing the right school for your child is the first step to a successful education.
Our rigorous academic assessments enable us to get to know each child individually. The detailed report allows us to see what areas we need to focus on in our preparation and how best to design the curriculum for each individual student to help them through the process from selecting the right school to starting their first day there.
Students applying for UK school entrance are required to attend interviews and sit exams, either Common Entrance at 11+ or 13+ or for preparatory schools at 7+ and 8+. British Tutors plans academic programmes to help prepare for these specific entrance tests. Working with our tutoring team in Hong Kong and our online tutors in the UK, we teach in the core subjects of English, maths and science and weave in other possible exam subjects such as Latin and French where required. Using past exam papers and insights from admissions offices, our specialist Common Entrance tutors plan and teach rigorous lessons with a high success rate. As part of our academic programmes, we also arrange mock interviews and mock exams where necessary.
The Summer Academy at Sunningdale is a unique UK summer school. For two weeks each summer, we offer the chance for 7-14 year olds to experience the very best British boarding school experience, perfect for those thinking of UK schooling.
With quintessentially English surroundings, a high ratio of staff to students, low student numbers and an exceptional level of teaching, it is the leading UK programme of its kind.
