Education

St James Boys School and the Contemplative Approach into men has been to provide a distinctive education, uniting a philosophic approach to the development of life skills and academic excellence.

Over recent years, parents have come to appreciate that in future, their sons will need something different to help them live and enjoy life to the full, to be at peace with themselves and of service to all. The St James response to turning boys

The school has experienced unprecedented demand for this philosophically inspired education and as it moves into its third academic year at Ashford, Surrey, it finds that the contemplative approach to modern education is being sought increasingly by discerning parents and there is much interest in the St James model. The school has an enlightened selection procedure, emphasising character along

with academic potential, with or without learning support. Sport and extracurricular activities have also flourished at St James. The headmaster, Mr David Boddy, will take up his elected position as Chairman of the SHMIS organisation in September and the school is also a member of the ISA and of The International Boys’ School Coalition. Ashford Station is just 8 minutes down the line from Twickenham and there are handy bus routes from the Richmond and Kingston areas.

Tutors 11+ Examinations and Summer Preparation courses One of Britain’s leading tutoring service providers, Fleet Tutors, has noted that the fastest growing trend is for coaching for the 11+ grammar school entrance test, especially now that many grammar schools hold their entrance exams earlier in the autumn term school. The industry also reports a doubling in demand for tutors to help seven and eight year-olds with private preparatory school entrance. Recent results show that over 80% of students exceeded their predicted scores in public exams when a reputable tuition provider is commissioned. Mylene Curtis, Managing Director of ‘Fleet Tutors’, says “that parental feedback following our intensive, small group ‘11+ Examination Preparation Courses’ is overwhelmingly positive, with parents reporting excellent results and many students receiving offers from their first choice schools. In an increasingly competitive world, parents are often willing to support their 10/11yrs olds with additional tuition during the school holidays to ensure that that much prized offer of a place at their preferred school is achievable.” Demand for support in boosting a child’s 11+ results, has been met with a sudden growth of intensive, small group revision courses. Children experience fast-paced, focused and intensive tuition with the vast majority achieving an increase of at least one grade when a reputable provider is used. Typically, 11+ exam preparation courses are designed for small groups of 10 and 11year olds – with a maximum class size of 5 or 6 learners. Most course providers offer the standard practice of ensuring children are well rehearsed in completing passed examination papers, however, Fleet Tutors has also developed its own comprehensive learning materials to support their targeted revision programmes in Chiswick, West London, and also in Farnborough, Hampshire. “We should have approached Fleet Tutors earlier! The sessions were helpful and my son has increased confidence for the exam having attended your revision course.” (Parent, Chessington, Surrey) For further information and bookings call 0208 580 3911 or 0845 644 5452 or email Clientsupport@fleet-tutors.co.uk Tutoring

Summer FUN @The Little Gym this Olympic year Looking for activities for your children this summer holiday? Look no further.

We are running our ever popular

summer camps at one of our great air-conditioned venues in SW London. Specially created 3 hour camps (OFSTED approved) for 3-6 and 6-12 year olds build new skills and develop confidence while all the kids have loads of FUN. All this will be held from the 23rd July – 31st August. The younger children will enjoy lots of games, crafts and gymnastics all based around a fun weekly theme. The older children will be able to focus on advancing their gymnastic skills (whatever their level, novice or budding Olympian) in a relaxed workshop environment. Camps run morning and afternoons. Please call your local centre to get their specific timings. We are also running our regular classes through the summer for those whole would like something to do each week, especially new Mums (we offer classes for

children as young as 4 months) looking for some indoor activity in the summer. The Little Gym program takes a non-competitive, progressive approach to the development of your kids. Children aged from 4 months to 12 years learn, through gymnastics based activities, at an age appropriate pace. All this, while having loads of FUN with our friendly team of highly skilled instructors. We also do fantastic Birthday Parties (and offer Special Summer prices). Fun, gymnastic based activities and adventures, for kids of all ages, leaves them beaming. Mums and Dads love them too! As we do all the hard work! Give us a call. Come along and see how much fun you can have at the Little Gym over this summer.
