BESPOKE 11+ TUTORING AND ENTRANCE EXAM PREPARATION
I offer tutoring and bespoke preparation support for the Warwickshire 11+ Exam for Grammar School entry, as well as the equivalent further afield. This tuition can be remote or face-to-face as works best for you.
I also offer tailored preparation for 11+ or 13+ Independent schools Entrance Exams. As a former Headmaster, this is an area I know well.
ASSESSMENT OF CHILDREN’S CURRENT ACADEMIC STANDARD AND ADVICE AND GUIDANCE ON NEXT STEPS
Many parents are not truly clear about their child’s academic standard and how they can therefore be helped to improve. I offer a detailed assessment in Maths, English and Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning, followed up by a detailed report including professional recommendations as to support and tailored next steps.
SCHOOL INTERVIEW PREPARATION
Families are often daunted by the interview and scholarship process in the Independent Sector. My preparation and advice can help with this.
Practice questions and mock interviews, either general or tailored to an application for a particular school or range of schools can really help build a child's confidence, and help them to perform at their absolute best when it really matters.
UNIVERSITY INTERVIEW PREPARATION AND MOCK INTERVIEWS
It is undoubtedly a daunting experience going for University interviews, sometimes with little preparation for the level and nature of the experience. I offer a bespoke and carefully researched service to give students the best possible chance.
LEADERSHIP APPOINTMENTS- SUPPORT FOR SCHOOLS
Appointing a new Head or Deputy Head can be hugely stressful and daunting for schools. Many executive search agencies charge very high rates for their services, making them unaffordable for many schools.
I offer support to Governors throughout the process with advice on advertising, shortlisting and interviewing right through to appointment and negotiating terms. My approach is always tailored to your needs. To find out more, get in touch.
HEAD SPACE- FOR CURRENT HEADS AND SCHOOL LEADERS
As a former Head in two different schools, I know for myself that school leadership can be stressful and lonely. I found myself many times wishing there was someone who I could speak to confidentially who could offer impartial advice without being involved personally in the situation.
Head Space is a new and innovative service which aims to offer exactly this. I provide a safe and confidential space for heads to discuss issues they face in their schools and careers.
FOR ASPIRING LEADERS
One of the most valuable services for aspiring leaders is tailored coaching within their current school. I work with aspiring leaders to coach them through all aspects of realising their leadership ambitions, offering support every step of the way.
Mentorship- I also offer mentorship for aspiring and new Heads as they prepare for leadership.
