'Summer School' 2020

Group Courses and Workshops

This summer in July and August we are running a range of courses to help students moving from Year 5 to Year 6 prepare for their upcoming 11+ entrance tests. All conducted using our own resources and taught by our very best tutors, these courses are the best way to boost skills and raise expectations.

In addition to our usual popular 11+ prep, we are running a series of 'Covid Catch-Up' Classes for Years 2, 3, 4 and 5 aimed at teaching topics from the curriculum that have been overlooked or missed during the Covid-19 outbreak. Each Yearly Catch-Up will take place over two days and will be accompanied by extra worksheets and consolidation materials.

Finally, Torchlight is again teaming up with Wurkshop to present 'Write, Illustrate, Publish', our popular creative writing course aimed at primary age students. Over two days, students will write a short story, illustrate it and even make a beautiful binding.
