Public schools in England have a rich history, they are unique institutions going back many hundreds of years. Even so they are not easily understood perhaps because they are a combination of excellent schooling and a supportive home setting.
All excellent public schools share goals of academic achievement and co- curricular success. The community of teachers and pupils within the school strive for academic success and because of the boarding element, pupils have always qualified staff to talk to and make progress.
The environment supports a culture of striving for academic success. Teachers in boarding schools understand how much time and support is available, they also know that students are often competing for places at universities that are highly selective.
Teachers are always keen to ensure that pupils have plenty to do that will push them beyond the minimum requirements of their courses. UK public schools have a hugely impressive success rate in terms of access to top universities.

Tuition for prep school children is very common these days for two important reasons. First, there are more students, many of them from overseas, seeking entry to the same number of schools. Second, many senior independent schools are testing children at 11 (pre-tests) now as well as at 13 (Common Entrance). Thus more tutors have been hired by parents who have realised that entry to senior independent schools has become very competitive.
Leamington Education tutors children to give them the best possible chance of admission to a top UK senior independent school. Success is achieved by building relationships with students based on trust, as well as academic confidence and by clearly communicating the techniques best suited to the challenges posed by interviews, assessments and entrance examinations. Our tutors are native speakers and graduates of UK Universities.
Through surveys, interview guides, and cultural assessments, our Ph.D. level Psychologist assist parents and students in developing Individualized Learning Plans.
The first step is to complete psychological and educational tests, including tests of intelligence, cognitive and non-cognitive skills and tests of behaviour and attention. Psychoeducational testing can assist in identifying the learning style and needs of a child and allows professionals to determine the specific learning preference of children and adolescents to increase academic success.
