Active Education



After the huge success of our Active Education course in October we are proud to announce our December  Camp. This short course is designed to promote a solid understanding of what to expect from 7+ and 11+ exams. The aim of the course is to familiarise children with exam format and exam technique for each of the core skills subjects in an inspiring, immersive and fun way. 

WEEK 1: 14th - 16th December
WEEK 2: 21st - 23rd December 


The children sit a mini mock at the end of each day, and at the end of the course parents are presented with a digital report - with exam results , suggested improvements and academic benchmarks - so they have an informed understanding of where their child is, in terms of curriculum and what they need to do to improve.

To inject some festive fun into the course, children will take part in group games such as dodgeball with our coaches for a small part of the day. Tuition is led by our partner education company NOSCE who specialise in teaching for the 7+ and 11+.

The course will take place at the fantastic UCS Senior School, Frognal, NW3 6XH with children welcomed at the main gate each morning at 9am. 

Parents can also benefit from a free education consultation session with the Nosce team! For more info on our partners from Nosce Education please visit
