My daughter has just been offered her first preference grammar school, Kings Edwards V1 Camp Hill which is undoubtedly down to the difference made by the KSOL team. Although she was already bright and able, the programme focussed on her specific weak areas as well as invaluable exam techniques and tips. By the time she came to sit her 11+ she was fully prepared and pretty relaxed having done four previous mock exams. Despite the extra effort of attending on Saturday mornings as well as the...

KSOL are the Market Leaders if you are serious about your child passing the 11 plus exam. KSOL helped my son passed all of the exams including KES and QMGS. He also got a place at Camp Hill, one of the toughest schools to get into in the Country. The Team are the best and I will be sending my second son there as well. (read more)

I wish to thank the KSOL team for their fantastic approach to preparation for 11+ and also independant school entry. The method and structured approach which KSOL adopts with a targeted approach to address individual child's needs is excellent. I can attest to this because BOTH our twin children with quite different personalities were provided support which targeted their individual areas where they needed help and addressed them. Our children appreciated the environment and encouragement... (read more)

Our son would not have achieved his place at KES Birmingham without KSOL - it is a simple as that! The daily on-line tests are backed up by superb tutoring on Saturdays (in Shirley), challenging the pupils to push their knowledge well beyond what they encounter at school. All the tutors genuinely care about the children, and hone in on areas each child needs to work on. The four mock exams were invaluable for our son in developing key exam and time-management techniques, so that when he came... (read more)

Having attempted some private tuition for my daughter, I felt that she was not being challenged and needed more fun, yet working hard at the same time. KSOL was mentioned to me and I started her on the intitial online package, which at first seemed easy, but what it is doing was building the foundation for your child to achieve whatever they wish. She then went on to the graduate package with the online tests and the visit to the centre every Saturday. The team here were great motivators... (read more)

My daughter began the intensive KSOL course in 2011 and loved the challenge. My daughter found the staff wonderfully supportive and full of knowledge. She enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and classes she attended in Warwick. The team at KSOL are incredibly generous with their time and support both to the children and the parents equally. Great team. Parents pick up important tips and understand how best to help their children. We can't speak highly enough of KSOL and intend for our son... (read more)

My son started doing online tests in year 4 on the early bird programme. This got him into a good routine, and when he started year 5 , he was more than ready to start at the centre. The staff at the centre have an excellent rapport with the children and my son was always eager to attend. The mock exams are an essential tool to enable the children to get used to an exam environment, which can sometimes be quite daunting.I cannot recommend the staff, and the KSOL programme enough.My son got...

Another success under your watch. My son has been offered a place at Queen Mary’s Grammar School, his first choice. The KSOL programme has been wonderful in supporting both my son and I through 11+ preparation. The daily routine of online testing/reviewing answers, weekly feedback an encouragements plus the mock tests all enhanced my sons chances of success and played to his preferred learning style. I hope all you receive similar feedback from all your students, because your services... (read more)

My daughter enrolled on the year 5 online training and weekly tuition. It was a big commitment for a 9 year old but one she embraced with enthusiasm and energy. The teaching was friendly, focused and sympathetic to the needs of our child and this allowed her to learn at a steady pace building on the skills she learned in school. The tuition although aimed at progress in the 11+ gave her greater confidence in her school work which also benefited. I met the KSOL team via the Institute of... (read more)

You sometimes get given targets to help you acheive your absoloute best.

The KSOL programme has been an invaluable experience for our Son, as well as ourselves. Just like many parents we were entering the world of the unknown, in preparing our son for the 11 plus exams for the first time. We are very fortunate to have discovered the KSOL programme, as our Son has not only developed academically, but also grown in confidence and this is all thanks to the team at KSOL, who provide a very warm and friendly atmosphere which promotes the best from each child.

The 11+ results have just been out for my son. We are based in London. We didn't put him through any tutoring and we were dependent on the daily online tests from KSOL. He found the online tests extremely helpful especially while tackling the tests for the North London Consortium schools. We've found them to be extremely professional and prompt in responses (including the final gift). The four exams he did at Birmingham, in a real exam environment, served as more than mock tests allowing him... (read more)

KSOL was the difference between my son getting into a King Edwards grammar school and not. KSOL taught not only the techniques required to pass the exams, but also it gave my son the confidence he needed. Lead by Anita and Aron, the team focuses on each child. The team are great at motivating the children, always giving positive feedback. My son would come from school and couldn't wait to do the online work (it didn't feel like homework). The whole package offered by KSOL: Online work,... (read more)

We used the daily tests on line to check learning and reinforce new areas. These tests on-line are great, as they give detailed feedback if you get the question wrong and also revisit the question the following week to check you now understand it. They are flexible as if you go away on holiday you can either do them while you are away or catch up when you are back. We would strongly recommend the mock exams. We did three mocks before the 11+ exam and they definately helped. (read more)

My child attended KSOL after tumbling across a couple of money focused tutors. I believed in him and KSOL helped him believe in himself. the structure of teaching is fun, structured and tailored to meet the needs of each individual child. I can vouch for this as my second child has started KSOL. I can not thank the tutors enough for what thet have done, the regular mock test, which reflected the real thing, helped my son learn how to cope with nerves. I actually phoned Anita, straight after... (read more)

The process of preparing a child to sit the 11+ exams is stressful.
What subjects do I cover? What level does my child need to be at? How do I prepare material so that my child can remember subjects and be able to use the skills and knowledge correctly?
Its a minefield, and many decide to rely on the help from others, however, the parent then has the task of deciding who can do this critical preparation and learning, as there's only one chance at getting it right.
The best way that a... (read more)

We heard about KSOL through a passing conversation with a friend and on their information decided to send our son to the sessions a view to seeing if he was up to the requirements of the 11+ paper, our qeustion was 'if he was given the chance, could he do it?'. I believe that KSOL gave an honest & open first appraisal and identifed our son's immediate strengths and weaknesses.
It is worth noting that they did not just tell us what they thought we wanted to hear and not once did 'financial... (read more)

I have twin girls who have been with KSOL for nearly a year now. They have greatly improved and both throughly enjoyed the sessions.
They have made many frends and will be keeping in touch. They are quite sad to leave and Thursdays will just not be the same.
I would reccomend KSOL to anyone who is looking for a tutor. The feedback and support from the staff is brilliant.
Thank you KSOL (read more)
