We have been very fortunate to have worked with some fantastic pupils and some very supportive parents. Below is some of the feedback that we have received over the years:


  • ‘I have really enjoyed the course. Peter makes the lessons fun, and he helped me to better understand some of the areas that I was struggling with at school. I now feel confident and ready for the 11+.’ Connor (pupil)

  • ‘I would highly recommend Peter and the team. I found the tutor very friendly and professional. He kept my son motivated and he always came away from every lesson excited about what he had learnt. I am so pleased that we signed him up.’ Kerry (parent)


  • ‘I am very pleased with the tutoring service provided to my son. Both Peter and Carol are excellent tutors, very engaging and very supportive. Not only have I seen a huge improvement in my sons knowledge in all areas for his 11+, but this has also been reflected in his school report too, where he has shown massive improvements.’ Katie (parent)

  • ‘Peter has a very calm and supportive approach to his students and a lovely way of teaching. He clearly has a lot of knowledge and experience in teaching and in 11+ tuition. The small group size has allowed for student interaction, and a bit of fun, with plenty of individualised attention. Peter has worked with each student and tailored the tuition, both in class and homework, based on their individual needs. Communication throughout the course has been fabulous, with regular formal assessments and detailed written reports on their progress with areas to work on.' Helen (parent)

  • 'I cannot recommend Peter and the team highly enough. We have received a fantastic service and are extremely happy. Our daughter spent a year with Peter and Carol, and through their structured and supportive tuition she passed with a very high score. The feedback and communication we received throughout the year were excellent, and we were kept up to date with my daughters progress all the time. Peter has such a wealth of knowledge about the 11+ and he could answer any question that we had. Just brilliant!' Sophie (parent)

  • 'Peter made ever session challenging but also very enjoyable. He taught me about how to answer the questions in the 11+ and how to best use my time in the exam. He is very funny but also very serious when he needs to be. I loved working with him and loved having him as my tutor.' Hannah (pupil)

  • 'Peter is a truly outstanding teacher. My twins attended his 11 plus weekly tutorials during which time I saw them greatly improve in academic confidence and ability. Peter's positive, professional, and very approachable friendly manner has significantly aided my children’s development. From week one they returned excited and energised, and this remained, indeed grew throughout the year. I fully recommended him as an outstanding teacher and a great resource for our community.' Russell (parent)

  • 'The team have been fantastic for preparing my son for his 11+ test. Peter's calm approach and clear explanations have given my son confidence and the regular and detailed feedback has helped us as parents to be able to support his learning. I would highly recommend'. Natasha (parent)

  • 'I really enjoyed my lessons because you learn new topics and the lessons are fun. Peter is very good at explaining things and if you don't understand something he is always there to help. I would recommend the Headstart 11+ Tuition course to children who would like to be fully prepared for the 11+'. Tanusha (pupil)
