Head Start Education & Tuition began its journey in 1996 and is proud to be celebrating its 25th Anniversary THIS year! Over 25 years’ of 11+ and 12+ tuition we have successfully prepared thousands of the best and brightest students for Grammar School selection, helping them gain access to the most reputable schools in Berkshire and Buckinghamshire and we look forward to helping many more in the years to come.
Maximise Your Child’s Potential

Education has never been more important. Young people now choose to study for longer periods, and to study a more diverse range of subjects. In a competitive society parents are increasingly aware that it is essential to ensure that their child has a firm footing on the education ladder.
Recently, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, pupils across the country in the crucial developmental primary school years, are also now at a significant disadvantage, having lost hundreds of hours of contact time with their teachers in the classroom. A report by the IFS predicts that“by the end of the pandemic, most children across the UK will have missed over a year of normal, in person schooling… more than 5% of their entire time in school”. The IFS also predict that the future cost of this could mean “a loss of £40,000 in income over their lifetime”.
Head Start is pleased to offer a comprehensive and structured programme of study in preparation for the Grammar School Selection Examinations, specifically designed to reflect the curriculum and examination requirements set by Bucks County Council and provided by GL Assessment. Whilst there is fierce focus on Verbal and Non-verbal Reasoning, time management, exam technique and strategy – subjects not taught at school – that is just half of the syllabus. The other half, consisting of Maths and English, follows that of the National Curriculum, covering and reinforcing key aspects of numeracy and literacy taught at school. Beyond this we devote a lot of effort into mentoring and fostering the correct mindset and approach towards all aspects of their studies at school and in the home.
Naturally, a Grammar School is not suited to every child. However, at Head Start we believe that every child should be given the chance to try and maximise his or her full potential. With over 25 years as an established educational institution, preparing students for 12+ and 11+ examinations, and over forty years of practical and specialist teaching experience, we believe that we really make a difference, giving your child the ‘Head Start’ required to succeed at secondary school and beyond.
