Home tuitionThe lack of state grammar schools in the county means the pressure for tutoring children for the 11+ is eased. Parents might want to bolster their child’s chances of success considering Hurst and Brighton College as both operate lengthy waitlists.

Our guide to finding a tutor will help you navigate the options, and local sources inform us that The Worthing Tuition Centre in Worthing and K Perry Tutoring Services in Horsham both have good track records. For specialist language tutoring, Modern Foreign Languages Horsham Tutors offers a choice of online or in-person sessions focusing on GCSE and A level help. Online tutoring has become an increasingly popular option – all the local agencies provide this, along with the bigger tutor agency names (mostly based in London and the South East) including Bonas MacFarlane and Keystone Tutors at the higher end, and the more affordable Fleet Tutors (the majority of whose tutoring is now online) and Capital Tuition, among others. When using a non-local option, be sure to check the tutor you are assigned is familiar with the school(s) you are considering.

  • Special educational needs introduction

    Need help? Perhaps you suspect your child has some learning difficulty and you would like advice on what you should do. Or perhaps it is becoming clear that your child's current school is not working for him or her, and you need help to find a mainstream school which has better SEN provision, or to find a special school which will best cater for your child's area of need. Our SEN consultancy team advises on both special schools, and the mainstream schools with good SEN support, from reception through to the specialist colleges for 19+. Special Educational Needs Index

  • Grammar schools best value added

    We examined the value-added from KS2 to GCSE for 2022 to see which state selective grammar schools added the most value to their offspring. A note of caution - the more highly selective a grammar school, the less scope there will be to add value.

  • Grammar schools in the UK

    Grammar schools are state-funded, academically selective senior schools. The education a child receives at grammar school is paid for by the state unlike at private schools which provide education for a fee. There are currently around 163 located in 36 English local authorities, with around 167,000 pupils between them. Northern Ireland has a further 67 grammar schools, but there are none in Wales or Scotland. A word of caution: there are private schools that have the word 'grammar' in their name but this is purely for historical reasons. 

  • Music, drama and dance at Performing Arts schools

    At specialist music, dance or performing arts schools, the arts aren't optional extras. They’re intrinsic to the school curriculum. Students are expected to fit in high level training and hours of practice alongside a full academic provision. It's a lot to ask any child to take on, but for those with exceptional performing ability this kind of education can be transformative.
