The 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.
