The Good Schools Guide review of SENsational Tutors

Unusually (to say the least), the story begins at a campsite disco in Holland when founder and director Joanna Gibbs was a child. ‘There was this boy with Down’s Syndrome that nobody wanted to dance with,’ she recalls. ‘He had this infectious smile and that was it for me.’ SEN has been her passion pretty much ever since. In many ways, she grew up with SEN – not only are there a lot of physical disabilities and mental health issues in her own family, but she remembers with evident joy watching everything from wheelchair basketball to one-armed archery while volunteering at the Rotary International disabled sports championships.

  • Secondary school: understanding the 11+

    The 11+ is the entrance exam procedure for getting your brightish little button into a fee-paying or state grammar school. Much of the country abolished the 11+ several decades ago for state schools, but a few local authorities, such as Bucks and Kent, retained a large number of grammar schools and run county-wide entrance tests. In some other areas, such as Barnet and Kingston, a few grammar schools exist in tandem with the comprehensive system found in most of the country. These grammar schools set their own entrance exams.
