English literacy sessions for children aged 4 - 11. Their unique provision offers English literacy skills that inspire the child to develop their reading, writing, spelling and comprehension in a small group environment, where creativity and drama play an important role in engaging the child to learn. So much so, their provision is fun, exciting and effective, leaving the child wanting more, even on a Wednesday!!!

4pm to 4.45pm Old School Prep
Focused reading sessions are helping children who have started reading aged 5 plus. The slots are allocated on a first come first served basis. The children who are waiting for their reading slot will be encouraged to bring along a packed lunch and will have a supervised play time whilst they are waiting their turn and can be left with us until 1.30pm, even if their allocated reading slot is earlier.

4pm to 6pm - Mathematics tutor group
A Maths tutor group for students who need help understanding the French methodology. We can provide Maths support for students aged from 8 to 20 yrs, offering extra cramming sessions for students preparing to take their Brevet or at a higher level, the Baccalaureat. Our current groups are enjoying a subject that has in the past been tedious, baffling and boring. The students are studying to improve their Maths skills to complement their French schoolwork and some are also focusing towards achieving the IGCSE and A level Mathematics examinations which will enhance any application to further education establishments in English speaking countries. One to one sessions can also be arranged. Please get in touch for more details.

Group Art Lessons for Adults

Our workshops help students to have confidence in their own feelings, build on existing aspirations and identify and solve problems and encourage their own personal creativity. Our workshops cater for all approaches: Accurate representation, personal expression and abstract painting. We encourage students to work in all mediums; water-color, oil paint, acrylics, soft pastels, charcoal, graphite etc. We welcome all levels of ability; professional artists, experienced amateurs and complete beginners.
