Our founders and course leaders, Tom and Cathy, are at the forefront of the latest developments in the 11+.

Our Team


Course leader


Cathy has been tutoring for the 11+, Common Entrance and GCSE for the past 10 years and before that she taught at a number of local schools. She has held roles of literacy leader, numeracy leader and gifted and talented leader. Her own children have been educated in Bucks so she understands the pressures that parents and children face. Her hobbies include travelling and going to the theatre, concerts and comedy gigs.
