Lesson Structure

Each class will be led by one of the founders of Bradley Tuition or an experienced, qualified teacher. The lessons are 2.5 hours long. In each class there will be a maximum of 14 students, 1 qualified teacher and 2 support staff.

Please note, we have made some minor changes to how we operate our Year 4 course. We have increased the length of the lesson and we have doubled the amount of time the children spend with a qualified teacher each week. There is no one-to-one tuition included. The lesson is broken into three parts and is explained below.

Part 1 (65 minute teacher-led lesson) – During the first 65 minutes of the lesson we review last week’s homework topics. We will recap the techniques and review some of the trickiest questions to ensure everyone has a good understanding.

Part 2 (15-20 minute active learning break) – The break in the middle of the two main parts of the lesson will see the children get up and get active by playing games that will include a learning focus.

Part 3 (65 minute teacher-led lesson) – In this part of the lesson, we will teach the children a range of new topics. We will show them the techniques and methods required to master each of these topics and we will work through several example questions together, until each child is confident.


The children’s homework for the week will then be focused on the new topics covered in the final part of the lesson. Children will also have reading, vocabulary and comprehension homework to complete every week. The homework is expected to take 3-4 hours to complete, each week.

All teaching resources have been carefully selected and are of the highest quality. The children have access to specifically designed 11+ material that is not yet available for purchase elsewhere. We also source and provide our students with the best quality books and materials available on the market.

Covid-19 Back-up Plan

Everyone is hoping that we have seen the last of the covid restrictions. However, as the last year has shown, you never know. With the plan we have in place, we can easily pivot to teach the classroom-based lessons online, via Zoom. We would deliver all materials if this were to occur. The price will remain the same. The decision to pivot to online learning is solely at the discretion of Bradley Tuition and can happen anytime throughout the course.

Course Fee

The course fee is £1810. A non-refundable deposit of £250 is payable to secure your child’s place on the course. 8 monthly instalments of £195 are then payable on the first of every month from 01/11/22 to 01/06/23.
