11 Plus St Albans Summer Booster

Our small groups of children are carefully peer matched according to their ability and learning style. This is an effective way to accelerate development as it increases each child’s confidence and provides a learning environment which is very different from the school classroom.

VAKS is often described as a ‘learning club’, where children are individually nurtured and challenged.
