New Year, New Post...
Apologies for letting the blog go quiet for rather a long time.
The usual excuses… the agency has been extremely busy, and looking after a toddler (our little girl has recently turned two) is demanding, mind-blowing and wonderful in every possible way. We’ve also taken a big step: we’ve moved the office back to Hampstead, where Griffin + Bell (then Hampstead Village Tutors) was born. The new office has taken shape nicely, and is positioned on Heath Street, right in the centre of Hampstead Village, less than a minute from the tube station. If you want to talk education — from private tuition to homeschooling, from tutor nannies, to schools consultancy — do pop in and see us.
There are exciting plans afoot too. This year we will be developing a new website and relaunching our video tutorials. We’ve also devised some new holiday courses, starting with a CAT familiarisation course in February half-term, which is designed for all those girls who are unsure about the format and content of the London Consortium’s new 11+ exams (more on those in a future post).
As ever, we’re thrilled that so many of the young people we work with have been making giant leaps forward. Recently we’ve heard of G+B pupils who have got into Oxford and Cambridge, others who have gained 6th form places at Westminster, UCS and Winchester, and 11+ applicants who have already been invited to interview at a range of top schools. It’s great to see children growing in confidence and achieving their targets.
More updates soon!
