This March, we had the pleasure of hearing from hundreds of our students who shared the exciting news of their entrance exam successes and school offers. We have received tons of thank you messages from students all over the country and we are gleaming with pride! Director of Education, Anita Dhunna says:

"We couldn't be happier for all of our students. They worked so hard to reach their 11+ goals and it's been an absolute privilege to share this journey with them."

We are delighted to announce that, amongst many others, KSOL students have been placed at prestigious Grammar Schools such as King Edward's Camp Hill Boys & Camp Hill Girls (Bham), Stratford Grammar (Warks), Pate's Grammar School (Glouc), Aylesbury Grammar (Bucks), Royal Latin (Bucks), Tunbridge Wells (Kent), and even reaching the heights of elite Independent schools such as Magdalen College (Oxford) and Merchant Taylors (Hertfordshire).

 

Results have been collated and we are proud to learn that 86% of KSOL students successfully gained entry into the Grammar School of their choice. This is testament, not only to KSOL's unique TargetTeach® system, but to the entire team who work hard to support each and every child.
