Power up

for the Eleven Plus

Our unique, holistic approach to tuition helps minimise stress, optimise success and grow confidence.

Take off

with Primary Maths & English

Strong foundations in English and maths are vital to building educational success, and the best time to start is during the primary years.

Secondary tuition

Need a little help…

Our secondary tuition supports work pupils are doing in school and prepares them for GCSEs.  We don’t just teach subject matter; we teach our students how to learn smarter.

What we do

Inspiring children to love learning

At Flying Start, we understand that everyone learns in different ways. That’s why we offer a variety of tuition options, designed to support your child whatever stage they’re at.

We have a different approach to tuition that incorporates a unique blend of traditional teaching skills, technology and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP). We don’t just teach our students what to learn, we teach them how to learn and we help them to develop the skills to become effective, confident learners. We call this our learn smarter approach. 

From laying strong foundations in the primary years, through to support with exams such as the Eleven Plus and GCSEs, our expert tuition will help your child to stand tall and fly high.

Why us?

Quality assured

There are so many tutors and tuition companies advertising their services these days so how can you, the parent, decide on the best option for your child? Unfortunately, the tuition industry is, as yet, unregulated meaning that there are no rules or minimum requirements in place and anybody can set themselves up as a tutor.  

At Flying Start, we only employ tutors who meet our discerning standards and we take the safety and welfare of our students very seriously. To find out more about our exceptional team, visit our team page.

We are registered voluntarily with Ofsted, meaning that all our centres are safe, our policies are top notch and our staff are fully trained in (amongst other things) safeguarding, health and safety and first aid – as well as being enhanced DBS checked. (It also means that you can pay for your tuition using Tax Free Childcare.)
