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.

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.)

Get Ready For the 11+
Our Get Ready for the 11+ courses are suitable for Year 4 students preparing for the Buckinghamshire 11+ plus and also suitable for students sitting their 11+ in other counties like Hertfordshire. The course lays strong 11+ foundations and builds on their core maths and English skills.

Primary courses running for Year 3s, Year 4s and Year 5s. Small groups and our unique, innovative learning style help children minimise stress, optimise success and grow confidence!
11+ Flash Workshops
Our 11+ Flash workshops target the trickier question types and teach the essential skills needed to succeed in each of the four main areas of maths, English, verbal and non-verbal reasoning. So whichever Eleven Plus topic your child is struggling with, we have a workshop to help.
