April 2020 – Update on Smart 11+ Tuition in Harborne, Solihull and Sutton Coldfield

Hello everyone! I hope that you are staying well and safe. The last few weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind. I wanted to write a quick note about what has been happening at Smart 11+ Tuition to ensure that tuition can continue during these strange times. I also wanted to thank you for your ongoing support for the team at Smart 11+ Tuition in Harborne, Solihull and Sutton Coldfield.

The Smart 11+ Tuition social media accounts may have seemed quiet lately. My team has been focusing on making sure that our pupils and parents are well supported in the first month since the centres were closed. It is really important to me that our existing customers are looked after, and this is my number one priority. There will be more content coming out on our social media channels soon to test your brains, make you laugh and expand your knowledge over the next few weeks now that the routine is a little more settled so watch this space!

Here is what has been happening at Smart 11+ Tuition:


Our tuition hasStudent-Characters-01 been moved tuition for the time being. Jon, one of our brilliant tutors, is working really hard producing videos to explain the work for the week and this is distributed along with our brilliant resources. All Smart 11+ Tuition pupils are still able to access the brilliant BOFA platform to continue their learning whilst they are unable to come to our centres. Whilst it was particularly frustrating that the Harborne Centre had just opened, the safety of our pupils, parents and staff is paramount.

I am pleased to report that feedback from parents has been excellent. I appreciate that this is an exceedingly difficult time for everyone, however in my experience as a teacher, I know the resilience of children is exceptional. They adapt quickly and I am glad to see this in the reports that are coming back from everyone.

New Starters

In normal times Emily and I are regularly showing parents and future pupils around the centres. As a result of their closure, we are not able to showcase the work that is done by our tutors and the resources which we use. As a result, we have made the difficult decision to stop taking on new pupils at this time.

If you are interested in 11+ tuition in Harborne, Solihull and Sutton Coldfield, Emily and I are available for enquiries. We will take your details and get in touch with you closer to the time when our centres are due to reopen.

The Future

Right now, I am working on plans for when centres reopen. Whilst I do not know what form this might take, I am going to look at a range of possible scenarios with emphasis on the safety of our pupils, parents, and teachers.

I personally cannot wait to welcome all our pupils back for 11+ tuition in Harborne, Solihull and Sutton Coldfield.

Stay safe and well,


Principal Tutor
