Welcome to Helen Grogan Tuition


Helen Grogan Tuition specialises in small group tuition courses. We have been helping students successfully prepare for entrance exams to London's leading schools for many years. We have an outstanding track record of success with all age groups, which is brought about by our many years of knowing exactly what children need to  learn and practice to succeed in these exams. 

This year 2021 we have had outstanding results from the 7+, 8+ and 11+ despite all the difficulties our brilliant students had to overcome and we look forward to a more 'normal' experience this year.  We feel that our years of experience help us and we have successfully adapted our 11+ programme with a large proportion of girls getting into St Pauls, Godolphin and Latymer and Latymer Upper.

We offer tuition in small groups in the form of  courses for: 7+, 8+, 11+ and 13+ examinations for London’s top private schools.  We also provide our small group tuition  for children in years 3, 4 and 5 who may require early preparation.  We are proud of our excellent track record at helping all of our students gain entry to their top choices of school. The classes are  held at The Hampshire School in Manresa Road, a lovely independent school well known to many of our parents.


We offer a personalised school entry advisory service which is helpful to those parents who are new to the process or those relocating from overseas.  This package is tailored for individual requirements including guidance, tuition arrangements and assessments.  


In addition to examination preparation classes, Helen Grogan Tuition also offers a range of complementary courses and activities in the holidays to supplement your child’s preparation. 


We believe that group tuition is a far more  helpful way to prepare for examinations than one to one private tuition. Children develop the techniques of exam taking, far more than with a private tutor, with no diminution in the quality of their learning or personal attention.  Our programme is carefully designed to build up a level of total confidence in our candidates. 


Our many years of successful results gives us every confidence that  group tuition combined with our creative writing workshops, interview practice, and mock examinations will give your child the best chance to live up to  their potential in an examination situation.

Benefits of group tuition
What we do best
  • Children enjoy and benefit from interaction with other children from different schools.

  • It allows them to compare their standard of work with other children. We are fortunate to attract students from very academic schools so we have high expectations. 

  • Group tuition is not like a class at school as they are very small. 

  • Students are helped to learn to work independently, cope with two hours of concentrated study and behave in a mature fashion. 

  • These abilities help them in examination situations.

  • We offer personalised school entry advice following our assessments prior to joining.

  • Our excellent success rate with academic and popular schools gives us confidence in our curriculum and preparation.

  • The Headteacher of one of the most sought after prep schools regularly directs parents to the classes which we feel is a recommendation that speaks for itself.

  • Our mock examinations and interview sessions have been been invaluable, according to parents of former students.

  • My post exam advice and guidance has helped many candidates on waiting lists to gain an offer at the school of their choice.
