Holiday workshops | Locations in Fulham & NW London
Suitable for ages 6.5 to 12 years old (April of Y1 through to Y7)
These very popular workshops combine a number of exam-related topics and build on the creative writing courses by improving English skills and preparing for 7+, 8+ and 11+ independent school entrance exams. They are equally suitable for children looking for additional support in English.
ESBs are designed to polish-up English skills in creative and descriptive writing, written comprehensions, mini-comprehensions, multiple choice comprehensions, ISEB grammar and VR. As all our workshop booklets, the content for ESB is carefully written and varies each week upon the principle that there is something for everyone.

How it works
We are conscious that the children are at different levels at different stages of the year and our booklets are designed accordingly. The content is always diverse and interesting. As with creative writing, discussion is key throughout these workshops. The subjects are introduced at the beginning of each morning, the children are encouraged to interact at all times, gaining confidence, so they understand and enjoy the tasks they are given.
Key areas included in ESB workshop: how to approach written and multiple-choice comprehensions, creative writing, punctuation, sentence structure and grammar.
