Hi Claire142

Welcome to the site and please don't panic! :D

Focus on Year 5 DS - there is no need to do anything for the others at present.

Tutoring/coaching for the Bucks 11+ 2010 would usually start around January 2010, so you have plenty of time.

If Year 5 DS needs tutoring/coaching, and you are willing to pay for someone else to do that, you should try to find a tutor now. PM me with your location and I will see if I can find someone in your area. Some tutors will already be booked up, but others may not be.

If home-tutoring is your preferred option, look at Patricia's "Sticky" on this section on DIY/Home tutoring.

As well as prep for 11+, which you're presumably hoping will lead to a grammar place, you need to consider the backup plan. Some of the upper schools are very good on any measure, but a few are not, and if you have a backup that you're reasonably happy with, it's less pressure for the 11+.

if you are moving the thame/chinnor side of princes risborough you could consider an out of catchment application for lord williams in thame as your backup my daughter goes there and she loves it and if you are in top sets its not that different academically from grammar school

Claire - you've got mail. :D

Go to the bottom of the page and click on "You have no (or X number of ) private messages" - as you have logged in and out again, I suspect it will say "no private messages".

You can set your profile to alert you to PMs either via a pop-up (or flashing cursor) when you log on, or via email to the address you used to register on the Forum.
