"At last, an agency that listens to what is required rather than sifting through their books... the attention to detail and service has been truly excellent, and the four tutors we've employed have all been perfect for the job and actually delightful people too."
Introducing The Bulletin
At HVT, we’re not just interested in private tuition, we’re fascinated by the increasingly varied landscape of education: by the wide range of approaches to schooling in the UK and abroad, by the pressures and challenges faced by students and teachers, by diverse pedagogical practices, by the ever-shifting governmental policies for education, and by the core questions of what, how and why people learn.
That’s why we’ve included ‘The Bulletin’ on the new Hampstead Village Tutors site. Each month, we will post a column by an inspiring contributor - whether they are a teacher, tutor, professor, journalist, parent or student - exploring their thoughts on a particular aspect of education.
Whilst developing our new website, we have talked continually about the value of private tuition in the modern world and the ways in which education is changing.

HVT 11+ Summer Course 2014
This year, the HVT 11+ Summer Course will run from Tuesday 26th August to Friday 29th August at the JW3 building, 341-351 Finchley Road.
Our last two 11+ courses have been tremendously successful, with the pupils who attended gaining places at St. Paul’s, City, North London Collegiate, South Hampstead, Habs, Frances Holland, Channing and Queen's College amongst others.
The course is suitable for all students sitting 11+ entrance exams in the next academic year, and also to boys who are preparing for any 13+ pre-tests that will take place in Year 6, including St. Paul's and City Boys' amongst others.
Sessions will take place from 9.30am - 12.30pm each day and will cover English, Maths, Verbal and Non-verbal reasoning. They will also incorporate coaching in exam technique and interview skills, which will help your child to shine during their forthcoming assessments.
As part of the course, each child will have the opportunity to sit a timed paper in both English and Maths, and will be given detailed written feedback to take away.
Our focus will not only be on consolidating knowledge and exam technique, but also on encouraging the pupils and building their confidence before they face their first crucial set of exams. We will familiarise them with the style and content of the exam papers, help them to set goals, and allow them to go back to school feeling calm, prepared and inspired.
The cost of the course is £240 for four mornings. Drinks and snacks will be provided.
We’re keen for pupils to come to the 11+ Summer Course with a friend or two in order to maximise their enjoyment and confidence, so do feel free to pass this information on to fellow parents. If you’d like to book a place, or if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
HVT Summer Festival Stall
