2015/16 11+ Course - Eleven Plus Tutor

TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR 2015/16 11+ COURSE (MARCH 2015)
THE PROVISION
1. Sir Tailor Master Tutor Ltd will provide tuition and the use of resources in
preparation for 11+ tests in verbal reasoning, numerical reasoning and non-verbal
reasoning. 35 sessions are planned. (Note that creative writing is not part of the
course but will be provided separately after the end of the course, at additional
cost, to those who want it.)
2. We take pride in helping your child to learn and in guiding you in how to
support this. This is most effective when our pupils and staff are allowed to work in
a pleasant, calm and collaborative atmosphere, so please respect the right of
staff and pupils to work free from any sort of disruptive, disrespectful, intimidating,
abusive or aggressive behaviour. In order to protect the well-being of others, such
behaviour by parent or pupil may result in the removal of the child from the
course. Your support is appreciated.
3. We are earnest in what we do and have faith in the effectiveness of our work.
We back this up with a money-back guarantee for those who fulfil their part.
Full terms of money-back guarantee: In order to qualify for a £300 reward (i) The pupil must (a) attend all 35 sessions of the 11+ Course; and (b) complete all
given work (paper, online and videos) and corrections by the given deadlines. All
work done on paper must be retained for inspection until 31st December 2016.
(ii) The pupil must complete the 11+ tests for Buckinghamshire and all the Slough
area grammar schools (Herschel, Langley, Slough and Upton Court) without
attaining a score that makes them eligible to be considered for a place.
(iii) All course payments must be received by us as scheduled.
(iv) Copies of result letters for Buckinghamshire and for the Slough area grammar
schools must be received by us on or before 4th Nov 2016. Any pupil for whom the
required result letters have not been received by this deadline, for any reason, will
not be considered for the money-back guarantee.
4. The Learning Coach (tutor) does some marking and recording. Parents (or
applicants) are required to do marking and recording of some work that is set for
completion at home.
5. All resources (materials, equipment and online resources) provided by us are for
the sole use of the pupil who is subscribed to the course. Sharing or copying of
resources is strictly prohibited. Sanctions may be applied to transgressors.
6. All resources (materials, equipment and online resources) provided by us remain
property of Sir Tailor Master Tutor Ltd except items specifically marked as nonreturnable. You may be asked to return some items when leaving the course. A
charge will be made for any such items not returned when requested.
7. Later joiners to the course and early leavers are entitled only to the resources
(materials, equipment and online resources) issued during the part of the course
that they are subscribed to.
8. Your application is for the course and not a particular tutor. Requests for or
against particular tutors or tutors of a particular sex will not be considered.
MONEY MATTERS
