School Open Days & Nights 6th – 12th Jan

School Open Days / Nights are a great way for your child to experience their potential, future ‘big school’ and get a feel for its culture, ethos, subjects and activities, in order to decide if it really is the school for them. 

But it’s not just for the P7s, as all schools openly invite P6s to get their first peek as to where they may go to in a couple of years and it’s important to  start this research early as it will give them something to aspire towards and if needed, work hard to obtain the scores to gain a place. So if you had any concerns about turning up and your child is only P6, don’t worry and be assured that these days are very much for you too.

*Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that all these details are 100% accurate, if you spot anything incorrect, please let me know by email and I’ll happily update.

Also, before we get started, make sure you don’t miss the January sale of 20% off all The Transfer Tutor licences (online quizzes in English and Maths). Sale ends on the 12th January so don’t miss out.

There are many, great features including (but not limited to):

  • Quizzes broken down into specific English and Maths topics, to allow for focused learning and the ability to hone in on areas of weakness.
  • Mobile friendly and works on any internet device.
  • Hint’ option supports the child’s learning. For example, in question about calculating area of an irregular shape, the hint will say, “Break it into two” – enough to keep the child going but teaching them for future, similar questions.
  • The Leaderboard at the end makes the child feel like they’re playing a game and having friendly competition.
  • Good use of colour and graphics which makes it exciting.
  • Parents receives a progress email at the end to let them know how their child did.

How To Buy

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Works-On-ALL-Devices-1-1024x1024.png

All normal licences are a simple, one-off payment (except the monthly subscription of course) and they can be purchased in confidence through a normal PayPal account or using a normal bank card and the Guest option.

Licences are purchased depending on the length of time required and as additional years are only charged at £15 per year (even less with the January Sale below), it’s worth considering a longer licence if you have a younger sibling.

To help you choose the perfect licence for you, here’s a quick reference guide:

  • Youngest in P6 – Cat Licence
  • Youngest in P5 – Elephant Licence
  • Youngest in P4 – Tiger Licence
  • Youngest in P3 – Unicorn Licence

If you need a licence that is not detailed below, just let me know and I can arrange something specific for you.
