Read what our parents say about us...
Thank you so much for all your support and help for my children. They have achieved a lot and made excellent progress after joining Leaders are Readers Northwood.
The Summer School helped my son to prepare for his 7+ entrance exams.
Here's the good news... He has passed the Habs Test which I must say was extremely competitive and I am really proud of his performance.
He also passed St Martins, St Johns, UCS, Belmont and Latymer.
He's been offered academic scholarships at some of the schools as well. We have decided to send him to Latymer.
All this would not have been possible without the effort of your excellent team at LAR Northwood .
I am pleased to inform you that my son has been offered a place in Haberdashers Ake Boys. We are going to take the place up for him. I want to thank you for the help and support you provided in order for him able to achieve the high.
I enrolled my daughter originally on the reading course as soon as she turned 5 yrs old. Simply put, the improvement to her reading ability was evident within the first 2 weeks. The sudden change in her reading attitude was positively recognised by her classroom teacher at her full time school. Her achievements are a direct result of the dedication and commitment given by the teachers and personnel at Leaders are Readers. This course has instilled a level of confidence in my daughter and a passion for her wanting to read everything in sight!
I just wanted to say a heartfelt thank you for all your help and support over the summer.
My daughter broke up for the summer holidays lacking in confidence and demotivated. We were told at the end of year one she was near the bottom of her year group. Unsure of what to do next, we enrolled her in the Leaders are Readers Summer School programme in Northwood. She was going to be sitting the 7 plus in 6 months time and was a long way off her target.
She did 3 weeks of intense Maths and English. There were days where we felt that this was all too much, as the commute alone was 3 hours a day for us, but we all persevered.
A few months into year 2, the school had noticed a considerable difference in her performance. She had come into her own. She had gained confidence and was now near the top of her year group. I am pleased to say, that she received an offer from all 3 schools she sat the 7 plus at.
I found Leaders are Readers an easy scheme to follow as parents are involved right from the beginning and it was really great having access to the tutors in the evening, especially for working parents. It's something I always recommend to friends as I've seen the benefits in my own children. They're always happy to spend time reading on their own while I do my chores and most important of all they love to read.
Since my daughter started Leaders are Readers her reading age went from age 5 to age 7. Reading has opened up a whole new world for her. She hardly goes anywhere without a book to read! Her spelling is great and her vocabulary is expansive. This is in no small part down to Leaders are Readers.
I also enrolled her on the Einstein Maths course and her maths has improved dramatically. Her maths has just gone from strength to strength. The maths course has helped enhance her understanding of key mathematical principles and instilled in her a quiet confidence in her own abilities. We are delighted with Leaders are Readers and would recommend them to anyone.
My son, Timi, has attended the Leaders are Readers programme for three terms, and the effect on him has been quite dramatic. He is now the best reader in his Reception class, and has developed more confidence and self-assurance. His teacher tells me that she has been teaching for 20-odd years, and has never seen a child take to reading so fast! I am grateful to the developer of this programme, and to Timi's teacher, Evie, for making him love books so early in his life. His handwriting has improved, and this reading ability (and ease) has impacted on his interest in other subjects at school and at home. I definitely believe that investing in the Leaders are Readers programme is one of the very best gifts that anybody can give to their child, and I intend to enrol my two younger children when the time comes. The old saying goes: 'Give a child a book, and you give him a gift for a day. Teach that child to read and you give him a gift for life.' Thank you, Leaders are Readers, for the lifetime gift you have given to Timi!
My daughter joined the Reading Programme at 'Leaders are Readers' in January 2006 just when she started main stream school at the age of 4 and a half. She could only just manage to read and write her own name. When she finished the course at 'Leaders are Readers' over 3 terms, she had a reading age of 7 and a half. She could read fluently, could write sentences and her ability to spell some very complex words for her age far out weighed any of my expectations. In fact these additional achievements in being able to spell and write well seemed to be a natural by-product of the course. To this day she is confident and is thriving in school because she has been taught at a very early age the essential building blocks which are absolutely necessary for further educational achievements. If you are thinking about joining the course for a child, think no more... the earlier they start, the better, you will not be disappointed... GUARANTEED!
I enrolled my daughter on the Language Sense Programme and it had a phenomenal effect on the quality of her work. This was evident as she gained admission into the 5 different selective schools she applied to. At the same time I enrolled my younger son on the Reading Programme and he has grown from strength to strength and he is now consistently top of his class. We are very pleased with Leaders are Readers and believe that without a doubt they contributed to the confident, creative, enthusiastic learners our children have become and would recommend them to any one.
I enrolled both my daughters in the Reading Programme from age 3½ and the impact has been tremendous. The systematic and fun way of teaching has given them a firm foundation in reading and has resulted in them increasing their reading ages by 3 years. Both the girls are now strong, confident readers and their vocabulary has improved significantly. The Language Sense Programme is stimulating and helps with all aspects of literacy.
I can recommend these programmes without hesitation. Leaders are Readers is a great investment in your child's future.
