Why Progress Academy for 
Latymer School
Best place for 11+ exams preparation.

My son Ibrahim joined Progress Academy to prepare 11+ exams and he just finished his last exam this week. Irrespective of the outcome of his exams, I felt compelled to write my review on the 11+ course offered by Progress Academy, the quality of the material, the teacher assigned to him and the efficiency with which the process was managed during the pandemic. In all the above respects, the performance has been stellar. A very special thanks to Hema, for being very effective in teaching concepts and conducting the classes online which was a big challenge.

I’m extremely pleased with the hard work of their team and would highly recommend this academy. - Waseem Alvi
