Why Progress Academy for 
Queen Elizabeth's School, Barnet
I have absolutely no words for Progress Academy.

My son cleared all the 11 plus exams with flying colours . Progress Academy is nothing like other tutors, very professional , very good quality. The batches are very small , hence each child is given one to one attention.
I would highly recommend Progress Academy for children currently in Year 4 , following year 5.
Thank you for all the support ..🙏🏻🙏🏻
