Why Progress Academy for 
Ripon Grammar School
Great institution for 11+ coaching:

My son, Akhil had his 11+ coaching in Progress Academy and cleared all the four tests (Kent, Bexley, CSSE and Redbridge) that he attended. The dedication and individual care provided by Progress Academy to each student is the key reason for this achievement.

We are fortunate to find this training centre at the right time. Satheesh Kumar
