Why Progress Academy for 
Shoeburyness High School
Highly Recommended!

My kid started his preperation for 11+ through progress academy at a later stage of year 4 but the academy designed the course with much attention and made it interesting for the children. At one stage, even I really thought about backing out after seeing the syllabus / cutoff marks but Hema Prakash taken great care and explained patiently to both myself / kid for overcoming that fear. They have instilled a great confidence in the child which was very evident on Year 5 school scorecard where there was so much of postive comments from his teachers. The academy never considered fee as a factor because they conducted more sessions than the paid hours as thier only goal is to bring the best out of every children. Would recommend Progress Academy for any parent who aims to provide good academic skills to their children. - Surendar Subramaniam
