Private School entrance exams in and around Warwick

4th February, 2023

Are you considering applying for private school in Warwickshire? Below, I have listed the private schools local to Warwick and Leamington Spa, along with an overview of their application process.

If your child is currently in year 4 or 5, now is a good time to look ahead at what schools you might consider for them. Each school has its own admisssions policy, exams and timetable.

Most schools have open days around June and September. You normally have to book to attend, and their places fill up – so do look ahead. Schools often allow you to visit during a normal school day – on request only.

Entrance exams are usually in the autumn term for children in year 6. You have to apply to each school, and the deadline is usually just a few weeks before the exam date.

If you want to know more about how I can help with preparing for the entrance exams, in Warwickshire or elsewhere in the UK, then I have more details on private schools exams

Nicola Bhalerao - Warwick Tutor

About Me

My name is Nicola Bhalerao and I am a private tutor based in Warwick. Since 2013, I have provided one-to-one tuition for children and adults. I specialise in maths tutoring, but cater for different requests, ranging from 11+ to various computing skills, including website training.

My background is in computing, with a Computer Science degree from Warwick University. I have worked many years as a programmer, latterly in the games industry. Both my sons were tutored by me for the 11+ (they went to a local grammar school). I received training for teaching secondary school maths and I am fully CRB checked.

I am a WordPress expert, having spent many years creating numerous websites with my other business, Smiling Panda Web Design. Although I no longer actively work on websites for others, I offer help with understanding / updating / creating your own WordPress website.
