Who Are We?

As a result of planning ahead for Covid 19 we moved our lessons over to zoom and using a variety of technologies we love it, and our students do. We have vibrant and entertaining and challenging lessons that are never so big that each student isn’t directly personally involved. All our homework is also now online. Why not use the menu and try one for yourself – they will be marked and sent back to you all you need to do is click on a homework and follow the instructions and write guest for class and time.

Peter Bleach was a teacher for over 20 years, working at both Townley Grammar & Chislehurst & Sidcup Grammar, as well as examining for EdExcel.   He has been tutoring for both the Kent and Bexley exams for the past 8 years with a proven success at gaining students entrance to grammar school.

Diane Bleach has previously been a company director for 15 years and now handles all of the administration and enquiries for Bexley and Kent Eleven Plus Tutors.  Both Peter and Diane hold current DBS certification.

In 2019 students successfully gained entrance into: Dartford Grammar, Newstead Woods, Beths, Townley Grammar School, Bexley Grammar School, and Chislehurst and Sidcup Grammar School.  We offer small classes on Zoom at present with a maximum of twelve students with homework, detailed feedback and mock examination priority.  We run our own tailored mocks for both Bexley (these are in the new format as used by Bexley in September 2019) and the Kent examinations as well as summer revision sessions.

Our Story

Nearly a decade ago we started a small one to one tutoring business and had a very high pass rate with our students. Pete had taught at two excellent local grammar schools (Townley and Chis and Sid) as well as a number of public schools (such as Surbiton High School and Kingston Grammar School) and knew what a fantastic opportunity the local children had. He used feedback from his students to make mock examinations and developed his own questions. As the reputation of the business grew and siblings went on to follow the success of their predecessors the business continued to grow into the professional, holistic and fun one that it is today. Don’t just rely on us – read our reviews on https://www.netmums.com/local/l/mr-peter-bleach

New Technology

In 2018 we invested heavily in new technology to help students with Non verbal Reasoning and Spatial Awareness. We have employed Anton Blake (who has animated for major films such as the Lion King) to produce 3D cubes to help students gain an understanding of how to translate 2D Nets into 3D shapes. We have a Hypervsn 3D Projector which allows students to see how nets transform into three dimensions.
This shows that not only do we lead the way in teaching methods but we are prepared to give your child every possible advantage in the eleven plus.

Recommended Reading

The following is a selection of learning resources and materials we recommend for every student aiming to apply for entry to grammar school. An excellent Maths primer is Peter Robson Mathematics Books 1 – 5. Important Words for Verbal Reasoning - Eleven Plus Exams is a superb word list for the eleven plus. Reading Classic Literature is particularly important, we would recommend authors such as:
  • Douglas Adams
  • Charles Dickens
  • Homer
  • Phillip K Dick
  • Jane Austin
