Education and Tuition


Marie Redmond Tuition’s team of fully qualified and experienced primary teachers provide specialist 11+ tuition alongside mock tests with video feedback.  They encourage their pupils to improve core skills and build confidence; giving them valuable skills that will stay with them long after the 11+ and Common Pre-Tests.

Their 11+ mock exams are written by Marie Redmond MEd and are administered using pre-recorded audio, under real exam conditions.  Parents receive feedback within 48 hours for every question their child answered incorrectly, featuring detailed explanations from Marie Redmond on how they should have been solved.  Videos are used to explain the most challenging questions.

Marie Redmond Tuition’s Buckinghamshire and Berkshire 11+ courses for Year 4 and Year 5 pupils offer small class sizes that allow students to receive 1 to 1 attention from their tutor. The courses are developed by Marie Redmond and are continually improved for the best results, using traditional teaching methods and the finest resources available. Students enjoy a challenging, supportive environment and they are prepared for all aspects of the 11+.  Visit



At Pen and Ink Tuition we believe that all children learn in different ways, and as one size does not fit all, our courses are tailored to meet their individual learning styles. We do this by getting to know your child to find out what will work best for them.


At Pen and Ink Tuition we have fun learning activities to suit all styles of learning, because we know that in school tailoring the curriculum to this degree isn’t always possible, and some children fall behind. Come and see for yourself how we make successful learning fun and enjoyable for your child.


Inspirational Outdoor Learning at Green Dragon Eco Farm

We appreciate we are in uncertain and scary times right now. We understand there are mixed opinions on whether we should stay open or not.

After such a bad week weather-wise at February half-term, we were relying on our Easter event to help us recover financially.

Until we are forced to close, we will try to stay open. We need your business to help keep us afloat; there are staff to be paid and hundreds of animal mouths to be fed.

Please see our social media posts explaining various measures we have put in place to look after everyone, but we appreciate if you would rather stay at home.

Those of you wishing to be out-and-about in the fresh air, we will be welcoming owners with well-behaved dogs on leads for the foreseeable future, please acknowledge the signs onsite outlining the no-go indoor areas.

We need your help and support. We know that’s hard when everyone needs help and support. We have worked so hard, we would be devastated if we cannot continue moving forward.

We love and appreciate you all, thank you 💚

Brilliant activities for pre-schoolers at award winning Safari MK!
There’s so much more than Sensational Softplay and Perfect Parties at Safari MK. On weekdays during term time, they run a host of varied events for little ones, ranging from sports activities to water play, arts and crafts, messy play and food fun. Try out the Teddy Tennis, a totally interactive learning adventure, which is a curriculum-based education programme to inspire children aged 2 ½ to 6 years. There’s Socatots and Safari Kickboxing too, designed to develop physical fitness and mental agility. On the musical front, children love Musical Minis, Disco/Monkey Rocks and Hip Hop Tots which combines hip hop dance with lively music, absorbing stories and playful props. A unique pre-writing programme for under 5s, called Little Learners, devised by qualified teachers, helps to develop key skills to strengthen gross and fine motor skills.

Last but not least, on Tuesday mornings, there’s Baby College, parent and baby development classes which help parents gain an insight into their baby’s development from birth onwards and learn a carefully designed range of physical, multi-sensory and cognitive games and exercises to enjoy together in class and at home.

Some activities are included in the admission price and run by the Safari MK team. Others are provided by independent organisations who make a separate charge for their classes.

There’s something special for every pre-schooler at Safari MK and you can read about all the activities and how to book online at



Stagecoach performing arts classes focus on learning new skills, making new friends and most of all having fun whilst helping to develop confidence, physical awareness, communication and articulation - as well as being educational and fun, and encourage their students to blossom into well-rounded individuals, ready to embrace life and all its opportunities.

Stagecoach Summer Workshops will be running during the Summer Holidays for all age groups where students participate in all three performing arts disciplines: drama, dance and singing classes, creating a professional performance for family and friends at the end of the week’s workshop. With a choice of schools throughout Buckinghamshire & Milton Keynes, there’s bound to be a Stagecoach school near you to provide an exceptional Summer holiday activity. 

They also provide wonderful parties and understand that with the increasing demands on parents, juggling the pressures of work and family life, time is of the essence. Their parties provide a way to remove the stress from what should be a day of celebration for everyone and allow you to sit back, relax and let them do all the work! Whether party goers want to be fairies, pirates or detectives, there is a Stagecoach Party for everyone! See their advertisement on page 5 of our Easter edition for all the individual Stagecoach school contact details.


Counselling and therapeutic play
What is therapeutic play and how can it help? Children don’t always have the words to tell us when they are struggling.

You as a parent will be uniquely attuned to your child’s needs and may be aware that they are finding something hard. They may communicate this via their behaviour.

Therapeutic play which incorporates the use of music, movement, art and play can help your child to find healthier and alternative ways to manage their emotions, find self-confidence and develop coping strategies to nurture a positive future.
