Putney and Barnes is famous as the home of the boat race. But, there is more to the area than beautiful riverside walks. Putney and Barnes is home to a variety of excellent schools, including St. Pauls, Ibstock Place and the Harrovian. Simply Learning Tuition has extensive experience not only helping students to gain entry to these schools, but also supporting them through every step of their academic journey.
We provide a bespoke tutor introduction service to help with every facet of your child’s academic journey. Whether this means a tutor to support Common Entrance exams, at whatever age they are taken, in order to secure a place in the school that is perfect for them; or hourly tuition to assist with GCSE and A Level exams, we can introduce an expert.
We also have a team of experienced educational consultants who can give their expert advice on every aspect of your child’s education, from choosing a school or university to supporting future career development. As well as consultancy, we introduce mentors who help children to improve their confidence and deal with changes such as moving to a new school. Moreover, to specifically help with a change in academic environment, our Boarding School Plus programme helps students adjust to boarding school, and our University Fast Track programme helps students adapt to the new challenges of undergraduate life.

Ibstock Place is another of London’s finest schools. It was founded in 1896 and has been educating both boys and girls to a very high standard since then. It is a co-educaional day school which educates students from the ages of 4 to 18. The school aims to produce students who not just excel academically but are also well rounded and happy individuals. With regard to entry requirements, Ibstock Place is a selective school, but it does not participate in the Common Entrance exams. Prep school entrants are assessed by a teacher and senior school entrants sit an entrance exam which the school devise themselves. The school produces excellent results, 81% of A Level exams resulted in an A or A* last year.
St Paul’s is one of the oldest and most prestigious schools in London. It was founded in 1509 as part of St. Paul’s Cathedral and has been educating boys ever since. St Paul’s has a mixture of day students and boarding students and the school educates boys from the ages of 13 to 18. The 13+ is the main entry point for students, with about half of entrants coming from St. Paul’s own prep school, Colet Court. Notable alumni include John Milton, Samuel Johnson and George Osborne. St Paul’s consistently achieves academic excellence, with 86% of A Level grades awarded last year being either an A* or an A. St Paul’s is a selective school which requires students to take the 13+ prior to entry.
