Congratulations to the 2021 cohort!

I made this video for you.

Please send me the answers to the two questions given; I will post them anonymously below.

What have you learned at Literacy Club?

 "I have learnt the importance of persevering and not giving up. I have picked up the skill of working hard and being industrious. I have realised that these abilities and skills will guide me for the rest of my life. I know now techniques and vocabulary that will stay with me forever. You have built my base and prepared me for challenges. These two years were my most profitable years for a long (time) to come."

"In literacy club I have learnt the meanings of so many different words, I have understood English in a different light, I have improved immensely on Creative Writing, and I have gotten so much better at comprehension than I had before." 

"Of course, I have learned a lot of vocabulary and verbal reasoning and such but my answer has nothing to do with that. What I have learned at the Literacy Club is that if I have done something wrong, I shouldn’t lose sleep over it (as my teacher says). If I have done something wrong then I have done something wrong and there is almost nothing I can do about it. For example, getting a low score in the 11+ is not a huge problem (although an unfixable one) because you can still succeed in life regardless" (NB This child gained a very high score!)

 "I have learnt and improved on my literacy , as in the beginning I was poor . Alhamdulillah ,my literacy has improved dramatically, due to your support .I’m proud to be part of the Literacy club family."

"I have learnt that even if you have the knowledge you will not always succeed unless you persevere and that you need to train your knowledge every week or you will forget some things that you have learnt."

"The Literacy Club has been an amazing journey for me because I have learned so much during my time there.  Everything from new authors, ambitious vocabulary and reciting poems to unlocking my potential. 
My confidence has boosted immensely and I am very proud of my achievements.   As Harry Potter said in The Order of The Phoenix, 'Working hard is important, but there’s something that matters even more. Believing in yourself.'”

"I've learnt to work hard and to know that scores don't matter much about you. I've also learnt about staying determined in difficult situations, as well as more basic (but equally important) literacy skills, such as comprehension and how to do it, or memorizing and understanding how to use new vocabulary."

"I have exceeded extraordinarily in my creative writing, VR and literacy all thanks to these passionate and remarkable tutors. I learned to never give up in these unprecedented times. I believe that this ... is unbelievable and unbeatable!"

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life (Mary Oliver)?

"Our lives are short ones. They give us little time to fully express ourselves. However, for the rest of my life, I would like to live a diligent, worthy life. Sadly, I cannot give you an answer for what I will do for the rest of my life as I don’t know myself. Whether I am a doctor, teacher ,scientist, lawyer or and other profession my heart chooses, I am positive that I won’t regret it. I plan to try to be successful in anything I endeavour unto, learning and picking up from my failures. Hopefully, I will make the most of my time here, in this world, using every second wisely. I will still make room to relax as it is a fundamental part of life.

I hope I can leave life as proud as I am leaving Literacy Club."


"Hopefully, now I can relax after all my exams. When I am older I hope to be an actor or a doctor or a dentist."

"Well, I want to be a businessman. But if that does not work out then I plan on becoming a teacher or a baker."

"I dream to be an AI engineer inshallah."

"I want to be a person .....who also needs to be very smart and persevering to be able to create a company.."

 "I have ambitions to be successful in many different arenas.  I want to be a professional athlete and a good businessman.  I also want to donate lots of money to charities and to stop wildlife from becoming extinct." 

"I want to help people, the world and the environment. Also, I want to go to good schools and a good University, where I will learn medical skills to become my dream job, a brain surgeon. One of my goals is to contribute to people all over the world as well as charities. I will do this by being a kind, helpful, honest, loyal, and generous person. These five qualities of a human are extremely valuable and worth more than anything in the world."

"I am not entirely sure what my future career will be but I want to help make a difference to the world!"

A poem for my pupils and all the Year 6s who faced this year with such bravery and fortitude:

(by Steve Cooney)

Remember when we walked on hills of heather Singing weaving mystical rings Now in a while my precious child You will unfurl your wings And I'll have lost what I believed Had promised everything But before you go my friend, my kind companion Listen to this song I sing Then go in peace and grow in grace and goodness Know that you have nothing to fear And dry your eyes my little one And let there be no tears Send me a dream from way beyond I promise I shall hear Oh beautiful beloved soul companion Thank you for those beautiful years And heaven hold and watch your way forever May your every dream come true Forgive all wrong, always be strong And do what you must do You stand before this open door And you must now go through My precious friend, my own my sweet companion Bless the road that carries you

We do not have the breakdown of the VR/literacy & Maths/NVR scores.

 A small number of parents received them on request and these are added in brackets to one decimal place.

Children in this cohort attended a variety of Maths/NVR tutors. 

This list includes some children who prepared solely for Independent exams but took the Grammar exam also. 

Scores from Sulayman and Ahsan's Literacy Club classes are underlined.   

 Girls/boys are pink/blue. Two pupils were known to be eligible for Pupil Premium.


270, 268, 263, 263,  262, 262 (133.7), 262, 262, 260, 259, 258, 258, 258, 256, 255, 255, 252, 252, 252, 252, 251, 251, 250,

Congratulations to the 2020 cohort!

Results from the Birmingham & Warwickshire consortium examination are below. 

They are completely accurate and correctly represented here. 

We do not have the breakdown of the VR/literacy and Maths/NVR scores.

Children in this cohort attended a variety of Maths/NVR tutors. Some high attaining children attended a Maths/NVR tutor for only part of Y4 before leaving, or only a few workshops, including after the Grammar examination. They cannot therefore be fairly said to have been a pupil nor would the parents accept that when their main Maths/NVR tuition was elsewhere. Under pressure, my previous version highlighted them as being so.  I have rectified this now. 

The cohort below includes scores from Sulayman and Salah's Literacy Club class, which are underlined.   

 Girls/boys are pink/blue. Four pupils were eligible for Pupil Premium.

It is hard to analyse without a breakdown of the Lit/VR score, but from % information obtained by some parents, the lower scores are due to Maths/NVR drops.

275, 262, 261, 261 257, 255,  254 253,  253, 252, 247, 247, 246, 246, 246,  243, 242, 242, 241, 241, 241,

 240 240, 240, 240, 237, 236236, 235, 234, 233, 232,  230, 228, 227226, 226, 223,

 222, 222, 222, 220, 220, 219, 216, 215, 214,  214, 214, 209, 203, 200


Results  from the Walsall consortium examination were: 

386, 368, 368, 356, 349, 347,  340, 338, 330, 

(Not all pupils took the Walsall consortium examination; a number of able but lower scoring pupils in the Bham exam did far better in the Walsall exam, happily securing a clear Grammar School place through this)


KEHS and KES Results

19 boys and 8 girls attended Writing Club.  

Every child who attended has a KES or KEHS place; a real achievement in a very competitive entry year.

The majority of pupils had scholarship interviews at KES, KEHS and/or Solihull and Warwick Schools. 

So far we know that six boys have attained a KES scholarship

Two girls have attained a generous EHS scholarship. 

School Choices:

The majority of children in this cohort will be attending KES, KEHS and KES Stratford. To be updated when we finally have our postponed celebration party!


Congratulations to the 2019 cohort!

Results from the Birmingham & Warwickshire consortium examination are below. 

VR/Literacy score appears after the main score, in brackets. For ease of reporting here, decimals are rounded to the nearest whole number, but the consortium does not necessarily do this when adding scores together. 

The cohort below includes scores from Sulayman's Literacy Club class, which are underlined.  

 Girls/boys are pink/blue. Three pupils were eligible for Pupil Premium


274 (148),  274 (142), 271 (142), 267 (138), 266 (133),   265 (139), 265 (137), 265 (136) , 264 (134), 262 (129),

261 (139), 261 (137), 260 (131), 258 (130)257 (138), 256 (132), 256 (131), 256 (128), 256 (    ),  255 (133), 255 (130)

227 (119), 226 (115), 


In this cohort, an additional Support Class was run with Salah; this was a small group of children who could not manage easily/initially in the faster paced Literacy Club classes. The aim was to increase literacy confidence and still provide good access to the curriculum. Most of these pupils attended no, or few, Mock tests and holiday clubs. I did not, in all honesty, initially predict a grammar school entry for Support pupils but with Salah's outstanding motivation & teaching & their hard work, they have done incredibly well.  These results are below:

260 (129), 238 (123), 237 (122), 237 (121), 232 (114), 232 (113), 229 (118), 223 (113),


Results  from the Walsall consortium examination were: 

389, 388, 348, 330   (Not all pupils took the Walsall consortium examination)

Congratulations to the 2018 cohort!

Results from the Birmingham & Warwickshire consortium examination are below. 

VR/Literacy score appears after the main score, in brackets. For ease of reporting here, decimals are rounded to the nearest whole number, but the consortium does not necessarily do this when adding scores together. 

The cohort below includes scores from Sulayman's Literacy Club class, which are underlined.

45 out of 54 students above gained scores likely high enough for KEVI Camp Hill Schools but a number of these are likely to choose KES/KEHS . 

All pupils except one who attended Literacy Club should gain a Grammar School place. The one pupil who did not, worked very hard and made super progress in literacy; their overall score is withheld above at parents' request; VR score is shown. 


Results  from the Walsall consortium examination were: 

400, 392, 380, 373, 372, 372, 365, 350, 350, 344, 340, 337, 335         (Not all pupils took the Walsall consortium examination)

Congratulations to the 2017 cohort!

Results  from the Birmingham & Warwickshire consortium examination are below. 

VR/Literacy score appears after the main score, in brackets. For ease of reporting here, decimals are rounded to the nearest whole number, but the consortium does not necessarily do this when adding scores together. The average score across all pupils for VR was 120.52.

The cohort below includes scores from Sulayman's class. 

One of the pupils in this cohort is eligible for Pupil Premium. The highest score of all children taking the exam, was 269. 

24 out of 36 students below gained scores high enough for KEVI Camp Hill Schools but a number of these are likely to choose KES/KEHS and other more local grammar schools. 

All other pupils except two underlined, whose Maths/NVR scores were significantly lower than their VR scores, have received a selective school place. 

267 (138), 260 (130), 257 (133), 257 (133),  256 (127), 255 (131) , 255 (126), 251 (124),  250 (128), 250 (126),

------------------------------------------------------------------------.

Results from Independent School examinations are as follows, from a writing and comprehension class of 10 children, 8 of whom took Independent school exams:

KES Scholarship, KEHS place and EHS 50% scholarship, KES place and Solihull School scholarship, 

KEHS place,  KES place, KES place, KES place, One boy not offered KES place based on Maths score



Congratulations to the 2014 cohort!

29 of 30 children are now attending a grammar or independent school.

7 girls are attending King Edward VI Camp Hill Girls

5 boys are attending King Edward VI Camp Hill Boys

2 children are attending King Edward VI Five Ways

4 girls are attending King Edward VI Handsworth

3 boys are attending King Edward VI Aston

2 boys are attending Bishop Vesey's Grammar School

3 boys are attending King Edward's School (Edgbaston) with scholarships/assisted places

One child is attending Edgbaston High School, one attending Solihull School, and one attending Priory School

It is fair to say that, at the Literacy Club, we do not work solely on examination practice alone but genuinely build children's love and understanding of reading and language and their ability to use spoken and written English with confidence in all areas of their lives. 

Some of the children in this cohort came through challenging times over the past year with fortitude and resilience and have my respect for their hard work, irrespective of final scores from one examination. 

I feel that this cohort has made very strong individual progress in developing reading, vocabulary and other literacy skills which will provide a very sound basis for their future. 

Birmingham Consortium Results ..

(VR/Literacy score appears after the main score, in brackets. Seven of the pupils in this cohort are known to be eligible for Pupil Premium and have therefore achieved a place at a grammar school with a lower score than the official cut-off)

261 (130), 258 (132), 245 (127), 242 (121), 242 (117), 238 (115), 236 (134), 236 (125), 236 (118), 236 (118), 236 (117), 

 233 (123), 233 (123), 233 (115), 233 (111), 225 (112), 225 (110),  223 (116),  221 (107), 221 (105),

Walsall results

Overall, children have scored very highly with the vast majority attaining a mark high enough to ensure a secure place at Queen Mary's Grammar or High Schools.

Walsall scores are not broken down into curriculum areas, so we have no data on children's literacy scores, only their overall score. 

The Walsall examination allocates more marks for Maths/NVR overall than the Birmingham and Warwickshire examination.

'Pass scores' for last year on offer day were 309 for Queen Mary's High (Girls) and 318 for Queen Mary's Grammar (Boys).

Results so far are below:

384, 374, 374, 366, 360, 353, 345, 345, 343, 342, 338, 336, 335, 335, 334, 331, 326, 322,  321, 320,  310, 299, 297,282

Independent School Results

Our tuition primarily focuses on the Grammar School examinations. However, a small group of 10 children attended Writing (with comprehension) Club in Year 6 in order to prepare for the Independent School examinations. 

Not all children took the KES/KEHS examinations as some were aiming for places in EHS/Solihull. Some results have come through:

All boys from Writing Club have been offered KIng Edward's School. All girls but one have been offered King Edward's High School.

One girl has a combined scholarship and assisted place for King's Edward High School.

One girl has an assisted place for King Edward's High School.

Two girls received assisted places for Edgbaston High School.

Two boys have an assisted place for King Edward's School.


Congratulations to the 2013 cohort!

School allocations and choices for the 2013 exam cohort 

All children gained a selective school place at one of the following schools:

Queen Mary's High School Walsall.

King Edward VI Camp Hill Girls' School

King Edward VI Aston School

Queen Mary's Grammar School, Walsall

King Edward VI Camp Hill Boys' School

King Edward's High School (Edgbaston), including a scholarship and an AP.

King Edward's School (Edgbaston), including one boy on a full scholarship/AP.


Results in detail:

Girls: 227 (118), 227 (117), 229 (130), 229 (121), 231 (118), 244 (134), 

253 (134), 264 (134) 

Boys: 213 (117), 222 (123), 226 (121), 229 (124), 232 (127), 238 (114), 254 (135), 269 (143) , 291 (149)

The score of 291 was the highest score of all children who took the examination.

All children except one scored higher in VR/Literacy; their VR/Literacy score is posted in brackets after the main score.

One child did not attain a high enough score for a Birmingham Grammar School but fortunately scored very highly in their Walsall examination, which will enable them to take a place at Queen Mary's.


Independent Schools

I was told that the progress she has made has been amazing. Not only have her marks gone up significantly at school but apparently she is a different person altogether in class, more confident, proactive and contributes more.
I wanted to thank you for all your hard work and support with M's work.
We are very grateful for all your effort and keeping us on our toes even when it feels incredibly hard. THANK YOU..

Thank you Sulayman for your very positive impact on D.....we are  very pleased  that D  is gaining confidence. 

I would just like to say a massive Thank you to Sulayman.
Thank you for supporting J throughout the year, I know it's not been easy.
I appreciate everything you have done. 

(To Sulayman) H scored ** in her grammar test, we are very pleased with her result.
I just want to take this opportunity to thank you for all the time and effort you put in for H to get this far, she scored ** in her English section which demonstrates just how valuable your club is.

Thank you for helping M and you'll see him again at the Writing Clubs. Thank you for believing in him and also for your efforts with all the children attending the Literacy Club.

Good News, N  has been offered a 25% KES scholarship and assisted place. We want to thank you once again... we were told he did very well in English and he could not have done it without you. N ... has the pick of Camp Hill and KES, something we were dreaming about for him when we first introduced him to the Literacy Club.

When he first joined the Literacy Club he was eight and because he is a summer baby it was obvious that his literacy skills would benefit from improvement (seeing that he was not reading that much). Now he enjoys reading a lot more and we are very proud of his LearnThatWord achievements and the fact he has read a few classics.

The Literacy Club has been a complete success even if D does not go to Grammar School as his literacy skills have improved along with his confidence. He has made good friends and hopefully some of them may end up going to the same secondary school.

We will recommend the Literacy Club to everyone we come across. You should be very proud of your efforts in helping all the children achieve their dreams.

Thank you for all your sincere hard work with the children. You have kept them happy, motivated and been a shoulder of strength to us as parents. Z has thoroughly enjoyed the past 2 years and has flourished in her literacy levels more so she is becoming passionate about reading harder books for leisure. 
We all feel emotional as it's the end of the road, we will miss your smiling face. Many times Z has said to me that Rebecca is the best teacher. Thank you for being a friend to our children.

B chose KEHS and we couldn't be happier. It's what we always wanted for her. Thank you for all your hard work with her.

I have accepted a place at Camp Hill Boys and A is very excited about starting there. Thank you once again for all your hard work and advice. 

Once again just want to send you our heart-felt thanks to you ! 
Thank you for your hard work, professional tutoring and nurturing. It's our luck to have you along C's journey of seeking a better education, aiming to lay a solid foundation for her future academic pursue (sic). Really appreciate your tutoring, guidance and inspiration all through the time. I do strongly recommend you  to any of my friends asking me for 11+ tuition

Fantastic news..A made it into Camp Hill! We are all so pleased for him. Thank you so much for all your hard work. Could NOT have done it without you and without our prayers :)

Just wanted to let you know I have accepted a place at KE Five Ways for D. Thank you so much for all your hard work and effort with him-  and not giving up on him.

Thank you for all your help and commitment. A has benefited greatly from the literacy club. 


Many thanks for your exemplary support to N over the last couple of months.
He has developed a taste for reading after joining the Literacy Club and really enjoyed your sessions including the holiday clubs.

Thank you for all your hard work and commitment.

I have seen in the holidays that H has improved quite a lot since he has been with you, and I am very grateful to you.

My child has really enjoyed attending the literacy club and has really learned a lot from what he knew before he started the literacy club.

It has been a memorable and rewarding experience for S to be a part of the Literacy Club. As we come to the end of our journey together in his learning, he moves on as a more confident, resilient and informed learner. He takes with him love for literature and books which he imbibed during your lessons. Mere thanks would not suffice, for you have made such an impact on him. Whatever the outcome of 11+, S has already emerged as a winner! Please continue with problem solving clubs, S loved them!

L has progressed well over the last past year due to the excellent tuition by his tutor. Thank you so much.

I'm very happy with all aspects of the literacy club. I have taken my sons to many tuition centres and so far this has been the best. I have not come across such a dedicated tutor like Rebecca.

The rewards offered for being on time and reading etc. are all good ways of keeping kids interested. Games, fun way of learning again keeps kids interested. Thank you.

Thank you for all your efforts, concern, care for the children. Your teaching and subject knowledge has been excellent.

(After receiving Queen Mary's examination results): Thank you, thank you so much. Now I can jump for joy. I feel so happy for H. All his hard work has paid off. Thank you for everything you have done for him. I can not thank you enough.

The teaching is excellent. Rebecca has dedication for what she does. I would recommend the club

F has been getting full marks at school. He said everything you have taught him helped. 

I wanted to drop you a note to say a heartfelt thank you for the support you have given L ... he got a lot from your sessions and it's really helped him in the build up to the exam. He speaks very highly and positively of his time with you - thank you. 

We cannot express our gratitude enough for all your hard work and dedication you have shown for A. His confidence has grown and his knowledge in vocabulary is now exceptional thanks to you.
