Holland Park hosts a calendar of events across the academic year. We offer popular exam preparation courses during the autumn and spring months, geared towards those sitting their 7+, 8+, 11+, Pre-Test and 13+ exams.

This year, we are proud to introduce our Insight Sessions, hosted by our Director of Consulting, featuring interesting industry insiders, including school and nursery headteachers. For more information about these and other upcoming events, please see below or contact us by phone or enquire here.
Struggling with exam stress? Worried how you or your child may perform on the big day? Our expert psychologist, Gary Leboff, works with both children and adults to address areas where confidence may be holding a person back from achieving their goals. As the UK’s leading Performance Psychologist, families are frequently amazed at the difference Gary’s work can have in helping tackle fears and anxieties. Gary has been working with Holland Park Education since 2012, helping children aged 8-18 to gain confidence, tackle exam stress and achieve their goals. In this seminar, Gary will share his tools for how your child can develop a ‘can-do’ mentality that will transform their performance on the big day.
