There is a lot to be said for regular tests which show both the pupils and the teacher whether or not a topic has been understood. We are fortunate that both my mum and MIL are retired maths teachers so if the girls get into difficulties they can turn to one of their grans for help.

That is very useful, Elaine!  Do your girls listen to their grans?

The girls worship the ground they walk on. DD1 sat the entrance exam for a private school a few weeks ago and she walked to my mum's after school a couple of days to get some tuition. She passed the exam but the bursary we were offered was too small for us to be able to afford to send her (we knew it was a long shot but worth a try).

Sorry that she didn't get the requisite bursary, but a lovely relationship to have with your mum.
