Success in Sixth Form with BYT St Albans

We are delighted to be working in partnership with the Cathedral and Abbey Church of St Albans for our brand new workshop. Is the step up to Sixth Form bigger than anticipated? Or do you need a boost for the next stage?

This course will help you to find the revision style tailored to the way you learn, and will cover the grammar and writing skills you need for constructing an essay, whatever the subject. In this workshop we will put these new and refined writing skills to practice and evaluate your writing to ensure that you know how to make your writing the best it can be. Albert Einstein once said 'Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think'. Are you ready to think?

Revision Courses

We’re adding new revision courses all the time. Find out more below.


We have a dedicated online learning platform to support students and teachers preparing for the 11 plus. With an extensive range of English, Maths, Verbal Reasoning and Non Verbal Reasoning practice tests, BYT Online is an excellent way to help take the pressure off the 11 plus for parents and students alike.




Tuition courses at BYT St Albans are always popular and many parents register their child a year in advance. Although it’s not essential to do so, in order for us to place your child on a course on a particular day at a specific time, we do recommend booking ahead.
