Year 5

Group Lessons:

We have Year 5 group classes at Harris Academy Purley and Harris, Sutton. We also have online classes for Year 5. The Year 5 classes run on all days of the week and weekends.


Year 5 group lessons are taught mainly by Mrs Pillai and her senior members of staff.

Classes are held in groups of 12 – 15 students who are split into groups based on their levels of abilities. Weekly lessons will last 2 hours. There will be additional lessons held in half-terms and holidays which will not be mandatory. There are other optional classes like paper classes and support classes, verbal and non-verbal reasoning classes that take place every week. There will also be additional lessons held in half-terms and holidays which will not be mandatory. Brief feedback can be given after every weekly lesson but detailed feedback is given once a month.

Fees are £25 per hour, £50 per 2 hour session. Fees are payable monthly in advance by bank transfer or using childcare vouchers as we are OFSTED registered.

There is an additional monthly fee of £18.99 per month for the detailed marking and feedback of creative writing. This is paid as a PayPal subscription using a discount code to

Classes commence from September of the start of the academic year and run through half-terms and school holidays. Year 5 groups will only get Christmas and New Year and a week over Easter off.

The syllabus will cover level 5 to level 6 of KS2 in English and Maths from September to May. From then on, to the exams, the students will be taken to level 7 of KS3.

Homework is set through Dropbox by email after every session. Year 5 students can expect to receive homework that will take them an hour a day, 5 days a week to complete. This will include Maths, a writing task and/or comprehension every week. From May of the academic year to the exams, homework will include practice papers.

The groups will have term-exams at the end of each term. Face to face and online Mock exams will be held at the end of each month from April to September of the academic year. Results and detailed feedback are given after every exam by email.
