Latest results from Holland House School , Edgware
Holland House School , an independent primary school in Edgware, has an excellent track-record in teaching phonics, using the Butterfly scheme devised by the school principal, Mrs Irina Tyk. Since 1990, its children have had an average reading age far above chronological age as measured on the Holborn test. In the summer of 2004, Reception children had an average chronological age of 5 years 5 months and an average reading age of 9 years 0 months.The class with an average chronological age of 6 years 3 months had an average reading age of 9 years 9 months, and the class with an average age of 7 years 2 months had an average reading age of 11 years 4 months. We are grateful to Irina Tyk for allowing us to print these outstanding results, and we congratulate her, her staff and her pupils.
