Group Lessons & Prices

 Group Lessons for 6-18 yrs

Group lessons for primary and secondary pupils (6-18 yrs) take place in London and around the UK, typically with 2 to 6 children. We do not teach 5-year-olds, as they require more individual attention to grasp the basics.

Sessions involve direct work and demonstrations, with 10-minute daily homework assigned for essential practice. Group lessons boost learning by providing collaborative, enjoyable, and supportive environments. They contribute to a formal and effective educational setting, fostering a friendly and fun learning atmosphere. The repetition in group activities speeds up learning by reinforcing concepts and skills rapidly.

 Completion Time

Pupils require around 10-12 single lessons or 5-6 double lessons to complete the whole programme. There may be slight variations, depending on the severity of the handwriting and the age of the child. 

The Magic Link handwriting programme is an evidence-based method which is proven to be highly effective, as we collect before-and-after samples from every child who completes the course, and the amazing transformations unequivocally confirm the success of the programme. Our commitment to measurable results ensures the programme’s credibility and impact on students’ handwriting skills.

30 Simple Steps

There are 30 steps in the whole programme and each step teaches formation of words, sentences, numbers, punctuation and free writing, resulting in progressively neater handwriting. Each step is colour-coded and serves as a motivator adding fun to the learning process. Magic Link provides an essential skill increasing confidence and grades.

45 or 90 minute sessions

Children receive instruction in small groups, where they engage in highly-structured single lessons lasting 45 minutes or 90 minute double sessions which allow faster completion of the programme. Our group lessons have proven to be excellent and effective, encouraging children to collaborate and achieve maximum improvement in handwriting, spelling, confidence and speed.

Price – Initial Consultation

£40 for single lessons, or

£80 for double lessons

Plus £120 for workbook pack


We teach children aged 6-18 yrs old and do not teach 5-year-olds. We wait until they are 6 to introduce cursive, allowing a better understanding of the basics.

On average it takes 10-12 single lessons or 5-6 double lessons to complete the whole programme. We recommend that pupils who are over 7 years old, or 6 year olds who have good concentration, receive 90-minute double lessons to complete the programme faster.

In group lessons, children build confidence in handwriting and spelling. The initial consultation includes a ‘before’ handwriting sample, and students receive three Magic Link workbooks. The final workbook reinforces neat, cursive handwriting, improving speed, spelling, presentation, and confidence.

Students are advised to buy recommended pens and pencils from our website to use in our group lessons and at their school. The  consultation fee applies to pupils who have not attended Magic Link classes for 12 months or more.

Price – Subsequent Lessons (per child)

£40 for single lessons, or

£80 for double lessons

Children who receive single 45-minute lessons typically need 10 to 12 lessons to complete the course. Those who choose 90-minute double lessons usually complete the course in 5 to 6 lessons. 

Children are required to copy sentences for 10 minutes per day in their Magic Link homework book, to achieve maximum potential, as quickly as possible. The final workbook contains a wide variety of consolidation exercises to reinforce neat, cursive handwriting to improve speed, spelling, presentation, story writing and confidence. At the end of the programme (step 30) pupils transfer their new skill to school work.

To showcase the incredible transformation achieved through the Magic Link handwriting programme, we provide every parent with a “before” and “after” sample at the conclusion of the programme. These samples serve as a testament to the remarkable progress made by our students.
