You can get help with GL Transfer test preparation by visiting our tuition website.

On Target Tuition have been helping to prepare children for the GL Transfer Test for the past 12 years from our Lisburn City Centre tuition centre. We noticed a gap in the market for high quality, up to date GL practice papers that mirrored the curriculum set out by the PPTC, therefore we decided to write our own resources because a lot of what was available was outdated or contained questions that would never be asked in the GL tests. From here On Target Resources was born. We hope you find our resources helpful and would be grateful for any feedback you might have.

om and we will be happy to help.
