We want every child to reach their potential and do their very best in school. For the 11 Plus or other entrance exams, this means they will need to have a high level of maths and English skills and be able to answer questions quickly and accurately.

11 Plus tuition

From experience, we know that the best preparation for the exams cannot be achieved in a short period of time. Our 11 Plus and Entrance Exam course is structured in three key sections, supporting your child from Year 4 right through to the exam.

Whilst children are able to join our course at any point, we thoroughly recommend joining from the start and attending all three stages, supporting your child right through to the exam. The key to success in the 11 Plus is high levels of confidence and ability in core maths and English skills. These will not only be tested within the exam, but are key to ensuring that your child is able to thrive in a grammar school environment.
