From what age can my child start 11 Plus tuition?

Children can join our 11 Plus programmes at any time. Our foundation course starts for children in Year 3 focusing on building concrete maths and English skills. For children in Year 4 our course introduces exam content and problem solving skills that they will face in entrance exams. Once children are in Year 5 we develop advanced knowledge, speed and accuracy to achieve exam success.

Is my child guaranteed to pass their 11 Plus exam?

11 Plus exams are highly competitive and selective exams so we cannot guarantee that your child will pass. What we can ensure is that your child is given the opportunity to do their very best with the knowledge, confidence and understanding of the exam they are going to sit. We work really hard to bring enjoyment to their experience and send your child away with a fearless approach to learning.

How much homework do you set?

Homework is set according to your child's individual needs. We combine digital and paper-based resources to give your child unlimited practice materials that you can access wherever and whenever you need them.

Do you offer mock exams?

Mock exams form a crucial part of your child's preparation for 11 Plus and take place towards the end of the course.

Can my child prepare for more than one school entrance exam?

Yes. Our lessons are tailored to meet the requirements of the local schools in your area. Our managers will advise you on the best programme of work to follow so that your child covers all the material necessary for their chosen schools.
