When to start preparing for the 11 Plus

May 22, 2018

Grammar schools are looking for children with high levels of maths and English skills, as well as the ability to perform under pressure – so the exams aren’t easy. It’s never too early to start preparing for the 11 Plus or entrance exams!

Fearless learners

The good news is that Explore Learning can support your family to prepare for the 11 Plus and entrance exams straight away, working in partnership with you to get the best results.

Whether your child is sitting a CEM, GL Assessment or a school’s own entrance paper, we adapt our tools to suit many of the local consortia.

Our 11 Plus and Entrance Exam course

Your child will benefit from two sessions a week at Explore. One session is an hour-long class specifically covering the content of the 11 Plus course, including verbal and non-verbal reasoning. We use practice papers and exam techniques to help familiarise your child with the questions and conditions of taking the test.

The other hour-long session focuses on boosting core maths and English knowledge and skills, which are not only vital for the 11 Plus exams but also to build a solid foundation for your child’s future successes.

Nearly half (47%) of parents say they don’t know much about their child’s exam preparation.* You’ll receive feedback after every visit to Explore Learning, so that you can be safe in the knowledge that your child is on the right track.

With over 15 years of experience, we’ve seen thousands of children hold their heads up high and fearlessly tackle the exams. And when your child is ready to take their next steps in grammar school and beyond, Explore Learning is by your side every step of the way.

Contact your local Explore Learning team today to get started.
