Our 11 Plus class ensures that children are equipped with both the knowledge and techniques to feel confident to take the entrance exams and are supported in their transition into secondary school.

Whether they are finding school tricky and need additional support or they are reaching their expected level and you wish to challenge them more, we can provide classes aimed at stretching their creativity in writing and strengthen their problem solving skills in maths.

11 Plus and Entrance Exams

We have developed an 11 Plus and Entrance Exam offering that is tailored to suit the schools in your local area. We want every child to reach their potential and do their very best in school, and our tuition is the best possible support on your child’s journey into grammar school.

Our specialist course can help your child prepare for entrance to the following local schools:


Unique approach

Our course is open to all. We don’t pre-test – we welcome any child with the ambition and drive to go to grammar school or independent school. Students on the 11 Plus course attend twice a week and also have access to a fantastic online resource, so they can practise unlimited non-verbal and verbal reasoning exam style questions any time they want.

Tailored flexible session

The key to success at 11 Plus is a strong foundation in core maths and English skills. We use technology that enables us to offer material that is exactly right for your child, and our tutors are on-hand to give individual attention so we can stretch and challenge your child to reach their potential.

Beyond the exam

We don’t believe in simply ‘teaching to a test’ – after all, the test is the very beginning of your child’s journey into their secondary career. To support your child in the run up to, during and once they have made the transition to secondary education, we can continue to support them with the new challenges they face.

How do our current members feel?

The managers Maria, Hannah and Jo are always welcoming to the children and parents alike. When you are giving your children extra tuition, it is always nice to know that they are actually happy to go and work with such a friendly crowd.

Mrs C, Parent

Since he has been studying with Explore Learning taking English, maths, creative writing and 11+ lessons he’s got great improvement in English as well as maths. He’s also been looked after as an individual. I’ve always been informed of his progress. I sincerely want to thank you all and the tutors who have taught him.

Ms J, Parent

My children have both excelled at school and I have no doubt that Explore Learning is one of the main reasons. Even my children have passed comment on how Explore Learning has helped with their work in school.
