What is the 11 + exam?

The 11 Plus exam is a test for grammar and independent schools, that’s taken by children in England before they finish their final year in primary school (year 6). The 11 Plus exam is designed to determine a child’s suitability for grammar schools or other selective schools.

11 Plus can include a selection of 4 subjects: 11 Plus Maths, 11 Plus English, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning exams.

When to start tutoring

Given how difficult the 11+ exams are, Its best to start the 11+ learning as soon as you can. More and more parents are starting in year 3 and allowing their child to gradually cover gaps, solidify foundations and improve on their learning to eventually become faster and better at the papers once they’re ready for exa

Summer school

During the summer before the exams, we hold 11+ classes for all the current year 5s. They have the chance to sit timed mock exams and get feedback to ensure they improve before trying again. This ensures the child is familiar with an exam setting and also gets to see what and how they will be assessed on the day including what the papers and answer sheets will look like.
