The 10 & 11 Plus Exams
This exam is a grammar school entrance exam that is sat at the start of year 6. It is called the 11 Plus because the age at which pupils start grammar school is 11.
Most children will be 10 years old when they sit the 11 Plus exam. There are 164 grammar schools in England.
We consider one-to-one tuition to be by far the most effective way for a pupil to learn. The progress one pupil can make in a matter of weeks can be immense.
There are a number of reasons why it works so well.
Mock Exams & Writing Skills
Sometimes even highly able pupils fail the 11+ exam. One reason for this is lack of exam practice in exam conditions. We offer 6 11 Plus mock exams during the summer to prepare pupils for the real giving them competitive environment of 11 Plus tests.
