Yes I know it seems a little bizarre posting on here for 2015 entry, but that's only 18 months away from the 11 plus date. I'm living in Crowthorne and we are doing some informal study at home in preparation - particularly vocabulary building and making sure we have got a good foundation of maths and English before starting more formal tutoring in September. Interested in hearing from anyone considering applying, particularly in this area so we can set up a little support group for ourselves.

I did the 11 plus many years ago - have found this website invaluable to ensuring we have the right practice materials etc for doing some self tutoring. Look forward to hearing from you all. RG45mum.

Good luck to you on this journey. My DD will be starting at Kendrick in September.

We did DIY and it worked for us. There are plenty of useful guides on here to the right sort of materials but vocab is probably the single biggest area you can easily work on in a little and often way.
I bought the VR download from this site and, although DD didn't really like it, the words that it expected her to know were quite an eye opener. In the end I never left her alone to do the questions on it but just used it as a prompt to learn some new vocab - I often had to explain what several of the options meant in a single multi choice question and I would have said her vocabulary was pretty good. There are a couple of word lists in the free downloads from Patricia which are a good starting point

Yep, younger Dd wants a piece of the action too :lol: We've kept quiet about it until now but last night she said herself she wants to go for Kendrick.

Here we go again then :shock:

Always good when the desire to go comes from themselves.

Glad I don't have to do it again though, 8)
