I feel like my 11+ journey never ends... My eldest has just started at Westcliff Boys, my middle daughter has just gone into year 5 and so will be sitting in 2016. My youngest has just gone into year 3 so at least I can take an 11+ breather in 2017!
My eldest was tutored not because of capability but because I wanted him to get used to exam format reading questions properly etc. Unfortunately the primary school the first 2 are at doesn't really focus on 11+ so we did lots of past paper work ourselves at home too. My youngest has just started at a different junior school where they do a lot more 11+ provision.
I can beat that!! My eldest is year 8 at SHSB, my next is year 7 at CCHS, my next just started in year 5, my next is year 3 and my youngest just started school so our 11+ journey will finish in.....2021/22!!
