My daughter's school have suggested that she has the potential to pass her 11+ and that we would probably be best off finding a tutor. Unfortunately we are in the catchment area for CCHS, so we know we face an uphill struggle.

Unfortunately, I don't know anyone who has had a child pass their 11+ exam so the whole 'find a tutor by word of mouth' simply isn't working for us (and to be honest, I'm freaking out a bit about finding the right tutor).

Plus my husband is sceptical about the advantages of going to grammar school and I need to convince him that paying for a tutor won't be flushing money down the drain.

So.... the plan is to try and get our daughter assessed and hopefully prove that she is in with a chance of passing (or walk away from the idea of 11+ tutoring if we have to).

I've found a lovely sounding tutor who advertises 11+ assessments as a separate service to her tutoring. She is over an hours drive from us near Colchester, so it is extremely unlikely we'd be able to sign up for her tutoring services long term.

Would it be really cheeky to ask her for an assessment?
Or does anyone know anybody in South Essex who might be able to offer a stand alone assessment? I'm wary of the big national companies that offer assessments because it sounds more like a sales opp. for them than a true assessment of my daughter's potential.

Any advice would be very much appreciated. Even if it's just to tell me I'm over thinking it all. :D
Thank you.

I don't think it's cheeky. I did the same with a tutor four years ago as I had no idea whether my son was Gs material. She ended up taking him on, even though she was full already!
