Post subject:  English Paper Help

Can anyone recommend any resources or tips for helping my son to study for the English paper? He’ll be sitting the entrance exam for the Halifax Grammar schools in Calderdale, Yorkshire this September.

I'm finding he’s struggling with the comprehension part most (reading the passage and then interpreting the language used / having to write about it etc)
His answers always seem to to be very literal, rather than understanding how to read between the lines.

As the school writes their own papers for english, I've no idea how to help him study better. I've got some bond and CGP books already which we use.

Any help is much appreciated.
Thank you.
