Welcome to the forum.
The English is simply an essay. It's a couple of years since my child sat the test but at that time you were given a title and around 30 minutes to complete the essay.
It is only used to select the final 25% of the candidates in conjunction with the VR and Maths. I would concentrate on verbal reasoning which is weighted double that of the maths test. The essay will not be important if your child goes through in the top 232 candidates. http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/school ... re-11-plus
If you are looking for suitable VR practice papers these are all good viewtopic.php?f=12&t=4782&p=48510#p48510
The maths paper should be KS2 material.
