ElevenPlusExams Tuition

ElevenPlusExams Tuition centre is based in Harrow, North-West London and services the tuition needs of all grammar and independent schools by providing a professional and personal service to ensure a stress free passage through the 11 plus journey.

ElevenPlusExams Tuition provides 11 plus tuition for year 5 and year 4 children in all subjects and caters for the main examining boards and regions including GL/NFER, Moray House, CEM, CSSE and ISEB.

All our classes are held at our centre at Congress House where our classes are equipped with state of the art technology. Utilising our own in-house developed software, we make learning fun, easy and classes highly interactive, leaving no child behind.

The technology helps us to easily monitor all students’ progress in work done during class sessions as well as in their homework where we are able to monitor progress alongside speed and accuracy. This enables us to more easily identify and target weaknesses early in the process, making preparation for the exam far more efficient and thereby less stressful for both child and parent.

ElevenPlusExams Tuition Approach

ElevenPlusExams Tuition Centre Reception

Our courses have three stage structure pioneered by us: a Foundation, a Common Core and Specialisation

The Foundation stage confirms every child has the basic building blocks to succeed at 11plus and includes rapid mental arithmetic, mental agility and a robust vocabulary.

The Common Core stage confirms that all the requirements common to the exam boards are addressed first. This makes the child more versatile and preparation more agile should the exam board change with minimal notice.

The final Specialisation stage ensures that all the known nuances of the specific exam board for the target school are methodically addressed through practice and exam preparation.

Our approach to the exams is to implant the exam board specific necessary methods and techniques prevalent in each 11 plus subject (numerical reasoning, verbal reasoning, Mathematics, English and non-verbal reasoning) and then provide a thorough bank of proprietary questions (online and paper based) unique to our Centre to enhance speed and accuracy.

All students will receive the same lessons during the first two terms. In the final term the timetable will change and children will be placed in their chosen school/exam board groups to receive specialist training. This may mean a change to your child’s usual time slot. Parents will be asked to confirm their chosen school/exam board by March 2018 of the year 5 course as this is when the admission policies of schools are determined.

Throughout the process, we constantly monitor the child’s progress and look to address any weaknesses early in the process.

To seal the process, the course also covers exam techniques suitable for different types of exam boards.

Central to the whole 11plus process is the foundation of a strong vocabulary base and excellent mental arithmetic skills. We therefore monitor both from the outset.

In a typical class we will cover several methods and techniques across the subjects with in-house technology and worksheets used to ensure that the children have grasped the content of the lesson. Spot tests take place regularly.

Homework will then be set, which will be both paper based and online. For the latter parents need to ensure that that their child will have internet access.

Practice papers are introduced in the final stages of the course as exam preparation.

The mock exams, separate from in-class practice papers (under timed conditions), are open to external candidates. They form an integral part of the actual preparation and all students are required to sit these; it also provides a useful form of benchmarking your child’s relative progress and performance against a wider cohort of external students.

Our courses are all inclusive and comprehensive, so parents can be assured that there will be no extra charges.

In common with many 11 plus centres, we would advocate that the optimal preparation begins in Year 4 and intensifies in Year 5. Most of the actual grammar exams are sat in the first term of Year 6 and independent schools in the second term, usually January.

The final term of the course includes 10-12 weeks of mock exams which conclude in mid-August, just before the real exams. This exam-training phase of the course helps build up your child’s confidence and reduces exam day anxieties.

Our charges include all materials, mock exams and access to the online question bank platform and an online vocabulary game. Value for money is given by ensuring that the majority of lesson time is spent teaching and that children do not do undertake tests or worksheets in the classroom that they could easily do at home. We never waste valuable classroom time and do not allow children to mark their own tests.
