11 Plus Tuition

The 11+ exams are the first major hurdle that children face in their academic careers.  It is an exam for selective entry secondary schools that students sit in Year 6 for entrance into Year 7. It is not a compulsory test but it continues to be used by Grammar and some Independent Schools. The 11+ is a one off test and cannot be retaken.

Greater London Tutors has a wide selection of experienced 11+ tutors in all areas of London.  We have successfully prepared students for Grammar schools such as Henrietta Barnett, The Latymer School, Tiffins, St Michael’s Catholic Grammar, Queen Elizabeth Boys and Dame Alice Owen, among others. Our experienced tutors also have excellent track records with entry to Independent schools including Westminster, City of London, Latymer Upper, Dulwich College, Lady Eleanor Holles, Colet Court and the North London Consortium Girls Schools.

There are four subjects that are tested for the 11+: Maths, English, Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning, but each test is different and the combination varies from school to school. We have a large selection of tutors who ensure students are fully up to speed with the requirements for the English and Maths tests, and help with preparation for the less familiar Reasoning tests.

Our 11+ private tutors in London are experienced in ensuring that pupils are fully prepared for the exams through a two step process.

  • Firstly they assess the pupil in English, Maths and Reasoning to pinpoint the areas that need attention.
  • The tutor will then develop a course of tuition to ensure the student progresses to the right standard by the time of the exams.  This course of tuition will involves a mixture of syllabus teaching and exam practice.

Preparation for the 11+ usually begins at the start of Year 5, which ensures that the pupil has at least a year to familiarise himself or herself with the tests. It is essential the students prepare for their tests, and feel comfortable working under timed conditions.

Tutors for the 11 plus are in demand throughout London, and at Greater London Tutors we ensure that we have many fantastic tutors in all areas of London, so that we can fully assist you and your child with their preparation.

In addition to one to one support, Greater London Courses holds 11 plus targeted revision group revision courses for students preparing for the independent and grammar school entrance tests. We hold summer holiday revision courses, half term revision courses, and Christmas and Easter holiday courses. The courses last for one week and include a mock test, and are held by one of our expert 11 plus experienced tutors. We also hold three day 11+ Introduction Courses in the Autumn Half term for students in Year 5.
