The Experts in delivering 11 Plus tuition to your children

Results

Over thirty years of successful tuition for the Essex 11 Plus examination. Our pass rate is consistently over 96% with over 54 students gaining the Grammar school of their choice in 2018.

We have taught 7 students who went on to not only pass the 11 Plus but come first in county against over 4000 candidates.

When to start tuition

Students usually begin 11 Plus preparation at the beginning of Year 4 however Year 5 students are accepted. Students gain a broad, balanced, quality background so that when they pass the 11 Plus they are ready for life in the Grammar school.

What is taught

Maths, English and Verbal Reasoning. Being completely up to date with the new Essex examinations and preparing students thoroughly.

In English composition, comprehension, vocabulary, grammar and punctuation are taught. Examination and literary techniques which are crucial to success in English are practised regularly.

The Maths examination is far beyond the reach of primary school Maths, no matter how able a student is they still need to have the correct curriculum, plenty of practice and the experience of working at the same speed as other able students from a 40 mile radius.

The Eleven Plus is a competitive examination and it is crucial to teach in small groups which have been set by ability. This raises speed, focus and builds friendships which will continue throughout Grammar school and on to university.

How students are taught

In Year 4 students are taught an excellent foundation in Maths, including the more advanced topics they will cover in Year 5 but with simpler numbers or fewer operations.

In English inference is taught on a steadily progressing program with students becoming detectives; using highlighters to gather evidence from the text. Perfect answer games encourage them to focus and be brave in answering a question, then supporting it with evidence. Prizes are won and praise is given.

All classes are tutor led and as the 11 Plus is a pen and paper exam students are taught in the same way. The tutor teaches from the front of the class and then, assisted by a mentor, circulates helping each student as and when appropriate. Student work is constantly monitored with tutors seeing immediately if a student requires help. There are a maximum of 12 students in each class with students working on a 1 adult to 6 students ratio.

Books are marked by our junior mentors (who are our successful students now in Years 10-13). Any mistakes are worked through in class and praise is given.

People do well in life by going beyond what is asked of them. We award prizes every week to any student who has done work they have not been asked to do. Our prizes are toys, sweets or stationery.
