How we prepare your child

The eleven plus exams are constantly evolving but usually consist of two test papers. Common subjects tested are maths and English, however they can have verbal and non-verbal reasoning questions as well. Our 11 plus course is based on the exams used by the schools in Sutton and Wallington. We can also prepare your child for schools in Croydon and Kingston.

Current exam format

The current exam format is split evenly between English and maths therefore we spend an hour on each subject. We also spend some time practising verbal and non verbal tests. During each lesson their work is marked and feedback given on progress.
We are constantly updating our course to reflect any changes to the exams.

Preparation for students in Year 4

In year 4, students can attend any day or time and focus on the core skills in maths and English. We aim to get through as much of the year 4 and 5 curriculum as possible in preparation.  Some topics we cover are mental maths, fractions, decimals, percentages, Vocabulary (synonyms, opposites and plurals) Spelling,  Grammar, Punctuation & Comprehension.

Preparation for students in Year 5

In year 5, we run weekly two hour classes on Fridays and Saturdays. Students work through set topics in maths and English and are taught any concepts they need help with. We work in small groups and one to one where necessary. Students are given homework to complete before next week's lesson. The main aim is to ensure that students are confident in all topics before we move on to speed, accuracy and exam preparation. 


How we teach maths

Maths preparation involves a balance of learning & testing.

Step 1
Most students won't be taught the maths work required for the 11+ exam at primary school. Therefore the starting point is learning the core topics and calculation work. We continue with core topics throughout the year to ensure the foundations are solid.

Step 2
We then move to timed tests to start building speed and accuracy. This is where a lot of students start finding things difficult. We have very supportive staff to help them through this stage and keep them focused on the exam.

Step 3
When students have stopped making little mistakes and have improved their attention to detail we move on to the more difficult 11 Plus tests. By this stage students will have covered 90% of the curriculum and will work on speeding up.

How we teach English

English skills take time to develop so we recommend reading every day.

Step 1
There are three main skills needed for the 11+ exam: multiple choice, written comprehension, and essay writing. Our lessons cover topics such as reading, writing, spelling, punctuation and grammar. 

Step 2
Writing skills are taught including, effective planning, creativity, correct use of punctuation and grammar, correct spellings and vocabulary. We spend a large amount of time teaching the core skills before building speed and accuracy.

Step 3
As with the maths, we will only start using 11 plus tests once the students have a high level of confidence. At this stage we expect students to be reading and writing to a very high standard and making very few mistakes.
