If your child has the potential to benefit from a grammar school education you will want to make sure they are fully prepared for the exams.
Generally, we advise that you start planning for tutoring by the autumn term of year 5, especially as all exams now happen early in the autumn term of year 6. This allows plenty of time to prepare, to secure knowledge and skills as well as perfect exam techniques.
With the exams happening at the beginning of the school year, it also means that children benefit from a steady development of their skills and knowledge rather than last minute cramming. It means that the summer holiday is not fraught with exam preparation. Depending upon holiday arrangements, families have either continued some tutoring through the summer or just have a top up revision and refresh in late August or early September before the exams.
Local knowledge of 11 plus requirements
There are 14 local authorities in the UK with selective grammar schools with different arrangements in each area and in each school.
Our teams of tutors across the UK have experience of the different 11 plus exams in their area. They can assess your child’s current ability and prepare a programme of tuition to build maths and English skills as well as verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning as required.
The ideal is to have a steady programme of learning that is engaging and enjoyable, that will develop your child’s abilities and skills and prepares them not only for the exams but for the rigour and demands of grammar school life in year 7.
