Course Content & Structure
Prior to commencing tutoring, all students will undergo a comprehensive assessment.
Following the initial assessment, a parental feedback session is arranged to agree a structured personal learning plan based on your school preferences.
As with all our 11 plus tuition courses there is great flexibility in the course so that individual work can be tailored to meet your child’s needs.
The core year 5 11 plus programme will cover all the main subject areas that are tested within the 11 plus exams. We offer a range of flexible course options covering maths, English, verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning.
Our maths course covers all the key topic areas that are tested within the 11 plus exam and it is also an excellent course to help your child excel in their maths at school as it also focusses on advanced mathematical reasoning and problem-solving skills with plenty of exam question practice.
The 11plus requires a strong grounding in English so in addition to encouraging your child to read regularly and widely, we will also cover targeted work to improve spelling, vocabulary, grammar, word work and writing.
In addition to this we will also cover 11plus advanced comprehension skills including a key focus on developing the key skill of reading between the lines in advanced reading texts and passages. Fiction, non-fiction, poetry and the analysis of classical and contemporary texts are all covered.
The reasoning elements of the course will comprehensively cover all the various different types and styles of questions that can come up in verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning.
