Entry at 11+

Entry at 11+

Those participating in 11+ examinations in Year 6 for entry to schools in Year 7 will sit papers in Maths, English and Reasoning, with papers for the London Day Schools differing from the Common Entrance papers set by the ISEB (Independent Schools Examinations Board). Where specialised knowledge about individual schools and their entry processes is needed, we have tutors able to give tuition that is geared for the requisite examinations.

Our 11+ tutors are able to cover every area of the primary curriculum in preparation for the examinations.

Examination papers at 11+:

  • MATHS – Using the main operations (+, -, x and ÷), measurement, shapes, fractions, decimals and data handling.
  • ENGLISH – Reading comprehension, grammar, spelling and written composition.
  • REASONING – Verbal and non-verbal reasoning.

Our tutors who specialise in preparing children for these examinations are able to cover all of the necessary topics, as well as tailoring their tuition to help children gain entry to specific schools. Tutors supporting children with the 11+ have an excellent track record of success, and they really make it their aim to nurture a child’s strengths, as well as recognising and addressing any weaknesses.
