Entry at 7+, 8+ and 10+

At primary level, the 7+, 8+ and 10+ examinations determine school entry for children going in to Year 3, Year 4 and Year 6 respectively, and are carried out by many of top London day schools. These schools often use their own examination papers, and as such having a tutor with specific experience of the schools in question can be a real advantage.

The examinations include papers in Maths, English and Reasoning, covering a broad sweep of subjects in the primary curriculum.

Examination papers at 7+, 8+ and 10+:

  • 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 7+, 8+ and 10+ 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.

"We definitely want Louise for half term. A is really enjoying working with her she seems to be able to strike the perfect balance of getting the work done in a way that A almost does not realise he is learning and sees it as fun, which with a very full on school environment at the moment prepping for 8+ is exactly what we need."
Mrs T Kensington
