Getting into your top preference

11+ examinations determine school entry for children going into Year 7 and are carried out by all Grammer Schools. Our team of experts can support your family along every step of the admission process for schools such as:

Preparing for Grammar School Entrance

Interview Preparation

Children are often interviewed by their prospective Grammar Schools. We have a team of wonderful former Heads providing Interview Preparation at your home or our offices.

The sessions expose the student to the situation and questions they are likely to experience on the day. Although the aim is to primarily support children in passing the Interview stage of admissions, the process also builds confidence and allows them to develop as individuals.

Mock Exams

Mock Exams give your child exposure to the conditions they will experience on the all-important day to build their confidence. As well as improving your child’s Exam Technique, they importantly provide us with key information allowing us to enhance our tuition programs.

Planning a clear Individual Educational Plan (IEP)

Learning Assessments

Our Learning Assessments are the best starting point for tuition. The assessment process highlights the strengths and weaknesses of students and allows Ivy Education to plan the most effective Individual Educational Plan.

IEP

In order to get the most out of the tuition and ensure that all the necessary targets are met, we provide our tutors with an IEP. We ensure you are happy with the targets set, and confident of them being achieved under the guidance of the tutor. The tutor with map out the key objectives of the tuition program and the achievement criteria of each of these targets. Once targets are met, we ask the tutors to provide evidence of these successes.
