Introducing our 7 Plus and 8 plus Tutors in London and Online

At primary level, 7+ and 8+ examinations determine school entry for children going into Years 3 and 4 respectively and are carried out by many of the top London day schools.

The examinations include papers in Maths, English and Reasoning, covering a broad sweep of subjects in the primary curriculum. Top schools often use their own examination papers, so having a tutor with specific experience of the schools in question can be a real advantage.

Our specialist tutors have an excellent track record of success, and they nurture a child’s strengths, as well as recognising and addressing any weaknesses.

You can also see a full list of schools we have prepared students for in the schools advice section of our website.

When should you start preparing for these exams?

As a general rule of thumb, students will start preparing for these exams approximately 12 months before exam dates. This seems like a long time, however, it is best to have tuition less intensively over a longer period of time. This will allow the student to work on gaps in their knowledge before graduating to exam focused work, honing their exam technique.

For an accurate lead time, we recommend taking one of our assessments to isolate strengths and weaknesses and benchmark your child against other students targeting the same schools.
