Entry at 11+

The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future in life. | Plato

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.
