At primary level, the 8+ examinations determine school entry for children going in to Year 4 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.

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 8+ 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.

Examination Papers at 8+:

  • 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.
