When your child joins our 11 plus programme they will be laying the foundations they need for their 11+ journey.
Although some grammar schools set their own papers, the majority of the local schools follow either all or part of the syllabus set by the two main providers of 11+ examinations: CEM (Durham University) or GL Assessments. The tests usually consist of a mixture of Maths, English, Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning.
LBC Tuition can help your child as they work towards any of the 11+ Grammar Examinations.
Our 11 Plus tuition programme is designed to build confidence towards the exams and to help children get to grips with the various question types they will meet.
Our 11 + programme covers:
11 Plus Mathematics
The 11 Plus Mathematics part of the course is comprised of the 30 main topics. As the children work through their course, they will be expected to complete examples and make notes while doing so. For high-achievers who complete their work quickly, we provide an extension section.
11 Plus English
For English, work is dependent on the particular tests a child is taking. Work includes exercises in spelling, punctuation, grammar, comprehension and vocabulary.
11 Plus Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning
This part of the course consists of teaching children methods for each question type they may encounter. As they work through the course, they will be expected to complete examples under timed conditions.
11 Plus Exam Technique
Regular re-testing and revision ensures topics are consolidated. To hone a child’s examination techniques we discuss with him or her the different aspects of preparing for the 11+. We can also talk to parents so that they can help their children study by knowing what to work on, the timing of set questions etc.
We also offer Mock exams as one of the biggest hurdles to 11 plus success is confidence. Mock exams give children the opportunity to find out how the exams will be structured and what to expect when they get to the exam room, that way it’s not so scary on the day! It’s also a great way to practice working under timed conditions.
