11 Plus Preparation Course
YEAR 5: 11 PLUS PREPARATION COURSES - see class info below
a) Year 5 (One Year) Preparation Course: January 2018 to December 2018
b) Year 5 (16 month) Preparation Course: September 2017 to December 2018
Our Year 5 Prepration Courses consists of two courses within one: the weekly 11+ Tuition (teaching) Course and the once monthly Mock Exam Course.
The 11 Plus Preparation Course prepares Year 5 pupils in all four subjects (Mathematics, English, Verbal and Non-verbal Reasoning) as required for their 11+ Entrance Examinations into State Grammar and Private Schools. They will be taught all topics as required for the 11+ in addition to regular mock exam practice including many techiniques to improve their timing.
Tuition is held at various locations on weekdays after school and at weekends. Class locations, days and times are shown in the table below.
Each lesson is 2¼ hours and is split into two parts. One part is an 'individual' teaching session held in a small group of 8 - 10 children. The second part is a timing/technique session and is held in a larger teaching group to provide an exam 'atmosphere' and to enable your child to learn to focus under timed conditions.
Advanced vocabulary work and creative writing are also taught during the larger teaching group sessions to encourage discussion and to enable children to learn from each other. This allows children to develop their writing skills to a high level within a supportive and fun environment.
The Year 5 Course also includes a once monthly mock exam session. This takes place on a Sunday and is 2¾ hours in length. Please see under the Mock Exam Course for further details.
Your child will receive tuition covering all four subjects (Mathematics, English, Verbal and Non-verbal Reasoning) as required for the 11 plus exams. All class books, mock exam papers, assessments, resources and a homework diary are included within the course fees.
Interview technique and practice followed by a mock interview will also be included for those children sitting 11+ exams for private schools.
