Our 11 Plus Booster Classes usually take place during half-term school holidays and at Summer and are usually 3/4 days long for all four subjects. They are taught in small engaging groups and are designed to support and refine your child’s existing 11 plus preparation whether at home or with a tutor. They are not complete courses and will be most suitable for children who have already started 11 plus preparation and are familiar with some of the basic topics.
For the child preparing at home, this presents an opportunity to be taught materials they may have previously found difficult, from experienced tutors; furthermore, they can consolidate and revise the syllabus. It also presents an opportunity for those children who may be isolated in their 11 plus journey to meet with peers, make friends and appreciate they are not alone.
It also enables children to become aware of the level of competition amongst their peers.
Our Booster plus programme starts from 1st of August and runs up to the entrance exams in September for Year 5 children aged 9 and 10 years who will be sitting for the 11 Plus exams. The Booster Plus programme mainly focuses on practising past papers and improving confidence and exam techniques. Children will attend for 12 hours a week over a three-day period.
This is also suitable for children who would need extra last-minute preparation for the entrance exams and the nature of the programme is to mainly focus on revision, building confidence and improving exam techniques. The long summer holiday is a great opportunity to make a considerable improvement with schoolwork, so why not enrol your child for our summer booster courses.
