Eleven plus (11+) tuition and mock exams by Kate Marke, a full time 11+ tutor and experienced primary school teacher.
Children who receive tuition for nine months or more improve their scores at 11+ by up to 40% so the earlier you start the better.
Many children start tuition in Year 4 to get a head start and we strongly recommend that tuition is started no later than the beginning of Year 5

 11+ Mock Exams
In 2017 we are running seventeen mock exam mornings: alternating between two 45 minute CEM style exams on the first week and English and maths in the style of the Torbay tests the second week. This will reflect the pattern that the Torbay grammar schools themselves have chosen to adopt. On the final mock, you decide which tests you wish to do. 

Feedback is provided along with suggestions for extra work where required. The cost of each morning is £20.
You can book for one or all seventeen mocks although it makes sense to book in pairs so that all elements of the exams are experienced. The more mocks children sit, the more likely they are to be successful in the actual 11+. Experience has shown that ten mocks (5 pairs) are the minimum required.

Each of our CEM style mocks will be in a different format to reflect the unpredictable format of the real thing. Therefore, the more mocks your child does, the better they will be prepared to 'expect the unexpected'. 
These mocks provide excellent exam preparation. We make the mocks as close to the real thing as we can. Children experience an exam environment and learn to deal with time management. The early exams highlight areas where further study is required and the later exams help to prevent children "slipping backwards" during the long summer holiday.

In the final two months leading up to the 11+, the mock exams are vital preparation and should take precedence over tutoring if you feel that both would be too much.

As one happy parent said recently:
"I am pleased to be able to let you know that he got three Yes's on his results and so will go to the Boys Grammar as we hoped. Needless to say we are all delighted. The mock tests he did with you this summer were a great help and a key part of his preparations so we would all like to say thank you very much for your help and advice".
What makes our 11+ Mock Exams special?
  • We have specifically tailored our mocks to mirror the tests set by the Torbay Grammar Schools. 
  • We produce a results and feedback report which will usually be available within 1-3 days.
  • We strive to provide the best mock papers available.

Our mock exams are held on Saturday mornings in Torquay.
