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+ Bootcamp - An Intensive 11 Plus Summer Course
 
 
This intensive "bootcamp" course consists of 5 consecutive mornings, a total of 15 hours. The  course will be repeated with different content so you can book into more than one if you wish to. The cost of each bootcamp is £200 which works out at a very reasonable £13.33 per hour.
 
This course is intended as a revision course for children who have already had tuition. It is not a substitute for ongoing weekly tutoring.
 
 
Throughout the course there will be emphasis on exam technique and time management. There will be some tasks to complete at home.
