Laying foundations for the 11+

When your child joins our Pre 11 plus tuition programme they will be laying the foundations they need for their 11+ journey.

Although some grammar schools set their own papers, the majority of 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 Extra Tuition Centre can help your child as they work towards any of the 11+ Grammar Examinations.

Pre 11 Plus (Year 4) Steps to Success

  • Let us know which schools you are interested in, from there we can help you determine which examinations your child needs to work towards.
  • Your child will need to take some online tests. We may look at mathematics, English, verbal and non-verbal reasoning depending on the examinations your child is sitting.
  • The results are entered into our computer system ‘Action’ and an individual programme of work is set – we know where your child needs immediate help and we know what is expected if they are going to study for the eleven plus examinations. So, the lessons are a combination of revision, current learning and pushing them on with the eleven plus syllabus.
  • Weekly lessons are booked either at one of our locations or online with a tutor.
  • Lessons are booked for either 1, 1.5 or 2 hours a week
  • Regular re-testing and revision ensures topics are consolidated

Persuade has been great help right from when I met her since June 2014 when I began. I have just been improving in all subjects. Persuade teaches in an excellent manner and is very kind. Whenever I am confused on anything, Persuade is there to assist me. I have worked with her for just over a year nabs after every lesson, I feel more confident in my work. The way she explains anything is plain magic, I understand whatever she says, whenever she says it. Due to her input, I have passed my 11 plus .I am really proud of myself sand I than her teaching. As I commenced tuition with her, verbal reasoning was simply bugging me. I had known nothing about the subject. Although, as I developed, it began to sit in my mind and I it become that simpler. None verbal was no easier at first either but with the help of persuade, the easier it got. Persuade is kind and helpful and is a pleasant tutor. I am so thankful to her and I couldn’t have chosen someone better. Thank you so much.

When I first started my first Math’s test I remember I used to get in the tens in Math’s. But then when I had more lessons with Persuade I got better at all subjects of Math’s. I find most of the subjects easy now in the Math’s and I am now extremely good in verbal reasoning. I really loved having my lessons at expert tutors and also getting ice creams in some of our lessons too. Thank you so much Persuade for teaching me.

When I first started tuition with Ms Ziki I was ok at Math’s and not so go at English and after my first lesson I still though I wasn’t going to pass my 11 plus until I had more lessons and that’s when I got much better at my subjects and also learnt some new ones as well. At first I did not know what I was doing but Miss Ziki helped me on the way. I have improved so much and learnt new things. Ms Ziki has taught me so much. Having Ms Ziki as a tutor was the best. I learnt perimeters, area, formal and informal letters and so much more. At first I was rubbish at it all but because of Miss Ziki, she helped me on the way and I know it all. I got confused with Perimeter and area because it was just hard until Ms Ziki talked me through it and I got the hang of it. Now that I passed my 11 plus I feel like I can do anything. Thank you so much.

I just wanted to say a really big thank you to you for being James tutor. I was struggling as you know with James being a single mom with a very bright child who was lazy!! (Trying had to get out of everything) You came along, James was a challenge as he always thought he could get away with doing things in an easier way, you recognised his potential and boy did you help. I am so grateful, you really care, your dedication is admirable, and we would lose without you. I would not hesitate to recommend you. If anybody wants to speak they can call me. My son not only passed his 11 plus but got one of the highest marks way to go James …. and Persuade.
