Preparation for the 11 Plus Entrance Examination

Our 11 Plus tuition programme is designed to build confidence towards the exams and to help children get to grips with the various question types they will meet.

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.

We can help your child as they work towards any of the 11+ Grammar Examinations.

11 Plus 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 an assessment. 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

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.

Persuade was recommended by my sister as she tutored her eldest son who is currently a year 9 pupil at Gravesend Grammar school. Ryan is flying at GGS, intact he is taking his GCSE Math’s in year 9. Luke, my son was as most young boys reluctant to do extra work and moaned constantly about doing all the additional homework. However, he did do this and has learnt so much from Persuade that he is confident in Math’s now and this is reflected in his results at school and more importantly his 11 plus results. Persuade is very talented and fantastic teacher as well as being lovely person. My husband and I are so grateful to persuade and would have no hesitation in recommending her for tutoring.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to you for tutoring my daughter Hasham, who successfully passed both the Medway and that selection tests. Medway test scores, verbal reasoning 128 mathematics 114, extended writing 115= 579

Kent Test scores 404\423= 95.5 %. I would therefore highly recommend you to any parent who is looking for for a private tutor for their child/ children.

When I first started having lessons I was alright at Math’s and not so good at English. Then as the lessons continued Miss Ziki taught me that even if you struggle never give up. I am very happy with what I have learnt. I wouldn’t have been able to do anything that I can do now. I thought the lesson was hard at first. But then everything got easier as I had more and more lessons. Miss Ziki is the best, she has helped me so much and Math’s and English have become so much easier. Even though she got frustrated at me (and my spellings) she is the best tutor anyone can ask for.
