11+ Foundation

The GL exams in Warwickshire require pupils to know year 6 skills and topics by the end of year 5.  For most children, preparing over a two year course is an invaluable way to cement understanding and gain in confidence by benefitting from extra professional input from Year 4 through to the examination.

 Our Year 4, 11+ foundation course introduces pupils to the core 11+ subjects: English, Maths and Non Verbal Reasoning.  We work on building solid Maths and English foundations by focusing on basics and common topics while gradually introducing pupils to the GL style questions and format of the exams.

In order to help pupils deal with tricky questions we incorporate structured group discussions backed up by 11+ exercises. It will help all pupils to become more independent in their learning. Our sessions are fast-moving, interesting and help build pupils’ confidence. They are also fun!

Research shows building this foundation makes students more receptive to learning GL style questions in Year 5. Therefore Our 11+ course for Year 4 students is the perfect starting point on your child's 11+ journey!!

Group sizes -  Between 2 and 6 students

Resources - We create all lesson and homework material ourselves using original material. Our course material has been extensively researched and is constantly updated to contain the most up-to-date question styles. The 11+ exam is paper based, so most of our work is also paper based. We expect students to bring stationery and a thesaurus to each lesson.

Curriculum - We cover absolutely ALL topics that are likely to appear in the11+: Maths, English, Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning. Our curriculum is thorough and students progress extremely well when they have regular attendance and complete homework tasks.

Progress papers - For gold package students we provide an end of half term progress paper revisiting the topics covered during the half term so that we can track progress. The format of the papers is the same as the 11+ exam and is thus invaluable extra practice. Sitting these, alongside our regular mock exams in year 5, give students ample opportunity to master the intricacies of the 11+ exam style.
