11 Plus Support
With extensive experience of helping children gain a place at their selective school of choice, we offer a full 11 Plus preparation programme suitable for children in year 4 and year 5.
11 Plus Course
We cover English, Maths, Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning in our popular 11 Plus course and have expert knowledge into the differences between providers such as CEM, GL or ISEB.
We recommend that children start their 11 Plus preparation at least 12 months before their exams, as we do not believe in "hothousing", however many choose to start earlier. Our tutors are well versed in the different requirements for the 11 Plus, whether for grammar, private or state schools. Our teaching materials are developed to suit the selective schools in your area.
"Marvellous Minds is amazing, fun and educational. It has helped me to improve a lot and the tutors are really nice. I would rate Marvellous Minds with 5 stars!" (Umaayah, aged 11)
11 Plus Tuition
Our small group tuition means that student receive extensive one-to-one support from their tutor while enjoying benefits of interacting with like-minded peers. Our 11 Plus course focuses on the topics across all 11 Plus subject that will feature in the exam, as well as exam technique which we find is a key skill for students to have in order to do well in the 11 Plus exam.
To help students perfect their exam technique we offer regular mock exams with feedback. Our mock exams will give students an opportunity to familiarise themselves with the sort of questions that will come up in the exams and they also get a sense of what the exam experience will be like on the day, mainly the experience of sitting an exam in a timed condition. We also offer a fun and intense 11 Plus revision course over the summer holiday period which covers all of the key 11 Plus topics as well as daily mock exams with marks and detailed feedback from the tutors.
As students preparing for the 11 Plus are expected to cover topics beyond their year group and work at a high academic standard, the course will not be suited to everyone. To ensure that students can get the most appropriate support and make the most of their tuition, we recommend an initial assessment so that we can ascertain their level and recommend the best course of action. We are always happy to discuss a student's specific requirements, academic goals and the support that we can offer so to find out more about our 11 Plus course or to book in for an initial assessment do not hesitate to contact us.
