Where can I find out more about the 11 Plus ?
Our branch managers will be able to answer most of your questions regarding 11 plus tuition. However, if you want to find out more ask your Local Education Authority, the Grammar or Independent Schools whose selective tests your child will be sitting.
What teaching methods do you use to prepare students for the 11 Plus?
We offer focused 11 plus tuition in order to prepare children for sitting the Grammar School entry exams. We prefer to keep to small class sizes, especially for verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning lessons as often children will not have experience of this style of question before.
GK Tuition 11 Plus teaching model is as follows:
1. Asses current ability
2. Identify gaps
3. Develop core skills
4. Exam performance boost
Along with one to one teaching, we employ a range of tests to help get students exam ready and boost exam performance, please contact us for details
All children are given a FREE initial assessment to determine what year level they’re currently working at and to identify any learning gaps.
An individual learning programme is then created to target exactly what your child needs help with. The programme is carefully designed so that your child progresses at their own pace.
Your child starts on the GK Tuition programme at the level suited to their current ability and knowledge.
Depending on what needs to be taught, your child’s individualised learning programme may consist of a combination of the following activities:
6. Written Expression
7. Vocabulary Development
- Assessing Progress
Your child will be starting at a foundational level and will work their way up to the goal set. Each week their lesson plan contains new activities that build on the knowledge they learnt in the previous week.
We reassess students towards the end of the year OR when a child has potentially reached their goal.
