The 11+ Year 5 Course
Find out more about the highlights of our 11+ Course below.
The 11+ Course has been carefully developed to build up students' basic knowledge of all the topics and thinking skills required to sit the SW Herts Consortium schools entrance exams.
Once the foundation is laid, students then begin to apply this knowledge to a series of timed trials. These are mini sets of questions, based on each lesson's objective, aimed at improving students' pace and accuracy of work.
Once students are confident with answering questions with good speed and accuracy, they will be stretched and introduced to more challenging and interesting questions.
This carefully developed learning journey is what will give you child the edge over other students taking the entrance exams, giving your child the best chance of succeeding.
Carefully prepared homework booklets
The best way to learn is by preparation and consolidation. This is why students will get carefully prepared homework booklets each week for both Maths and Verbal Reasoning. Every student will get a homework booklet that is thoughtfully designed to consolidate knowledge they have been taught in the lessons that week.
Monthly 11 plus practice exams
Each month, students will be given a practice exam, where they will apply the skills they have gained in lessons, build up confidence and receive valuable feedback on their knowledge and progress.
As a parent, you will be able to see how your child is improving each month and will be given a detailed test analysis report. You will also be able to see how your child is doing compared to the rest of the year.
These practice exams are usually charged at £60 each, but are included for full course students as part of the course.
Small class sizes
As class sizes are so small (max. 10), students will be able to get all the attention and help they will need throughout the lesson, whilst feeling comfortable in a familiar classroom setting, with peers to bounce ideas off of and learn together.
Each class will also receive help from a teaching assistant, making the adult to student ratio 1:5.
