11+ Eleven Plus

The Eleven Plus (11+) is a test taken by children at the start of Year 6 (primary school) and is used as a means to determine whether or not they are capable of a place at a grammar school. Competition for places is very high and the 11+ exam is challenging even for the brightest children.

We at Aston Tuition make every effort to prepare your child for the 11+ examination and enable him/her to perform as well as they possibly can. The 11+ exam contains questions across different areas such as Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning, Maths and English. We use material (books and exam papers) from a range of publishers to ensure that your child has the best chance of success.

We can explain the format of the exam to you, as well as the application process and also answer any questions you might have about the examination. There is a lot of pressure on children to pass the 11+ exam and we understand that this can sometimes lead to them not being able to perform well in the exam. Consequently, we do our best to prepare each child so that he/she is mentally ready to take on the exam. Our tutors have studied at Grammar schools which means that having been through the entire process themselves, they have a very good understanding of what is required to succeed.
