Eleven Plus Tutors
Eleven plus (11+) & Entrance Tests Tuition
The eleven plus (11+) and equivalent entrance exam tests are very much in use in the Trafford, Manchester and Wilmslow area and we have specialist Eleven Plus tutors (11+ tutors), entrance exam test tutors that each has a track record of getting their tutees into their chosen schools. Our eleven plus tutors are familiar with entry requirements for local schools in Lancashire, Manchester, Stockport, Wilmslow, Cheshire areas, some of which are listed below. Our eleven plus tutors can also assess and identify if a child has the ability to pass and how they compare with their peer group.
Did you know?
- 82% of grammar school children had some tutoring to get them in! 
- Only about 30% of children sitting the entrance exam test / eleven plus (11+) for a selective grammar school are successful – additionally, these are likely to be the children that had some form of sustained coaching or tutoring to help them prepare for the test.
- Competition for entry to local grammar schools is very fierce such that an 80% pass mark doesn’t guarantee a place?
- Your child should be aiming towards achieving level 5+ up to a whole year early!
But don’t let this put you off, just be prepared and ideally leave plenty of preparation time. Usually, children that can cope with the high academic standards of a grammar school, and with additional help, stand a good chance of passing the entrance exam test and getting into their chosen school. Do you want your child to be one of the successful 30% that get into grammar school? If so, then let our experienced entrance exam and eleven plus (11+) tutors help! Tutoring will give your child the advantage and improve their chances of passing the eleven plus (11+) and/or entrance test for your chosen school.
Tutoring for the 11+ really works
Its official! Tutoring for the eleven plus (11 plus) can help your child secure a place. Studies by Professor Brendan Bunting, an educational psychologist from the University of Ulster , have shown a relationship between intensive coaching and success in 11 plus verbal reasoning tests: two separate studies showed that children coached for 9 months or more improve 11-plus scores by 30 - 40%.
So, a child that might achieve 63% in the test without tutoring might be able to score 88% with tutoring. A 20 point, 25% increase could make all the difference between failing and clearly passing. Another study showed that 443 out of 544 parents from 26 grammar schools had either paid professional tutors to coach their children or had provided extra help themselves - this amounts to a whopping 82% of respondents .
