11 Plus Tuition

Preparing for the 11 Plus Exam

11 Plus Wirral specialises in one to one and small group private tuition for children who wish to continue their education in one of Wirral’s Grammar Schools. These include: Wirral Grammar School for Boys and Wirral Grammar School for Girls, West Kirby Grammar School for Girls and Calday Grammar School for Boys.

Our 11 Plus Courses are for children in year 3, 4 and 5. Tuition covers all areas of the 11 Plus Exam including; English, Verbal Reasoning, Mathematical Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning. The children are tutored by qualified and experienced teachers, who have a proven track record of outstanding exam results. All our tutors are DBS checked. Please visit our testimonials page to discover what our customers say about our tutors. We find that one to one tuition or tuition in small groups of no more than 5 children is the most effective form of 11 Plus tuition. The tutors identify pupil’s strengths and weaknesses and focus on teaching the areas of improvement.

11 Plus tuition takes place once a week after school and the lessons are 60 minutes long. We may also be able to provide additional hours each week, if you would like your child to attend more than one tutorial a week. The one to one tutorials take place in the tutors’ homes based at various locations around the Wirral and small group tuition takes place in the 11 Plus tutoring classroom, based at Hoylake Community Centre.

Homework is set at the end of each lesson and is an important part of the children’s learning process. We encourage parents to support their child at home by ensuring that homework is completed each week.

The 11 Plus exam is provided by CEM. The academic standard for this exam is aligned to the National Curriculum for year 5 and 6, and children will need to have a broad knowledge of vocabulary, comprehension and be able to solve mathematics problems based around reasoning.
