11 Plus

For seven years we have helped students throughout East Kent with the Kent Selection Tests (11 Plus).

With 9 out of 10 children achieving places at grammar schools, we believe we are the most successful tuition business in Kent.  2010 (89%), 2011 (90%), 2012 (89%), 2013 (86%), 2014 (93%), 2015 (84%), 2016 (91%), 2017 (91%).

The secret of our success has always been not to coach or tutor specifically for the Kent Selection tests: children are taught the whole curriculum and what we believe children should know.

In maths, we cover the national curriculum and encourage students to think carefully about the questions and use common sense.  We also don’t revisit the same questions repeatedly – Doing so, simply allows students to memorise the answers, not how to find the answers.

During the course children are not only exposed to written comprehension, but to aural comprehension as well, to help improve concentration and memory.  

With verbal reasoning we run through the different possible sections that may arise and explain the pitfalls – One of the best things a student can do is read as much as possible, this will expose them to many of the words they will need for the tests and for the future.

Non-verbal (and spatial reasoning) is about following patterns.  There are only a small number of changes which can be made to a pattern.  Once a student knows these changes, they can follow the patterns and find the correct answers.
