11 Plus

The 11+ exam is often viewed with apprehension. What type of schools require children to sit the assessment? Do students need private tuition, or can they cope by themselves? Does every school test children in the same way? At Keen Tuition, we want to make senior school applications as simple and stress-free as possible.

Make Your Kids Future Great with Keen Tuition 


11+ Exam refers to competitive school entrance exams that are typically required for entrance to selective independent and grammar schools in the UK. These types of exams are called 11+ exams as they refer to the age that a child will be in the year that they start in that school, many eleven plus exams are highly selective.

This exam has changed dramatically in recent years, with examiners insisting that it is “tutor-proof”. However, the fact remains that although 75% of the exam is based on the national curriculum, the remaining 25% won’t necessarily be. In addition, schools are not in a position to teach specifically towards this exam.

This leaves a gap in knowledge – and practice – that is filled by our expert 11+ exam tutors

Children only get one chance at the 11 plus, and how they perform determines where they will go next. Parents can make a valuable contribution to their child’s learning. Many parents with the time and knowledge manage successfully without professional help. However, if you work full time, the commencement of extra-schooling can be a challenge. Similarly, if English is not your first language, or you struggle with Maths, preparing your child for the 11 plus exams can seem daunting.
