11+ Exam Tutoring

Numeracy and Literacy Skills tests

Some private tutors run 11+ courses to teach children the methods needed for Verbal Reasoning. However, without a strong base of the effectiveness of this approach is limited.

At SPARK our approach is unique regarding the teaching of numeracy and literacy skills, – back to basics, times tables, division, mental arithmetic, etc, mapping to the National Curriculum and prepares children for their year 6 SATS and the transition to secondary school. Alongside the 11+ prep course, students have their own individualised programme to ensure that the underlying skills needed for the 11+ are in place.

"My son's levels have improved dramatically in literacy and numeracy since joining SPARK...he loves the Eleven Plus lessons"- Nuria, Parent

How does SPARK 11 Plus tuition work?

Children attend a 4 hour session over weekends (10am-2pm) Saturday. Contact SPARK by email to find out whether there are spaces available.

Tutoring for the 11 Plus

Our comprehensive 11 Plus and Entrance Exam courses give children the opportunity to become confident in a range of Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning methods. In addition to this we ensure that they are developing the underlying skills needed to tackle the exam with confidence.

Eleven Plus Courses

Full preparation for the 11+ cannot be achieved in a short period of time. Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning skills need to be developed alongside strengthening a child's general mental arithmetic and vocabulary.

Verbal and Non- Reasoning

Five years' worth of experience by SPARK has developed a comprehensive course that will teach children the methods needed to answer every type of question in Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning tasks in the Eleven Plus exam.

The course is taught in small groups once a week. Our tutors’ approach is both fun and relaxed. Each lesson includes games and activities that help to boost confidence and eliminate anxiety for the exam.
