The Entrance Exams preparation workshop is ideal for those children who are preparing to sit the entrance exams to grammar and independent schools which take place in year 6. The workshop offers extra support in Maths and English, verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning. We focus on exam technique, hints and tips on answering questions and practice papers for 11+ exams and the independent schools. The teacher works on any problematic areas while also showing how exam questions are presented. Children tend to find difficulty applying their knowledge to scenario’s and real-life problems and in understanding what a question is asking them to do. We help them tackle this during the week.
Ultimately, the workshop allows the children to grow in confidence when answering the papers. Exam technique is taught by going through the exam papers, showing them how to tackle the question and allowing the children time and practice to answer them.
The group size is capped at 6 so the children feel they are getting close attention. Having a small group also allows the teacher to plan the sessions specifically for those attending and for the schools to which they are applying. The one consistent piece of feedback we get from the children following the workshop is ‘why can’t this be my school every day?
Workshops take place during school holidays and weekends.
