11+ Scholars

For students who want to ace the independent school entrance exams.

Would you love for your child to attend a prestigious independent school?

Do you long for them to get the best possible support and education but lack the time to teach them yourself?

Don’t fret, we’re here to make the independent school application process as easy and straightforward as possible.

In fact, as a participant in our 11+ Scholars programme, your child will receive the best possible support in preparation for the exams.

Furthermore, our goal is to guide your child every step of the way so that they can feel more confident about sitting the exam.

What is the 11+ Scholars programme?

11+ Scholars is our year-long revision course which is specifically for children that are preparing to sit the ISEB, Common Entrance Pre-Test and CEM exams. We have two groups and accept a small number of students into each one so that each child receives a high level of support and attention.

What does the programme include?

  • Three hours of fun and engaging tuition every Saturday with lessons that focus on the exact topics and subjects that your child will be assessed on.

  • Support from The Tutoress team. This includes progress reports, mock tests, mini quizzes and verbal feedback (over the phone or where possible, in person).

  • Exceptional tuition materials and resources. There’s no need to worry about which books to buy or whether one resource is better than another. We provide all of the books, materials and resources your child will need for the entire year.

  • Outstanding English tuition. So many students struggle with comprehension, vocabulary, SPAG and creative writing. As experienced tutors with strong backgrounds in English, we’re committed to providing your child with the best possible English lessons so that they improve their knowledge, score higher marks and thrive.
