Eleven Plus Accelerator Courses

Get 11+ skills up to speed…fast!

Flying Start’s holiday Accelerator courses are intensive introductory courses for year 5 pupils sitting the Eleven Plus tests or independent schools’ entrance exams or for year 6 pupils sitting the Twelve Plus.  Designed to get skills up to speed in a short space of time, they are suitable for students with little or no prior tuition  or for those needing a boost in a particular area. 

Covering the core areas of English, verbal reasoning, mathematics and non-verbal reasoning, our Accelerator courses are organised into subject modules so that you can choose the appropriate ones for your child. Each module comprises four 2.5 hour sessions over four consecutive days and pupils can attend as many modules as desired. 

Students attending Accelerator courses will also learn techniques from neuro-linguistic programming to help them deal with anxiety, aid concentration and enhance performance. These valuable tools will not only help them to do better in exam situations but will also be beneficial  throughout their school career and beyond.
