Eleven Plus Tuition

Expert tuition…Excellent results.

At Flying Start, we understand how stressful the Eleven Plus (officially known as the Secondary Transfer test) process can be – both for children and their parents. Our unique, holistic approach to tuition helps minimise stress, optimise success and grow confidence. Since 2009, we have successfully guided thousands of children and families on their Eleven Plus journey and are proud of the awards we’ve won for our innovative approach.

Our Eleven Plus courses have been developed by Sian Goodspeed, founder of Flying Start Tuition, acknowledged expert in the Eleven Plus field and author of many Schofield and Sims Eleven Plus Verbal Reasoning and English books. Lessons are delivered by our experienced tutors, who are all trained the ‘Flying Start’ way, and take place at one of our well-resourced tuition centres.

We offer a range of term time and holiday courses for children from age seven to ten. To find out more, see the options below.

My daughter is the in the middle of an Accelerator English course this week with Sophie.

It has been our first proper encounter with Flying Start and my daughter was quite concerned about attending an additional course at a place that she was unfamiliar with.

I have been amazed at her reaction since attending. She adores Sophie, who has been kind and patient, and has even described it as pretty enjoyable and quite fun.

Thank you for being kind, gentle and supportive to my daughter this week.  Sophie must have a magic touch.
