Year 4 Get Ready for the Eleven Plus

Be ahead of the game

At Flying Start, we have over a decade’s experience of preparing children for these all-important tests. In that time, we have helped hundreds of students to gain a place at a secondary school of their choice. 

Our Get Ready for the Eleven Plus programme has been developed by Sian Goodspeed, Flying Start’s founder, experienced teacher, Eleven Plus expert and author of many Schofield and Sims Eleven Plus books.  

With competition for grammar and independent school places growing increasingly fierce and Eleven Plus tests now covering even more question types than ever before, it makes sense to start your child’s preparation as early as possible. An earlier start reduces pressure and allows more time to cover the curriculum, develop exam strategies and build confidence – all key ingredients for Eleven Plus success.

Course Content

Accelerated progress 

Covering the four main Eleven Plus subject areas of maths, English, verbal and non-verbal reasoning, our courses are tailored to the exam provider for your  region – whether that is GL Assessment, Durham CEM or another provider. 

As well laying strong foundations for the Eleven Plus, our Get Ready course will extend core maths and English skills, helping your child to progress more rapidly at school.

We know that children learn best when they feel happy, confident and at ease.  Our tuition centres provide positive, nurturing learning environments in which teaching takes place in small groups allowing children to progress at their own rate.  

In addition to curriculum content, we teach our students neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) techniques to help them learn smarter and dealing with stresses such as exam nerves – tools they will have for life.

Please pass on my warmest thanks to Gil for yesterday’s session.(My daughter) now seems to be quite relaxed about proceedings and primed
with confidence.  She has loved the time spent with Gil and I consider it a reflection on Gil’s teaching that she was always extremely happy to be taught by her and would always comment on how quickly the time passed.
