Power Up for the Eleven Plus

The best chance of 11+ success

At Flying Start we have over ten years’ experience in supporting children and their parents through the Eleven Plus exam. Over the past decade, hundreds of students have taken our courses and successfully gained entry at a secondary school of their choice.  

Our Power Up 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 Verbal Reasoning and English books. 

Weekly lessons are planned by our team of qualified teachers – all of whom have extensive teaching and Eleven Plus experience. Lessons are delivered by our friendly, experienced tutors at one of our well-equipped tuition centres.  All our tutors are trained the Flying Start way, which includes training in techniques from neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) to help our students learn smarter.

Course Content

We’ve got it covered

Tailored to the GL Assessment tests, our Power Up for the Eleven Plus course covers the four main areas of English, maths, verbal and non-verbal reasoning,  preparing students for the wide range of question types found in the tests.

At Flying Start, we know that children flourish and learn best when happy, engaged and confident within a positive, nurturing environment. In addition to curriculum content and exam strategies, we provide the tools to help deal with anxiety, improve concentration and enhance performance. These techniques are valuable and highly effective additions to a child’s skillset and beneficial way beyond the Eleven Plus point.

Our award-winning approach gives students the confidence to adapt and apply their knowledge efficiently, no matter what format or question types they encounter.

Getting a Superhero’s advantage

I am very pleased to say that my daughter passed the 11+. Many thanks to you and the team for all your support and encouragement. She learnt so much from doing the course – in addition to preparing her for the exam, it greatly helped her confidence and self esteem.
