This is a specialist market that has developed based on primarily the eagerness of parents to obtain a free education at a leading Grammar School at any cost.
The obsession to secure a place at any cost has seen, doctors, lawyers and affluent business owners literally “throw” £5,000 to an 11 plus tutor or tuition centre in an attempt to guarantee their child will pass. With minimal domestic support and an attitude of complacency such children often get destroyed in the process. Their love of learning diminishes and although they see through completing the goal of passing the 11 plus but then at secondary school and beyond they don’t fulfil their potential because they were burnt out at the age of 10 trying to fulfil their parent’s obsessions of passing at any cost.
The proliferation of 11+ tuition services has also brought about a culture of "if you do not pass your 11+ then you are a failure, a nobody, a misfit" and this has unfortunately destroyed the soul, spark and the flame of many a child when it comes to the love of learning.
NOTHING can be further from the truth! GCSE’s and A Levels are the results that every employer looks at and this is when every child should be peaking. The 11+ is simply a bonus if a child passes it without burning themselves out. This is the key – NEVER allow a child to extinguish their learning spark in a quest to pass the 11+. If they are on track and pass, great and if they do not NEVER put them down or let the feel like they are a failure they are not – educate them that GCSE and A levels are what really matter in life. Passing the 11+ merely provides an opportunity to get a place at a school that produces excellent iGCSE/GCSE and A-level grades.
With over 75 % children passing from any educational background we have by popular demand set up a structured 11+ program for those children and parents who wish to seriously attempt the 11+ examination and we hope to attain over a 95% pass rate in such classes. You can only really get a 100% pass rate if you only take thecream of pupils. We never intend to do that.
Our newly designed 11+ programs are specifically tailored towards passing the 11+ examination with the knowledge that they help towards a better overall education to help prepare for GCSEs and A Levels and this is the ultimate goal. If a place is not secured then they may lose out on some structured specialist tuition for GCSE and A Levels at a top school but it is not the end of the world. In fact it is an opportunity to work hard and excel and possibly obtain a place at a Grammar School with an excellent education with proven results for iGCSE/GSCE and A Levels.
Each child must understand that the world is their oyster and by becoming an independent learner who understands their own learning style they will be well on the way to succeed in life. Ultimately, this is what education is all about and the 11+ is an opportunity to get quality education for free but competition for places is what makes it difficult. All that anyone can ask is for parents, tutors and the child to have made their best possible attempt at that age with no regrets and never lose site of the fact that GCSEs and A Levels are the real examinations everyone is judged by in life.
Our Specialist 11+ preparation will ensure that your child has the best preparation for the 11+ and we will guarantee that qualified teachers deliver the course with proven results and most importantly with the well-being of your child at heart.
We strongly discourage tuition services who use non-qualified teachers and embrace a culture of if you fail the 11+ then you are a misfit and a failure. Your child is your most precious asset, so leave them in an environment of qualified teachers who understand the learning style and emotional well-being of your child.
