The 11+ and Entrance Exams are used as part of the admissions process for grammar schools and independent schools. The exam is typically taken by students in Year 6. The purpose of the exam is to assess a student’s academic ability and potential for success in a more academically challenging environment. It generally covers subjects like Mathematics, English, verbal reasoning, and non-verbal reasoning. The specific content and format of the exam can vary depending on the region and the school. Performance in the exam, along with sometmes an interview, determines whether a student is offered a place at the school. These private and grammar schools are known for providing a more academically rigorous curriculum and are often considered prestigious educational institutions.

Preparing for the 11+ exam requires targeted guidance, practice, and a solid foundation in key subjects. At Greenhouse Learning, we understand the significance of the exam in securing placement in selective schools. Our specialised program is designed to equip students with the skills and confidence needed to excel in the exam and gain admission to their desired schools.

How We Achieve This:

Subject Mastery: Our tutors provide comprehensive coverage of the exam subjects, including mathematics, English, verbal reasoning, and nonverbal reasoning, and any other subjects that the school requires. We focus on reinforcing core concepts, teaching effective problem solving strategies, and building confidence in each subject area.

Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning: The verbal and nonverbal reasoning components of the exam often require specific techniques. Our tutors guide students through these topics, providing tips for tackling abstract reasoning questions and enhancing critical thinking skills.

Study Techniques: We teach effective study techniques, note taking methods, and organisational skills to optimise students’ learning. These skills are valuable not only for the exam but also for their future academic pursuits.

Our goal is to empower students with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to excel in the exam and beyond.
