If you are looking to send your child to a selective independent school for Year 3, they will be required to sit the 7+, in January of Year 2. The exam will assess literacy and maths skills. We most commonly help children prepare for St Paul’s and Lady Eleanor Holles.
We understand that this will be your child’s first experience of sitting an exam. We make tutoring sessions relaxed, fun, meaningful and as stress free as possible, while of course, covering the essential skills that children will be assessed on. Our aim is for students to be prepared, capable and confident.
Our most common form of preparation support is for the many 11+ exams. We provide 11+ support for state grammar schools, boarding schools and independent day schools.
What is assessed can vary quite dramatically between schools but will include some or all of the following: maths, comprehension, creative writing, non-verbal, verbal, interviews, group tasks and discussions.
Once we understand which schools our clients are targeting, supported by our school choice assessment if need be, we structure sessions around needs and strengths. Our aim at Education Boutique is to be totally transparent in regards to school choices and help clients select the schools in which their child will thrive.
