11+ Bootcamp

The 11+ is hard and a lot of the content in the 11+ exam will be unfamiliar to the children. We recognise this and want our pupils to do the best that they can.


Most of our pupils are very capable and just get flummoxed by the wording of the questions or the multi-step problem nature of some questions in the 11+.


We are running 11+ bootcamps over the May half-term to help children brush up on their skills. Since the announcement that the 11+ in Torbay is being slimmed down to two CEM tests and a 30 minute writing paper, success comes down to how well you can work at speed in the CEM test. It is a horrible 11+ test, sadly. However, do not fear! As well as tailoring our teaching to suit this new format, we are also offering some extra 11+ booster sessions during the holidays. These are optional and you can book in for as little or as many as you like. Please speak to us, if you need advice on which areas we think your child would benefit most from.

We will be revising everything in the Maths, English and CEM curriculum that could possibly come up in the exam.


Making sure that they are armed with the knowledge to tackle the questions and then revising it all with real 11+ style questions on each topic.


We are offering our cheapest rate of tuition at £20 per 2-hour session, which works out at £10 per hour! These sessions will be taught by our Director and 11+ tutor extraordinaire, Emma.

What is involved?

A bootcamp will be running for English, Maths and CEM skills so you can book your child into whatever sessions they would benefit from the most.


The bootcamps will be run as 2 hour sessions at £20 per child in a small group of 6 children who are all of a similar ability. Children can attend all sessions over the week or just a select few. It is a really effective way of having a crash course of revision a few months before the real thing in September all for £10 per hour!

These 2 hour sessions will run between 10am – 12pm each day and are limited to 6 children per session.
