Frequently Asked Questions

Should my child sit the 11 plus?

 

By sitting the 11+, your child could gain access to one of the three Grammar Schools in Torbay that are rated outstanding by OFSTED and are in the top 5% of schools in the UK.

Why do children need 11+ tutoring?

 

Children need tuition whether that be from a professional and experience tutor or from a parent at home. Tuition is vital as the 11+ is extremely challenging and will test concepts that they will not have been taught yet in school.

 

At Riviera Tuition, we do not teach to the test – we actually teach an understanding of the concepts in order to achieve a long-term understanding and application. I do not believe that anyone can be trained to answer the questions parrot fashion – as a secure knowledge and understanding is essential.  Not only will this method of teaching enable pupils to stand a very good chance of passing their 11+, but it also means that your child will be able to keep up with the pace at Grammar school.

How will I know if my child is able to sit the 11+?

 

In order to stand a good chance of passing the 11+, your child should be on course to achieve Level 5 in Literacy and Maths at the end of KS2.

 

We offer FREE 30 minute assessment lessons to all new pupils, that will aim to assess your child and give you honest feedback on whether they would be capable of sitting the 11+. Please contact us via our enquiry form, should you which to book your free assessment lesson.

Should my child have 1-2-1 tuition or group tuition for the 11+?

 

We always like to assess our students before paid tuition starts. If a child is struggling below the average achievement for their age, we would always recommend 1-2-1 to ensure they get the help they need. When a child is achieving average or above average for their age group, then we would allow them to join a group. Our 11+ groups are filled with children who of the same capabilities as your child to make sure that no-one is left behind!
