Frequently Asked Questions
Tutoring for excellence and selection. Success matters!
Q1. Why are your fees so affordable?
We have made our fees affordable to ensure that parents can start their 11+ preparation early and not be hindered by the cost. The 11+ exams are so much more competitive now, and many pupils start tuition as early as Year 4. Our low fees, in no way reflect the quality of our tuition. We aim to offer the highest standard of tuition at all times. Testimonials from existing pupils and our successes speak for themselves.
Q2. I was thinking of a instructing a personal tutor, why should I opt for group tuition?
Whilst many parents immediately take on a personal tutor because they know someone who has, this is not always necessary. Children can learn adequately in small groups. Most of your child's learning environment throughout their life will be in groups. We tutor in small groups of 2 - 9 pupils. These small groups motivate the children. They enjoy the competition with others and are encouraged to raise their game. They also learn from one another. We provide one to one tuition, where we find a child struggling in a particular area. At the 11+Brain Training you get the best of both!
Q3. How experienced is The 11+ Company in providing 11+ tuition?
The 11+ Company is a leader in the 11+ field. We organise and run The 11+ Mock Test for Girls & Boys in Sutton, The 11+ Holiday Learning Club and the 11+ Tips and Technique revision sessions. We are 11+ specialists. All tutors have extensive experience preparing students for the 11+ entrance exams. Pupils have gained places at Wilsons, Wallington County Grammar, Sutton Grammar, Wallington High School for Girls and Nonsuch High School. Pupils have also gained entry into selective independent schools such as Sutton High School, Croydon High School to name but a few.
Q4. Do you give any homework?
Yes, all pupils receive homework each week. It is important that homework is done with minimal help from parents. Should you assist your child with any questions, please do indicate on the paper. When doing past papers, we do need to know how long your child spends on each paper. Please provide a timer for your child for this purpose.
