What subjects are part of the 11+ exams?

The subjects included in 11+ exams vary depending on the specific test and region, but typically they include English, Maths, Science, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning

When do 11+ exams take place?

11+ exams typically take place in the autumn term, around September or October, prior to the academic year in which the student will start secondary school. However, exact dates may vary depending on the specific school or region.

Why are 11+ exams important?

11+ exams are important if you as a parent wish to send your child to a grammar school. The examinations determine which students will be placed in selective schools, which are generally considered to have higher academic standards and better resources than non-selective schools. This, however, is a very personal decision for a parent and everyone situation will be different.

“I have two boys that attend Learning Cubs and I have noticed such an improvement in their Maths and English. Staff are very friendly and keep me informed on my children's progress.”
