Year 5 11+ Tuition

11+ Tuition in Halifax With Study Write 11+

The Study Write 11+ Year 5 tuition programme is designed to prepare Year 5 children for the 11 plus entrance exam to the grammar schools in Calderdale and its surrounding areas.

The course runs from the September when your child enters Year 5 and is completed the week of the entrance exam, within the first 5 weeks of being in Year 6.  Small class sizes, less than 12, ensure a focused and personalised approach is adopted.

The entrance exam is comprised of 4 components which are tested over 2 papers:

  • English and Verbal Reasoning
  • Maths and Non Verbal Reasoning

Study Write 11+ teaches these 4 components over the 12 month period and thoroughly prepares your child for the 11+ exam by building upon their current school knowledge in English and Mathematics and teaches them the Verbal Reasoning skills and now the newly added Non-Verbal Reasoning curriculum, at a high, challenging level.

In addition to strengthening children’s academic skills, the Study Write 11+ sessions teaches time management, organisation skills and how to excel under exam conditions.

Using past papers, continually throughout the sessions, the children are taught how to answer the exam questions successfully.

Study Write 11+ encourages children to develop a positive work ethic and desire to succeed.

The children grow in confidence, knowledge and ability over the course of the programme.

Outstanding teachers delivering sessions in a caring and nurturing environment with regular feedback to parents and children create the right environment from which to learn.

As a result they feel prepared for the next step in their school journey.

Please get in contact for further details or join our waiting list whilst in Year 4 or below.

Study Write now also offers KS3 & GCSE in core subjects due to the high demand of its success rates.  See the home menu for details.
