Free Independent School 11 Plus Papers

Independent School 11 Plus Exams tend to differ a little from those for Grammar Schools.

Where Independent Schools have Verbal Reasoning or Non-Verbal Reasoning tests then these are very similar and tend to be bought in from GL. See our pages on Verbal Reasoning preparation and Non-Verbal Reasoning preparation for guidance.

Maths and English Papers Information

In the Maths papers, the tests tend to be standard, not multiple choice and equally as schools use the same tests to differentiate bursary and scholarship candidates they tend to throw in a few more difficult questions towards the end. These questions don’t necessarily stray outside the KS2 syllabus but they require a child to think. As all tests are marked manually it pays to show working out as in some cases the schools may pose a question they don’t expect children to solve but will award marks for how they approach it.

In the English papers, the tests tend to include traditional Comprehension and Creative Writing. It is also the case that in most of the comprehension tests answers should be written in sentences rather than being given multiple choice options.
