the 11 plus preparation*

Speakers are to be confirmed, but are expected to include tutors
specializing in the 11 Plus exam, teachers, head teachers, examiners and
education industry experts. If you are interested in speaking, please
contact us at [email protected].
Just some of the topics include:
The future of the 11 plus and its possible alternatives
The evidence surrounding ‘tutor-proofing’ and how to address this
Fairness of pupil premium priority at lower scores in “tutor-proof” tests
or tests that examine innate ability
Are catchment areas necessary when parents are willing to move?
What are the advantages of private primary school education in the 11+?

If you are wondering how to get some exposure for your own 11 Plus Tutor business or Tuition Centre Business then please let us know and we will take a look and see if it might be appropriate to include you in our listings. We are trying to create as valuable reference as possible for 11 Plus parents and while we do some checks we don’t charge for inclusion as we want as many 11 plus tutors and tuition centres to list.
