11+ Common Entrance Tuition


11+ Common Entrance is taken by students entering independent and selective grammar schools at Year 7. This is a very competitive exam and as a result the number of applicants greatly outnumbers the number of places available.

While some schools will follow the ISEB syllabus, others set their own exams. Students sit tests in maths, English, verbal and non-verbal reasoning. Schools will often invite the applicants for an interview before making a final decision.

Many students have additional tuition to increase their chances of success. Therefore extra help in maths, English, reasoning and interview technique – or a combination of these – can make a huge difference to a student’s readiness to sit the test. Tuition is particularly effective when taken steadily over a number of months to avoid a last-minute panic.

OC Tuition has a number of specialist 11+ tutors who have helped many students in the same situation. Tutors gauge what needs to be covered to ensure students reach their maximum potential and perform as well as they can. Hence the first few lessons serve as an assessment from which the tutor tailors subsequent lessons to your child’s needs.

Consequently we have helped students prepare for the 11+ to the majority of London’s top schools. These include: Alleyn’s School, City of London School, City of London School for Girls, Colet Court, Dulwich College, Emanuel School, Francis Holland School, Godolphin and Latymer School, Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School, Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls, Henrietta Barnett, Highgate School, Ibstock Place School, James Alleyn’s Girls’ School, King’s College School, The Lady Eleanor Holles School, The Latymer School, Latymer Upper School, North London Collegiate School, Putney High School, Queen’s Gate School, St Paul’s Girls’ School, The Tiffin Girls’ School, Tiffin School and University College School.
