A tailored tutoring programme for 11 Plus exam success

We design our 11+ learning programmes to arm your child with all the knowledge required to pass their 11+ examination. If your child is going to be taking an 11+ exam, it’s very important that you contact us in advance, allowing them time to prepare and giving them the best chance of success.

We support your child by:

  1.  Carrying out an initial assessment. This is in a ‘non-test’ environment and allows us to see where our support will be most beneficial.
  2. Tailoring a programme to your child. We develop personal objectives ahead of their 11+ exam so your child has an end goal in sight.
  3. Holding weekly tutoring sessions. Your child will attend a 70-minute weekly sessions with a tutor who will help them prepare for their entry exams.

Why is 11+ tutoring beneficial?

Even the most academically gifted students can lack confidence, especially in a large class environment at school where there might be more than 30 other children. Tutoring is a way for your child to prepare for their exams and our approach is to create a supportive, encouraging environment where they will be able to thrive.

11+ exam tutoring will help your child by:

  • Building their confidence
  • Helping them achieve their goals
  • Giving them the skills needed to tackle the 11+ with confidence
  • Setting them up for exam success
  • Supporting them in reaching their full potential

Who are our 11+ exam tutors?

Our 11+ exam tutors are all fully qualified teachers with a wealth of experience in their subject areas. We have combined experience of 100+ years.

11+ contents will vary, however the exam will generally cover:

  • English
  • Maths
  • Verbal reasoning
  • Non-verbal reasoning/spatial awareness

Our tutors can coach your child in all areas of the 11+ exam and ensure they are well versed in what to expect ahead of the real thing.

As well as having qualified teacher status, our 11+ tutors are passionate about creating the optimum learning environment. We want to give our pupils confidence in their abilities and bring out the best in them, so they can go on to achieve their potential and get into the school of their choice.

English Tuition FAQs

What is your pass rate for 11+ Exams?

Leeds Tuition Centre are proud to have an exceptional success rate for 11+ Grammar Entry exams. To learn more about this, contact us today.

When is the best time to start 11+ Tutoring?

The worst thing you can do is start preparing your child for their 11 Plus Entrance Exams too late, especially because 11+ exams consist of 4 different subject papers. Most children will begin their tutoring in September or January of Year 4, though because the amounts of tuition required may be somewhat higher, tutoring may need to start a little earlier than Year 4. Especially if you feel your child hasn’t been reaching their academic potential.

How difficult is the 11 Plus Exam?

The 11+ is one of the most difficult tests that a Year 5 or 6 child can face, as many tests are conducted in the September of Year 6. Without proper support and a planned approach, it makes it extremely difficult for your child to pass.


My daughter, Olivia, had been receiving extra tuition for Maths & English for approximately 12 months at a previous establishment and, although initially it seemed to be working, increasingly I felt that Olivia wasn’t really reaching her full potential for several reasons.

I began searching for an alternative with little success – certain aspects of other organisations just did not appeal.

Coincidentally, at around the same time a friend of mine described the very positive and successful experience her son had encountered at Leeds Tuition Centre.

That week I contacted Joanna and was immediately impressed by her friendly and welcoming approach. Her system for delivering the tutoring sessions were exactly what Olivia needed – one to one sessions, consistency and an environment conducive to learning – with a qualified teacher! She seem to fully understand how Olivia could be encouraged to be the best that she could be, gain confidence and flourish in her learning. The sessions are great value for money too!

It’s only been 3 months since Olivia started her maths lessons at Leeds Tuition Centre and the first progress assessment from Joanna has shown that she has made excellent improvement in her maths skills. I’ve asked Olivia about the things she loves about Leeds Tuition Centre and this is what she said;

“I have one tutor all the time rather that lots of different ones like last time and Joanna is fun and kind”
“There aren’t loads of kids cramped in one space”
“You’re not just sat in front of a computer all the time”
“I don’t know how Joanna does it mum but the work I do at Leeds Tuition Centre is the same as I do at school so it’s really helping me a lot”
Olivia is enthusiastic about and looks forward to her tuition each week – I never have to remind her to do the homework Joanna sets her. I’m really impressed with the progress Olivia has made, more importantly Olivia is very proud of herself – her confidence has definitely grown and her love of Maths is a joy to see.

Thank you so much Joanna
A very proud mum
