Firstly, we are honest and passionate about teaching your child. Your child's success is our success! We believe children are to be equipped with the necessary skills, by in-depth topic based teaching and then given an opportunity to practise the skills learned only then are they tested on their knowledge. This approach motivates the child and allows us to hone in on the child's weak areas and work towards eliminating them.
Q1. Why are your fees so affordable?
We have made our fees affordable (at £50 per week) to ensure that parents can start their 11+ preparation early and not be hindered by the cost. The 11+ exams are so much more competitive now, and many pupils start tuition as early as Year 4. Our low fees, in no way reflect the quality of our tuition. We aim to offer the highest standard of tuition at all times. Testimonials from existing pupils and our successes speak for themselves.
Q2. I was thinking of a instructing a personal tutor, why should I opt for group tuition?
Whilst many parents immediately take on a personal 1-2-1 tutor because they know someone who has, this is not always necessary. Children can learn adequately in small groups. Most of your child's learning environment throughout their life will be in groups. We tutor in small groups to a maximum of 12 pupils. These small groups motivate the children. They enjoy the competition with others and are encouraged to raise their game. They also learn from one another. We may be able to provide one to one tuition, where we find a child struggling in a particular area. At the 11+ Pass Masters you get the best of both!
Q3. How experienced is the company in providing 11+ tuition?
11plus Ltd is a leader in the 11+ industry. We organise and run the popular 11+ Mock Tests throughout the UK, the 11+ Holiday Learning Club and the 11+ Masterclasses. We are 11+ specialists. All tutors have extensive experience preparing students for the 11+ entrance exams. Pupils have gained places at Wilsons, Wallington County Grammar, Sutton Grammar, Wallington High School for Girls and Nonsuch High School. Pupils have also gained entry into selective independent schools such as Sutton High School, Croydon High School to name but a few.
Q4. Do you give any homework?
Yes, all pupils receive homework each week. It is important that homework is done with minimal help from parents. Should you assist your child with any questions, please do indicate on the paper. When doing past papers, we do need to know how long your child spends on each paper. Please provide a timer for your child for this purpose.
Q5. Are your tutors DBS checked?
Yes, all tutors hold fully enhanced DBS check clearance certificates.
Q6. Does my child have to attend all 3 hours?
Yes, to get the maximum benefit from our tuition services. We do however stress that our fees are extremely competitive, so your child will receive the maximum benefit by attending all 3 hours where they benefit from tuition in English, Maths and Writing.
Q7. What forms of payment do you take?
We accept credit or debit cards payments which can be made by clicking on the PAYMENT option on the menu above. You may also pay by Internet banking. All classes must be paid for in advance.
Q8. Where are you classes held?
Our classes are held at The 11+ Centre, 272 London Road, Wallington SM6 7DJ.
Q9. What will happen if my child is unable to attend a class?
We know life happens as such all pupils are given 1 week of grace for which the fee need not be paid should a pupil not attend. All other classes must be paid for to retain your child's place each week. In all circumstances, where homework is requested and given a fee of £20 will be charged for that week of absence. It is important that pupils complete all homework even where absent..
