7 Plus


We don’t believe the 7 plus exam should be a daunting prospect for young people. Our experienced tutors will help your child to develop the skills they need in a relaxed, enjoyable way.

What is the 7 plus?

The 7+ is the entrance exam used by preparatory and other independent primary schools ahead of year 3 entrance. The exam tests English and Maths, with more and more schools also starting to include Reasoning papers. The 7+ admissions can also include an interview, where mental arithmetic and memory may be tested.

As competition for senior school places has intensified, more families are applying for 7 plus entry into schools because this can mean an easier transition into the senior school. However, it can still be an incredibly competitive process. Preparation is certainly key.

Get started with 7 plus prep

We recommend starting with an Academic Assessment. Your child will take Maths, English, verbal and non-verbal reasoning papers that mirror the 7+ exam. This assessment provides parents with detailed insights that support parents when they are deciding which school would be best for their child.

From there, we will create a plan with you to build on your child’s strengths and address any gaps. We then work closely with you to understand your child’s needs so we can find the best tutor to suit you. Your tutor will help you and your child deal with any challenges during the admissions process.
