Perhaps your child is incredibly capable and academic. Is this enough alone to pass their 11+?
How much can a tutor affect the outcome of your child’s 11+ results? Is the usual school and homework rigorous enough to prepare for the varying demands of London’s most selective schools?
A naturally academic and bright child may have a good grasp of the English and Maths syllabus. But, to be ready for the 11+ for a competitive London Independent School, your child will need to fulfil several key criteria for success:
All of this takes time.
The intense level of work needed to prepare for the 11+ can be daunting for families. Whilst parents can do much of this preparation work at home, it adds considerable pressure on home life and your relationship with your child. This is where we can help.
We have 40 years’ experience helping children with their 11+ exams. Our institutional knowledge will support you however schools decide to assess for 2022 entrance. For example, we have deep knowledge of ISEB digital exams which helped our families, when many schools changed their entrance exams to this format at the last minute.
Now more than ever, it is too big of a risk to not invest in your child’s 11+ preparation. A Mentor tutor can give insight into the landscape of your child’s knowledge gaps, and work with them over time to address these in engaging, lively sessions.
This year, Mentor tutees passed the 11+ for JAGS, Alleyn’s, Dulwich, Emanuel, Whitgift, KCS, Latymer and more. Our specialist team of 11+ tutors have up to the minute insight into the admissions process at various independent schools. Many are senior teachers and heads of department from some of London’s leading schools. They have personal experience of the demands of the latest 11+ exams, which now emphasise lateral thinking and problem-solving skills.
Every one of our 250+ tutors has teaching experience, is reference-checked and holds an up to date Enhanced DBS Certificate. Wherever possible, we will do our best to match your child with a tutor who has taught at the school they are applying to.
Under the current government guidelines, tutors are legally permitted to teach in-person sessions at your home and so we are currently offering both online and face to face tuition with our experienced 11+ tutors.

“Holistic in their approach, as well as ethical say parents and tutors. So if you’re the kind of parent that believes confidence building is a key part of a child’s journey to academic success, and you’re attracted to highly principled companies, then you’ll be right at home with Mentor Education.”The Good Schools Guide
