Mock Exams & Workshops Helping your child shine on exam day

Building confidence


Our courses and mock exams help prepare your child for the demands of 11+ school entrance exams and GCSEs. We aim to encourage your child to develop a healthy work ethic and to boost their ability to solve problems confidently and quickly.

11+: Your child’s 11+ exam success will depend on how well they can think laterally, find solutions to problems and express their ideas fluently. We are up to date with the latest changes to school exams and recognise that Schools are looking for children who can demonstrate an intelligent approach, rather than repeat memorised information. Our course content has been developed exclusively for Mentor education, and sessions will involve practice papers, exam technique and lots of interesting discussions.

GCSE: Our English and Maths booster courses are delivered over the Easter holiday by experienced teachers (often examiners) - with a maximum of 8-10 students per class. A written report will be compiled with revision advice for the final few weeks.

Courses run at Dulwich College.
