What are Masterclasses?
11plus Masterclasses provide a focused learning environment for pupils on a specific area of the 11+ syllabus. Often pupils find some areas more challenging than others. Our masterclasses go a long way towards helping the child master the topic in question. The teacher looks in-depth at the topic and explains key techniques required for 11+ success. A wide range of 11+ style questions are practised and tips given on answering these questions quickly and accurately.
What areas do you specialise in?
We focus strongly on the four subjects often tested in the 11+ entrance examinations namely Mathematics, English, Verbal Reasoning and Non Verbal Reasoning.
Who are your tutors?
Our courses are led by qualified teachers and tutoring professionals vastly experienced in preparing pupils for the 11+ entrance examinations. They have all successfully tutored pupils who have gained admission to both grammar and independent schools.
Where do the courses take place?
Courses are held at one of two loactions. Laleham Lea Prep School, 29 Peaks Hill in Purley CR8 3JJ or 11plus Brain Training Centre, 272 London Road, Wallington SM6 7DJ.
We also host Masterclasses in other venues in London and beyond.
What is the maximum/minimum number of participants in a group?
Groups vary in size up to a maximum of ten pupils in each masterclass.
What time commitment is required?
Courses run for three hours during our intensive morning sessions to one-day six hour courses. Please refer to the masterclass details for the duration of the advertised course.
What skills or experience are required?
Most courses are accessible to all primary or secondary pupils. In instances where prior knowledge is required, pre-requisites are explicitly stated. However, enrolment operates on a first-come, first-served basis.
What can I expect to come away with after a Masterclasses course?
Courses usually consist of tutor-led explanations, sessions with practice exercises, and feedback. Pupils will be equipped with a greater understanding of the masterclass topic and will be given the chance to apply their knowledge to typical 11+ style questions. Support will be given to ensure every pupil accurately answers the questions presented.
