How can parents help their child be better prepared for the 11+ exam?

Are you a parent of a Year 3, Year 4, or Year 5 child who is considering taking the 11+ exam - maybe for Grammar or Year 7 Independent School Entry. We hear daily from parents that there isn't enough information on what the exams are, how they are structured, or what THEY can do to help their child be better prepared to take them.

Hosted by Gillian and Jim Dixon, the founders of Teachers To Your Home, this webinar recording will explain everything you need to know about what the 11+ is, how it is structured, and what you can do to help your child be better prepared for it. Gillian and Jim bring a lifetime of teaching experience, plus their knowledge of finding the best 11+ tutors to this session - so is a must-watch for any parent/carer whose child is considering the 11+.

What you will learn from our 11+ exam webinar recordings:

In the first webinar, we cover the 11+ exam in general. This is a great introduction to what the exam is, how it is structured, etc. And is a great resource to parents who want to get up to speed. The video covers:

  • What is the 11+ exam and why do you take it?
  • What are the differences between the different exam boards?
  • How the exams are structured - timings, questions, themes, etc.
  • When 11+ exams take place and when you should start preparing
  • Tips for how to prepare for the 11+
  • Tips for helping your child do their best in the 11+ exam
  • Our recommended resources for preparing for the 11+ exam

Our follow-up webinars are run by a selection of our 11+ teachers and each one covers a different part of a standard 11+ exam paper. Watching each video is a great way to hear more about how to tackle each part of the 11+ and hear our teachers run through some example questions and answers.

While the first webinar is for you, the parents, the follow-up webinars are for the whole family! Your child will hear directly from our experienced teachers about what to expect in each section of the 11+, we'll show them example questions and how to answer them effectively.
