Beaconsfield School of English specialises in preparation courses for the 11 Plus exam. The Beaconsfield School of English 11 Plus course is designed for students in Year 5 at Primary School. The 11+ course covers the 3 main areas of the 11 Plus - Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning and Numerical Reasoning. The 11 Plus lessons are taught on a One to One basis (private lessons) enabling the 11+ teacher to identify strengths and weaknesses and to focus on weaker areas needing improvement.

The Beaconsfield School of English 11 Plus course starts in September and lasts for 3 terms. There is also an 11 Plus Summer School in August. The 11+ lessons are 75 minutes long, so the pupils can practise and focus on 11+ exercises for an extended period. The teacher always sets homework after the lessons for completion by the following week and this is an important part of the 11 Plus course.
