11 Plus Courses in Year 5
Welcome to the Beaconsfield School of Education website. Here you can find information about our One to One 11 Plus Courses. We provide courses for pupils in Year 5 living in or near Beaconsfield.
One to One Courses
Beaconsfield School of Education specialises in 11 Plus courses for the GL Assessment® 11 Plus examination. The courses are designed specifically for Year 5 pupils and are taught One to One (private tuition). We continually develop our 11 Plus courses to reflect the latest developments in the 11 Plus exam. For example, when a new type of question appears in the Bucks 11 Plus, it is incorporated into the School's 11 Plus Course. The lessons are taught in the pupil's home by a highly experienced tutor. In the 11 Plus exam, children have to answer questions in five subject areas and on a wide range of topics. The five subject areas are English, Maths, Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning and Spatial Reasoning. There is a substantial amount of learning involved in our 11 Plus course. For this reason, a One to One format is ideal in helping to ensure that all of the required topics are covered.
Pupils can start their course any week during term time, subject to availability. The Register page has up-to-date information about current availability.
