11+ Familiarisation Classes

Following the classes offered here at Bishop Wordsworth’s School over the last seven academic years and the very positive feedback received from parents, we will be offering further 11+ Familiarisation courses in the forthcoming academic year.

All classes are open to boys and girls in Year 5 as at September 2020 and will aim to strengthen their study skills in Maths and English and also to give them the opportunity to gain some basic familiarity with the format of the respective 11+ questions.

The courses will run for 6 weeks, with the first course beginning on 9 October, the second 29 January, the third 6 May, all taking place on a Wednesday between 4.00 - 5.30 pm. Children will be in small classes and they will be taught by subject specialists. Please select one course only.

The classes are open to boys and girls whether they intend to take the 11+ or not. Our aim is to offer an alternative, cheaper and better quality option to the private tutors that are available elsewhere, with the added bonus that children will work on generic study skills that should benefit their Key Stage 2 core subjects too.

There will be a non-refundable charge for enrolment of £10 and the charge for each session is £15, the total cost of the course will be £100.00; but there will be either subsidised or free places for children whose parents are either in receipt of state benefits or who are in reduced circumstances.
