What is the 1 Day Comprehension Crash Course?

This crash course takes students through the key elements of the comprehension paper to achieve their best in the 11 Plus entrance exams. It looks at the different question types commonly featured in the exams, reinforcing their knowledge and teaching key strategies to closely read the passage and respond in a manner aligning with the standards set by their prospective schools.

The lessons provide essential guidance in what takes up the majority of the 11 Plus English paper. It covers materials from the syllabus used by GL, ISEB, CEM, CSSE and other independent school boards. Over the space of a day (10am -3.30pm), your child will sharpen their skills in retrieval, inference, analysis and working with unseen prose.


How is the 1 Day Comprehension Crash Course structured?

The day begins with an introduction to comprehension, outlining the different question types and formats of the exam (including both written and multiple choice comprehensions). The children will take part in fun drills of skimming and scanning, getting them ready for the five lessons of the day.

Your child will then work through five sessions which cover the main aspects of the 11 plus comprehension paper:

  1. P.E.E and Inferences
  2. Identifying figurative language devices
  3. Conflict, Plot and Structure
  4. Character Analysis
  5. Poetry and Poetic Devices

After the course is completed, you will receive an in-depth report of your child’s performance throughout the day’s sessions. This will highlight any strengths and weaknesses we have identified and provide recommendations for them to further their learning at home. We will also provide you with a mock test paper, suited to the school which you are applying to for your child to complete at home, which we will mark and provide feedback on so you can have a better understanding of your child’s academic standing.

We run several courses throughout the year. Our Easter holidaysMay half term and October half term courses are one week long and are perfect for intensive revision. Each week long course does differ and is focused on a different set of skill sets that will greatly benefit your child in exams and in later life. We recommend your child repeat our 11+ courses at different dates in order to cover everything necessary for the 11+ exams.

Whilst over the Summer holidays, our courses are split by topic to deliver thorough instruction on dedicated topics in Maths (measurementsgeometryalgebranumbersfractions/decimals/percentages,  statistics and word problems), English (creative writing and comprehension) and reasoning (non verbal and verbal).

Jane and Andrew are very responsible and extremely helpful. Their tutoring is very effective and personalized. We sincerely appreciate their help. My son got offers from top London schools including CLS. Highly recommended!


Really grateful to the team. My youngest attended courses for 11 plus prep and then we took up their online tuition to finish up with her and my son doing GCSEs next summer. I wasn’t too keen on online to begin with but it certainly does the trick. We have got places for our top three choices and feel very confident about the pending GCSE results. Very happy, highly recommended.


We are very happy with Jane and Andrew who are both professional and enthusiastic. My DS has passed all paper exams and were invited for interviews by all applied schools including SPB and CLS.


“The team are fantastic at 11 plus London, they are friendly and approachable and are very quick to ascertain the areas of your child’s knowledge base that need boosting. The programme they create is well organised and helped our son improve in all areas. We will be going back to 11 plus London for our son’s brother.”


“Really good support for preparing for exams. They really helped my daughter prepare and boosted her confidence at just the right time.”
