What is it?

What is the 5 Day 9+ May Half-Term Course?

The 9+ May Half-Term Intensive Course has been designed to identify and fill any gaps in knowledge required in preparation for their 9+ examinations. Spread over 5 days, your child will work on key topics and sticking points in Maths, English and Reasoning (both verbal and non-verbal). By the end of the course, your child will be more fully prepared to take on the entrance exams at their prospective schools, feel more confident in their academic ability and be exposed to a number of different question types that appear in the 9 plus (CEM, GL, ISEB as well as several other independent exam boards).

At 11 Plus London, we understand that each child is different in their learning styles and abilities, so while our courses are structured to cover the most common elements of the exams, we also work closely with students on a more independent level to properly assess their strengths and weaknesses. This allows us to tailor the course to their specific needs and provide us with the opportunity to provide unique insight into your child’s performance. You will receive in-depth feedback on your child’s progress through the course and a tailored plan to ensure they reach their maximum potential.


How is the 9+ May Half-Term Course structured?

The 9+ May Half-Term Course takes place over 5 days, in line with the school holidays. This allows you to make the most of your child’s half-term break, giving them the opportunity to continue their learning in a way that is more suited to those planning to take their 11 plus examinations in the coming year.

The week is split between the three elements of the 9 Plus exams:

Maths: (operations, key topics, shapes, problem solving and statistics)
English: (creative writing, inference, spag, figurative language and exam technique)
Reasoning:(question types and methods for verbal and non-verbal reasoning)

You can book the entire week or book full days focusing on Maths, English or Reasoning. (Parents will receive a full timetable a week before the course start date)

The lessons have been created by 9 Plus experts and taught by an experienced team of specialised tutors who have dedicated years to preparing students for their entrance examinations. Despite being an intensive week of learning, classes are taught in an enthusiastic and engaging manner. This allows your child’s half-term to be fun-filled yet challenging, allowing you to take full advantage of the school holiday. All learning materials and assessments included in the course are provided by us, as well as homework for your child to continue their learning at home.

At the beginning and end of our May Half-Term Course, your child will take mock examinations in timed test conditions for each subject. These will be marked in line with the standards of your prospective schools and a detailed report will be provided with our feedback at the end of the course. Parents often find this the most valuable aspect of our courses as it provides you with exceptional insight into their child’s performance and sticking points, as well as seeing how they progressed over the week’s lessons.

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.”
