What is the 7 Plus Preparation Programme?

Competition for Year 7 places at good secondary schools is becoming more and more competitive, so it may be a good option to get in early by applying for a prep school. This may give your child a greater chance of admission for the main school when the time comes around.

As with 11-Plus preparation, we aim to get children started as early as possible, to give them the greatest chance of passing. For this reason, admission to these courses start from Year 1, with preparation following a structured program designed to develop and increase the skill-sets and experience needed for such assessments.

Our aim is to provide knowledge and instruction in all topics and areas, as well as regular exam practice and interview experience. Bear in mind however, many children will not be able to achieve the high results required for admission (depending on how soon preparation begins, the natural abilities of the child, and the increasing levels of competition) and so we carry out ongoing assessment in order to let you know as soon as possible how likely it is for your child to pass and under which circumstances success will be most likely. We operate a strict policy whereby we only continue tuition for children who are suitable in terms of ability, potential and personality. We provide feedback on these issues and will be in a position to comment on this after 4-8 weeks of instruction (depending on the level and age of child). We prepare for entrance examinations at most schools in London and the surrounding counties, so please specify your choices when completing the online registration form.

Each week we teach different topics from the 7 Plus test, according to our structured program and the 7 Plus syllabus. Students are instructed in techniques to show them how to answer questions in the correct way, giving them the means to handle any new type of problem as they progress. Sample 7 Plus questions are used for practice and to check learning, with weekly homework based on what has been covered in class. Parents can monitor progress easily and will know in advance the topics being taught each week.


How is the course delivered?

Students receive 2 lessons every Saturday lasting a total of 2.5 hours. Each lesson focuses on Maths/Non-verbal Reasoning or English/Verbal Reasoning. Lessons are in small groups of 6 per tutor. Managing tutors are very competent and possess over 10 years of entrance exam experience. All classwork, homework, mock exams, assessments, online practice questions/assessments are included.

As a summary, students receive:

    • Homework following the 7+ syllabus
    • 1.25 hours of Maths face-to-face lesson per week in small groups (maximum 6 per tutor)
    • 1.25 hours of English face-to-face lesson per week in small groups (maximum 6 per tutor)

Who is it for?

Who is the 7 Plus preparation class for?

Currently, the 7 Plus Preparation Programmes is available online for students in year 1 to year 2. Children are placed in groups according to their year group and ability.

Our Year 1 course lays the foundation for all four subjects (maths, english, verbal reasoning and non verbal reasoning). Children will also be introduced to technique, timing and mock exam practice.

In Year 2, children will focus on perfecting their knowledge for the upcoming 7+ exams. Children are taught how to gain maximum marks with efficient exam techniques. Practice papers, group interviews and exam questions centred around numeracy, literacy and reasoning will also be elaborated in these vital months before the 7+ entrance exams.

We have classes running all year. Children are welcome to join us at any time of the year as our classes are designed to cover the entire syllabus, irrespective of the start term. Ideally however, children should be enrolled as early as possible in order to get the maximum benefit from the classes. This is important because many schools now require students to complete the exam in November/December instead of January. An early start ensures that your child will get adequate practice before these exams, removing the panic of last minute preparations and cramming. Despite this, we have also seen significant improvement with children who attend just a week/few weeks before the exam. There are also the intensive courses available to those who find this option most suitable.
