What is it?

What is the 9 Plus Preparation Programme?

Our 9+ Preparation Programme provides knowledge and instruction in all topics and areas including maths, creative writing, comprehension, non verbal reasoning, verbal reasoning, exam practice and interview experience. We prepare for the entrance exams in independent schools in London and the surrounding counties, and have successfully prepared over 800 children to date for schools such as Dulwich College,  Alleyns, King’s College and  many more.

Bear in mind, 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).


How is the Course delivered?

We offer face to face classes in a school.


Students receive 2.5  hour lessons every Saturday, and the sessions are split in half for Maths/Non-verbal Reasoning and 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 9+ syllabus
  • 1 hour of Maths/NVR face to face lesson per week in small groups (maximum 6 per tutor)
  • 1 hour of English/VR face to face lesson per week in small groups (maximum 6 per tutor)
  • Regular feedback on your child’s progress and recommendations from our expert course leader
  • Mock tests every 4-6 weeks
  • Marking service and personalised feedback on completed homework
  • Interview practice and feedback

Who is it for?

Who is the 9 Plus preparation class for?

Currently, the 9 Plus Preparation Programmes is available for students in year 2 to year 4. Children are placed in groups according to their year group and ability.

Our Year 2 and 3 course lays the foundation for students so that they are efficient at key problem solving techniques required for all four subjects (maths, English, verbal reasoning & non-verbal reasoning). Children will also be introduced to technique, timing and mock exam practice. Advanced vocabulary work and creative writing are also taught during the larger group sessions to encourage discussion and to enable children to learn from each other. This enables children to develop their writing skills to a high level within a supportive and fun environment.

Our Year 4 course ties up loose ends for all the necessary topics in the 9+ syllabus. At this level, there is a larger emphasis on practice and proficiency, as well as interview techniques, as this is an essential aspect of the test for those children sitting 9+ exams for private schools. Children are also taught how to gain maximum marks with efficient exam techniques.

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 a pre-exam before the main November/December exam, giving students three months less to prepare. 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.

We have personally helped students gain acceptance into schools such as:

  • St. Paul’s School
  • Notting Hill and Ealing
  • Latymer Upper
  • North London Consortium
  • Dulwich College
  • Westminster
  • Wetherby
  • Queen’s College
  • Whitgift School
  • Trinity School
  • City of London School
  • King’s College School
  • Putney High School
  • Emanuel School
  • Francis Holland
  • Wilson’s School
  • Wallington Grammar School
  • Tiffin School
  • and much more…
