Scholarship Course

Our week long 11+ Scholarship Course is recommended for students aiming towards an academic scholarship at a London Independent school for Year 7 Entrance. The course takes place during the summer holidays prior to the start of Year 6 and the October Half Term in Year 6 to help students prepare for the Independent School 11+ exams in January 2014. The course is taught by our expert 11+ teacher and will cover English, Maths, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning and includes a Mock Test on the last day.

The course will provide an opportunity for top applicants to learn in a rigorous and challenging environment and further develop their skills and understanding. The course can be taken in addition to the regular 11+ Revision Course, or as an alternative to it.

The Course will include

  • Pre – course written assessment which is sent out to pupils to complete before the course takes place. This is given to the teacher to mark, and each course will be tailored to the students, as a group and as individuals.
  • Mock Test on the last day. This will test the topics taught during the course, and will be conducted under exam conditions, giving the students invaluable exam practise.
  • Reports and Feedback. The teacher will give summarise what was covered during the course, and will also give individual written feedback to students, with suggestions for further revision and improvements.
  • Books, worksheets and practice papers. These will be supplied by the teacher, and are unique to Greater London Courses.
