Numerous studies have shown that children perform better in small groups (of 8 to 10 students) than any other situation. This is extremely beneficial as a child is more receptive in a communal environment where they can bounce ideas and exude creativity.

Both individually and in large classrooms, the passivity of some students who rarely initiate an idea, ask a question, or show interest in participating is apparent. Yet, in the canteen and on the school playground, these same children (in small clusters) exchange ideas, consider alternatives and probable consequences and solve problems.

Thus, the small group approach is effective in providing an enjoyable learning experience for students. (Both “enjoyable” and “learning” are important here. There is good reason to expect that students can participate in a classroom experience that is enjoyable and results in learning).

The students learn from each other, become supportive of one another as well as endure healthy competition, of vying for the teachers praise, racing to answer the question first or being eager to get the top mark in the test that week. Students report that it is fun to sit down and talk to other students about a topic.

11Plus West Midlands captivate the essence of this learning environment with fun, interactive and highly productive lessons. Sessions are held on Sunday’s for 1½ hours as follows:

Mock Exams

Mock exams are an invaluable tool in preparing a student for exam conditions and discipline. Children are exposed to a multitude of facets like time management and developing their ability to stay calm even if faced with unfamiliar question.

The standard and content of these Mocks is all-inclusive and covers the entire skill set tested in the actual 11+ exam. When students from the last 5 years were surveyed, the majority of respondents believed that the mock examinations helped in their success and with their preparation for the 11+ exam.

Each Mock exam will be marked and the results presented in a report, which will provide the child’s mark, percentage and ranking for each discipline as well as an overall data and rank.
Our Mock Exams take place on the following dates to cover the consortium exams of Shropshire, Walsall and Wolverhampton right up until the Birmingham 11+ exam.

May Half-Term Booster and Summer Crash Courses

These comprehensive booster and crash courses constitute a mixture of timed exam practice, identifying weak areas (and improving on them) and increasing the range of skills in Maths, English, VR, NVR and Comprehension. As the exam approaches, it is more important than ever to iron out your child’s gaps in knowledge and carelessness. Detailed explanations of corrections are undertaken of any question that a student wishes to ask or gets wrong. They are also an invaluable tool in preparing a child for exam conditions and discipline. Please email info@11pluswm.co.uk for details.
