11 Plus Tuition in Ilford

Ark 11 Plus Tuition provides comprehensive preparation for 11 Plus exams for Redbridge 11 Plus and Essex 11 Plus Exams. There are three entry stages which children can join; this is at year 3, year 4 or at year 5. The Programme focuses on Maths and English with Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning. Lessons at the Year 3 and Year 4 stages take 2 hours per week, and at Year 5 the lessons continue to be 2 hours per week and later increases to 4 hours per week nearer to the exams. Parents have a choice of increasing the hours at Year 5.

At Ark, 11 Plus tuition follows the national Curriculum and the materials are developed in line with the National Curriculum. In addition to the materials provided by the Programme, children and parents are recommended on what other materials can they use in preparation for the 11 Plus Exams.

Ark Programmes emphasis on class room teaching in small groups and deviate from the culture of just practicing worksheets. We believe in providing education similar to the state school system but to very small cohorts. Our approach enables children to thrive in small groups which directly impact their performance at school. On average a child who attends ARK Tuition improves up to two grades at school.
