Eleven Plus

11+ preparation is a particular strength at Empowering Education, with our students achieving pass-rates more than two-and-a-half times in the Bedfordshire area.


All of our tutors are qualified teachers, who have been or are currently working in school.  All tutors and staff are enhanced DBS checked.

Our tutors combine expertise with a supportive, friendly and encouraging style which children of all ages really respond to.

11+ Preparation Assessment

During the assessment we will cover both English and Maths as above but also add in an element of Verbal Reasoning (and Non-verbal Reasoning if required). We will ask whether your child has already been exposed to these types of questions/papers and ask them to complete some question types on their own. We will be looking for their ability to understand the question and then attempt the answer in a reasonable time. We may also briefly discuss strategies for answering different types of questions.

Individual Plan and Balance of Study ?

At the end of the assessment, we will report to you the outcome of the assessment. We will then agree on the topics to be included in your child’s individual plan, and agree on the balance between English and Maths.

Lessons ?

Lessons are 1 hour in length. Majority of our pupils come in once a week, and are matched with a tutor who will work with them on the same day, at the same time each week for continuous progress to achieve their goals.
