About Boost Education's 11+ Tuition
Pupils who approach the end of Year 6 schooling must prepare themselves for what is known as the 11+ exams. These exams are a way to qualify learners who are academically suited to attend a grammar school or selective school for Year 7 onwards. The exams are called 11+ because they refer to the age that a child will be in the year that they enter grammar school.
Also known as the “Transfer Test” in certain regions, the 11+ has different iterations across the United Kingdom. In Northern Ireland, for example, candidates take a separate exam known as the Northern Ireland Transfer Test.
Tasks and Learning Approach
Our educators are perfectly equipped to prepare your child for the 11+ exams thanks to years of teaching at schools across the country. We work to ensure students master English, Maths, verbal and non-verbal reasoning and all associated disciplines that encompass this important series of examinations.
We’ve developed a tuition service that’s seen countless students ace the exams and go on to achieve academic results that’s exceeded both learners’ and parents’ expectations. Every lesson is designed to ensure that previous learnings are fully mastered before moving on to new material. We constantly monitor and support students on an individual basis and continuously consult with parents on their children’s progress.

Let Boost help your child master their grades
At Boost Education, our mission is to help every child achieve his or her level best through supportive and holistic education. Our approach is to encourage independent inquiry by children and support them as they explore their world in their unique and individual way. This is why one-on-one time with our tutors is so important.
We ensure that every learner is afforded the opportunity to express themselves and ask questions without fear of ridicule. This philosophy has proven itself year after year and we’re constantly evolving our approach to education to suit the needs of the children who come through our doors.
Here’s What the Parents Have to Say…
Boost Education has undoubtedly helped my daughter to excel at school, and improved my son's results in a very short time period. The teaching quality is excellent and the atmosphere friendly and focussed. I would recommend Boost wholeheartedly as a great value for money education centre.
I would strongly recommend parents to Join Boost. It's very child orientated and learning can be fun. My kids tutor is very friendly, patient and approachable and my kids are very comfortable with her. My younger son says he prefers going to Boost rather than School
I was interested in enrolling my daughter to the maths GCSE programme since I felt she was capable of studying this at an earlier age. The tutors and the additional resources have really helped her. The rewards scheme has also motivated both my kids and I love the structure of the programme where they are assessed every month.
