Eleven Plus

Would you like to give your child the best chance of Eleven Plus success?

At Flying Start Tuition, we run a range of popular term-time and holiday courses designed to help every pupil realise their potential. Recently adapted for the Buckinghamshire Secondary Transfer Test (11+) as written by GL Assessment, our Year Five Eleven Plus courses provide pupils with comprehensive coverage of all the areas featured in the tests, ensuring they feel confident and fully prepared to face the big day.

In addition to preparing pupils for the Eleven Plus, our courses will raise their attainment at school and teach them valuable skills they can use in the future - whichever secondary school they move on to.

Flying Start Eleven Plus courses cover the required numeracy, literacy and reasoning skills, along with revision and exam techniques, in order to fully equip pupils for these all-important tests. Using our unique blend of traditional teaching methods, technology and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (to help children sustain their concentration and deal with stress) our courses are designed to be dynamic and fun, boosting confidence and accelerating progress.

Maths topics covered include mental and written arithmetic, fractions, decimals, percentages, time, money, algebra and problem solving. Literacy areas covered include reading comprehension, cloze procedure, spellings and vocabulary building. Non-verbal and verbal reasoning question types are also taught.

Flying Start lessons are taught by experienced tutors and supported by trained assistants, so you can be sure your child will receive all the individual attention they need.


Included in the course fees are an extensive range of worksheets, workbooks, help sheets, vocabulary lists and test papers plus a free course folder. In addition to this, all pupils on one of our Year Five Eleven Plus courses receives automatic subscription to our online Learning Platform which contains a wealth of Eleven Plus resources to support your child's learning both during lessons and at home.

For children wanting to start preparation earlier, our Primary Foundation courses for children in years 3 and 4 are ideal for laying strong foundations and enable plenty of time for improving on any weaker areas. Our Get Ready for the Eleven Plus will ensure their skills are at a high level before advancing to our Year 5 Eleven Plus course.
