All our Buckingham 11 Plus classes are limited in size which means that your child will have valuable one-to-one attention with their fully qualified teacher. Discover the proven benefits of small class sizes.


Your child is assessed twice during each team – at half term and at the end of term. This means that we can check they’ve achieved their individual targets and devise a Tuition Plan that suits their needs and challenges. We’ll share all assessment results and Tuition Plans with you and you’re more than welcome to discuss them with us.

I just wanted to inform you of the good news that Ali has passed his 11+ with marks of 138. I thank you and your colleagues so much for your effort in helping Ali achieve his dream.
Year 5 parent, Waddesdon (2016)
DJ did very well in the 11+ surprising us all with the score he got (175). He enjoyed his week with you and got on well with everyone there. There were some good exam techniques that he took from it which I am sure helped in the 11+.
