My son, Reuben, travelled over from Australia to sit the 11+ this September. He was enrolled on your summer course. Reuben said it was a fantastic course and that he found it very helpful. Reuben passed his 11+ and achieved a mark of 133. Just wanted to share this with you and thank your staff for a very helpful study course.
In the Summer 11 Plus Intensive Courses for Year 5, we concentrate on exam techniques and skills gaps, to prepare pupils for the imminent test – and include a mock exam. Our Year 4 courses focus on core skills, with small quizzes to monitor progress. Educational games and activities are an integral part of our courses so that children enjoy their lessons and remain engaged throughout.
Each of our Year 5 Summer 11 Plus Intensive Courses are different, so Year 5 students can attend one, or any number of the courses.

What you can expect for your child on our Summer 11+ Intensive Courses
We develop pupils’ knowledge so they’re equipped to answer a broad range of challenging verbal, mathematical and non-verbal reasoning questions.
Our Summer 11 Plus Intensive Courses 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.
Marie Redmond Tuition® Summer Courses Resources
At the start of the course, your child will receive their summer 11+ intensive course books. From summer 2021 this will include a Marie Redmond’s Superbrain® 11+ Verbal Reasoning Book, in addition to books that are carefully curated each year from a wide range of reputable publishers. If a student has not studied with us before, the books will be presented in a Marie Redmond Tuition® rucksack, featuring an electronic thesaurus, notebook and a pencil case containing pencils, an eraser and sharpener. The cost of resources are covered by our summer course book fees.
‘Marie Redmond’s Superbrain’®
We are excited to introduce our exclusive range of ‘Marie Redmond’s Superbrain’® resources. Using the knowledge gained during her ten years of preparing students for the 11+ and independent school entrance exams, Marie Redmond MEd has written a range of instructional verbal reasoning books. The books will be provided exclusively to Year 5 students attending our intensive holiday courses from 2021, as well as those enrolled on our Year 5 term-time courses starting this September. Our range of books will be expanding over the academic year and ‘Marie Redmond’s Superbrain’® vocabulary cards will be given to all our students from September.
To help reinforce skills taught during the summer 11 Plus intensive course, we’ll provide homework at the end of each lesson – with reviews of each topic in the following session. This gives pupils the opportunity to ask any questions on areas they may have struggled with. As reading comprehension and vocabulary are such important parts of the 11 Plus exams, we recommend that parents encourage their children to read as wide a range of fiction and non-fiction books as possible.
Year 4 and 5 students complete a small number of short, timed tests during every lesson. Mistakes are reviewed afterwards and exam strategies are discussed.
We set a mock exam at the end of each of our Year 5 Summer 11 Plus Intensive Courses, written by Marie Redmond MEd, making sure your child is completely comfortable with exam conditions before it really counts. You will receive the results within 48 hours, along with access to Marie Redmond 11+ Intelligent Video Learning®, providing video feedback for every incorrectly answered question.
To help your child consolidate their memories and continue to absorb new information, we include two 5 minute breaks during each of the summer virtual lessons.
