Is the 11plus right for my child?
Preparing for the 11plus entrance exam is a unique journey, with each child progressing at different speeds with individual goals. However, before starting out, it is important to manage expectations regarding whether or not the 11plus route is right for your child.
They are keen to learn – The grammar school environment is very fast paced and focuses on academic aspiration. Therefore, a child that is enthusiastic about learning and improving will see the 11+ process as a series of new challenges that they are willing to take on. Enthusiasm is perhaps one of the most important 11plus traits and a mindset that thrives on challenge is essential for this process.
They are coping well at school – As the 11plus is designed to measure a child’s potential at a level that is usually one (or more) academic years above their own, it is important that your child is coping well at school before starting your 11+ journey. Recommendations off teachers, consistent grades and a familiarisation with working to a certain pace can be a great indication that your child is ready for the 11+.
They enjoy extra-curricular activities – Many selective schools encourage children to take on extra-curricular activities – for example, a school may have their own specialism with a wide range of sporting, musical, language or crafts on offer. If this sounds like something your child will enjoy, then this may be another indication that the 11plus route is right for them.
If you are unsure about whether your child could succeed in the 11 plus, it's a great idea to get an assessment from Educare11plus. For example, we offer 11 plus mock exams throughout the year to reflect each region, ensuring we give you the most reliable and accurate feedback possible, which can be used to gauge a child's ability and identify any particular strengths and weaknesses in their knowledge.
From the outset, it is important to view the 11+ as a process of real value which will ultimately improve core skills in Maths and English, whilst providing great stead for secondary education.
You will find that entering the process with the overarching outlook of time well-invested, that you will immediately feel less pressure and thus your child will too.
