11 Plus tuition - English, Maths and Verbal Reasoning

We provide comprehensive preparation for the 11 Plus English, maths and verbal reasoning papers, covering all examining boards and regions, including GL/NFER, Moray House, CEM, CSSE and ISEB.


Our tutorials prepare candidates for entry into Grammar and Independent Schools, emphasising tailored presentation, targeted practice and personalised explanation, using a bank of proprietary questions and papers to enhance speed and accuracy and to build confidence and enthusiasm.


We provide an informal assessment for each tutee at the outset. This provides focus and clarity for the preparation process, allowing us to target accurately where each tutee needs particular support.


Working through the relevant specifications, our tutorials are also interactive and fun, developing creatively our tutees’ knowledge, time management skills and ability to respond effectively to the variety of 11 Plus exam formats.


We tutor in the comfort of your home, online (via Skype, Zoom, Teams or FaceTime), or at the home of one of our specialist 11 Plus tutors, at a time that is most convenient for you. 


We currently tutor in person within a 10 mile radius of Bournemouth town centre, including Christchurch, Parkstone, Poole, Southbourne, Westbourne, Boscombe, Moordown, Winton, Charminster, Ferndown, Wimborne, and Branksome.

'blt's success rate with 11 Plus tutees is very impressive. Candidates are invariably very well prepared and they feel confident going into their examinations. Many tutees comment on how much they enjoyed and learnt in their 11 Plus tutorials which is testament to an outstanding preparatory service.' (David Walker, Head of Spanish, Kingswood School)


'Edward's 11 Plus tutor was instrumental in securing his place at King Edwards. He found verbal reasoning a particular challenge, but with plenty of focussed practice and sympathetic explanation it soon became a strength. He went into his 11 Plus feeling very confident. We feel indebted to blt. Thanks again!' (Sally Doran)


'Excellent preparation for the 11 Plus papers. Very thorough, always enthusiastic, fun and engaging. Sarah made huge progress and she enjoyed doing so. She went into her exams knowing what to expect and how to deal with it. She got her place at Bournemouth School for Girls and we were over the moon. We couldn't recommend blt more highly.' (Amy Jones)
