Our 11+ Tuition includes:

Professional tuition in the AQE and GL Assessment Transfer Tests (11+)


At On-Target Tuition,  we provide bespoke 11+ tuition, tailored to the needs of your child.  We assess each child and design a programme of work specifically aimed at filling in the gaps in their knowledge with regards to the test curriculum.  We make sure that your child covers all required topics and if they are struggling to grasp any area we can repeat and re-teach until their understanding is solid.  This method, combined with the use of past paper extracts to reinforce learning and practise exam technique ensures your child is fully prepared for the test. 

We recommend that you seek our help in your child's P6 year. However if during their P5 year you feel there are a few gaps that need addressed then now is the time to make sure your child is fully prepared for the start of P6 and ready to take on the 11 plus curriculum.  Our tutors like to build a relationship with your child to build their confidence and to make sure that we have time to cover the wide Transfer Test curriculum.

Who will be tutoring your child?


Our Centre Director, Martin, leads a team of experienced Transfer Test tutors who have an in-depth knowledge of the topics and how to get the best out of your child in the run up to the test.  They are all fully qualified teachers who have been tutoring children for this exam for many years. 

Martin has been teaching for 16 years and has experience teaching upper primary with eight years of experience tutoring children sitting the AQE/GL transfer tests since their introduction in 2009. Having recently gone through the experience with his own daughter he knows the stresses and strains felt by parents and children going through the process. This experience and knowledge of test curriculum and how to get the best out of the variety of students we see each year makes On Target Tuition an ideal choice when it comes to helping you and your child through this often stressful transition and test.

Our lessons


The first step in the process of enrolling your child for 11+ tuition with On Target Tuition is an assessment from which we can pinpoint any areas of weakness and tailor a programme of study designed to bring your child up to the level required for the test.  Other tutors may offer all ability group tuition. What makes us different is that you child receives tuition targeted, specifically at their needs.  Your child will benefit from our excellent teaching experience and will receive the right amount of teaching time, balanced with an environment which fosters the independence needed to succeed in this test. We find that this way of tutoring works brilliantly for the students that come to us.  They are in a calm, comfortable environment, surrounded by other learners who are focused on their own work.  
Our lessons are 80 minutes long, which allows us to work on both English and Maths as well as past paper extracts.  Homework is offered to reinforce learning.  Your teacher will also provide feedback at the end of each lesson and talk you through any areas your child should practice at home and what their next steps will be.

Our tuition involves extensive past paper practice in both the AQE and GL Assessment papers, which is vital to improve exam technique.

Testimonials


'My daughter Grace is the third in the family to attend Martin and Clare’s tuition classes. After a summer of no work at all, Grace’s scores in school in September were in the 50s and 60s (percentages) which was worrying to say the least. So I signed her up to On Target Tuition weekly and Grace worked her socks off! The result was that she achieved 107 in the AQE in November, a great score which should mean she will get into the Grammar school of her choice next September! Her youngest sister, Felicity has also just started today.’

"Lara achieved a mark of 112!  She is delighted and we wanted to thank you so much for all the help she received.  Your calm and measured approach was just right for Lara and her progress particularly in maths was remarkable.  We are hopeful that she may obtain a place at Wallace."
