11 plus English

Education through Motivation and Inspiration

English 11 Plus exams and independent school admission exams come in a variety of forms. We offer several English Programmes to address these varied tests and provide the best assistance to pupils in building their confidence through understanding of the exam environment and question types. As part of our Programmes, we can cover the following elements:


Comprehension training involves giving students short texts (500-750 words), varying between classic works, modern texts and factual writing, e.g. press articles. Pupils will then answer questions that test their literal and interpretive comprehension skill and knowledge of literary techniques and devices (such as similes or metaphors).


Pupils will answer the questions about the meaning of words included in the short texts provided. Pupils will also be asked to provide synonyms and antonyms for the given words, fill in the gaps in a sample text and complete other exercises that test their knowledge of English vocabulary.


Questions in this section vary and may take different forms, such as identification of spelling and punctuation errors in a sample text or filling in the gaps in sample words.

Writing Composition and Creative Writing

Practice in this section involves the key elements of essay writing tasks at 11 Plus exams – planning, structure and comprehensive writing.
