The 7 or 8 Plus exams are used for entry into Lower Prep School at years 3 or 4 respectively and are an important milestone in a child’s academic life. Each independent school will have a slightly different test so we are able to tailor the tuition around the schools you have selected for entry and we can provide experienced advice on the schools best suited for your child. The test will usually consist of maths, English, verbal reasoning and an informal interview. The 8 Plus is similar to the 7 Plus, but a higher level of sophistication in maths and English is expected at the latter age. The tests are usually carried out in the Spring term ready for September entry. However, a few schools test as early as November.
Our approach with the early years is to make the tuition fun and engaging so your child is excited and inquisitive when it comes to learning. Whilst having fun your child will be learning the test material and will be exposed to the style of questions that will appear in the exam. This will ensure that your son or daughter is completely comfortable on the day of the test with no reason to panic.
