Welcome to KSOL Altrincham! Located within the Altrincham Grammar School for Boys leisure centre, this tuition class offers a vibrant and educational environment for all of our students. Since the launch in 2016, we have helped children gain places at Altrincham Grammar School for Boys and Stretford Grammar School!
Course currently unavailable - please see our Year 5 online programme.
Our team of experienced tutors provide focused 11 plus tuition in an interactive and engaging learning environment. Each week, we introduce new topics required for the 11 plus entrance exam in verbal, non verbal reasoning and Mathematics. Our 1:5 tutor to pupil ratio enables us to spend time improving specific areas of weakness in small, focused groups.
This is a fantastic centre to work at with my students. The educational environment really helps to inspire and encourage all of the children.
As with the Sale centre, my main aim is to encourage and motivate every single child. I personalise each and every online programme to provide children with the right knowledge and skills to succeed in the 11 plus and beyond!
Your child will receive 2 hours of tuition per week at our Altrincham Centre. During the session, our tutors will cover weak points highlighted through the online tests and teach a new topic from our 11 plus curriculum.
From Monday - Friday, your child will receive online tests in Maths, English, Verbal and NVR. These tests will be personalised around any weaker areas identified by your child's allocated 11 plus tutor.
Once a month, your child's tutor will email a progress report including feedback, tips and a visual chart of how your child is progressing. If you wish to discuss progress at any other time, chat to your tutor at the centre or give them a call during office hours.
With KSOL, you will have a whole team to support you and your child - give yourself the peace of mind that there will always be a tutor available to help you through the entire 11 plus process.

We used KSOL for 11+ preparation in Altrincham. It was very good to see the progress and keep my daughter motivated. She looked forward to doing the online test daily. There is plenty of explanation for the wrong answers. Most important use for this format is ability to work against time.

Sale Grammar School, Stretford Grammar School, Urmston Grammar School and Altrincham Grammar School for Girls are part of the Trafford Grammar Schools CEM Consortium Entrance Test (TGSCC) meaning that if you wish to apply to any of these schools, your child can sit just one exam. The CEM (Centre for Evaluation & Monitoring at Durham University) is a widely used independent exam provider of 11 plus exams and includes multiple choice question papers testing verbal, non verbal and mathematical skills.
Altrincham Grammar School for Boys and Loreto Grammar School both use GL assessment which also uses multiple choice format exams in verbal reasoning, non verbal reasoning and mathematics. Loreto also include a closed test in English, and Altrincham host their own Creative Writing paper. St Ambrose College conduct their own internal exam in verbal reasoning, arithmetic and English.
Our team of experienced 11 plus tutors provide children with a foundation curriculum and resilience learning - skills that will give all children the ability to tackle any kind of exam. We believe in giving children the tools to approach any challenge that may come their way.
