Our team of experienced tutors provide focused 11 plus tuition in an engaging learning environment. Each week, we introduce new topics required for the 11 plus entrance exam in English, Maths, Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning. Our 1:5 tutor to pupil ratio enables us to spend time improving specific areas of weakness in small, focused groups.
My team of tutors are inspiring and encourage all of the children to achieve their very best, which is why our Harborne centre is extremely popular with both parents and children.
Over the past few years, we have assisted children in their 11 plus preparation and successfully helped them gain places at local grammar schools in Birmingham.
Your child will receive 2 hours of tuition per week at our Harborne 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.

The online material and its targets and time limits helped my son to be disciplined, persistent and improve his skills in all 4 areas (English, maths, verbal and non-verbal). Mock exams are even better. He shed his fear of facing exams, grew more confident with every mock exam.
