Sitting the 11+ test just a few weeks after a six week break from school seems unfair, and it’s natural for even the brightest children to fall out of practice during this time. We refer to this as the dreaded ‘summer slide’…when your child has worked hard all year on their 11+ preparation only to have their hard-earned knowledge and skill fade during the summer holidays. 

During the long summer break, you may be left wondering how you can keep your child’s learning on-track whilst giving them the space to enjoy their holidays, a conundrum made even trickier when you also need to find childcare. 

Fortunately, there is a solution to the problem –a holiday course at Flying Start Tuition! Attending our 11+ Revision and Practice course will keep your child switched on and engaged during the break from school, while having fun and making friends at the same time.

11+ Revision and Practice Courses

Ideal for keeping up the momentum over the holidays, our Revision and Practice courses help students consolidate techniques, improve timing and fine-tune exam strategies. These courses are suitable for year 5 pupils who are familiar and confident with all the main question types featured on the Eleven Plus.

Covering the four areas of English, verbal reasoning, mathematics and non-verbal reasoning, pupils will do plenty of practice exercises, brush up on their weaker areas and gain in speed and efficiency when answering questions in timed conditions. These courses are running in our Chesham and Little Chalfont centres throughout the summer holidays.

…and the fun part?

Small groups allow children to socialise and make friends with a new set of peers, giving plenty of opportunity for fun and a good giggle! We know boredom, fatigue and burnout will all damage your child’s chances, so we implement an effective teaching structure with a mix of formal learning and play-based exercises and activities. It’s no secret, children learn most effectively when they are having fun!

Getting a Superhero’s advantage

Throughout the week, your child will be given plenty of opportunities to flex their 11+ muscles as they learn a series of skills that will make up their 11+ Superpowers toolkit!

Students attending Flying Start’s 11+ term time courses will have already been preparing their Superpowers toolkit in their lessons. This course provides them with an ideal opportunity to further embed these game-changing techniques, giving them a superhero’s advantage on the big day.

New to 11+ Superpowers?

If your child has not been attending a term-time 11+ course with Flying Start, we highly recommend they work through our 11+ Superpowers workshops in advance of this course. This can be done in your own time at home through a series of pre-recorded video workshops. This will provide them with more in-depth 11+ Superpowers training that will ensure they fully benefit from the techniques revised on the Revision and Practice course. Luckily our 11+ Superpowers course is currently over 50% off for Chiltern Chatter readers here:
