London, United Kingdom (26th June 2012) – Fleet Tutors, a leading provider of private tuition, has commented on the annual rise they have seen in the demand for 11+ tuition.
The 11+ exams are taken by some students in their last year of primary education, and although they were once used throughout the UK, they are now only used in certain counties and boroughs of England.
Children can take 11+ courses at Fleet Tutors’ London or Farnborough office and then maintain learning through weekly home tutoring sessions. It is recommended that children take the courses through the summer to avoid adding to the demands of the regular school year. 85% of all students tutored by Fleet Tutors achieve their first choice secondary school.
Fleet Tutors have noticed a year-on-year increase in the amount of students taking the 11+ exams through their services and have attributed this to parents’ desire for their children to go to a better secondary school.
A spokesperson for Fleet Tutors said: “The fact that demand for tuition at 11+ has continued to grow every year at Fleet Tutors for the last nine years, regardless of the economic downturn, reflects parents’ lack of confidence in comprehensive schools and the continued popularity of selective education whether in free grammar schools or independent schools. Our 11+ courses are designed to be fun as well as to improve performance. The nine and ten year olds that took the last course rated it very highly on our feedback forms.”
