Effective 11+ Preparation for Children

Hatch End 11+ Tuition is an established and successful tutoring centre. We offer a warm and friendly environment where children are encouraged and motivated to achieve their maximum potential whatever their ability.

Our aim is to build children’s confidence and help them achieve high standards of work in an engaging and challenging environment.


11+ Tuition

We provide courses to fully prepare children for the 11+ and Independent School Examinations for Year 4, and Year 5 students. We have successfully prepared hundreds of children to enter schools of their choice.

The lessons are carefully constructed to fully meet the requirements for the exams. We cover Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning, Maths, Mental Arithmetic, Creative Writing, Grammar and Comprehension. The small class sizes mean the students’ progress is closely monitored and an open dialogue between teacher, parent and pupil gives each student the best chance for achieving their potential.

Our impressive track record reflects Chris Holliday’s 25 years of teaching and tuition experience.

"I have been so pleased with Hatch End 11+. Both my children were accepted at their first choice senior school and the lessons really helped them with their school work. They were given the tools to handle exam situations and making sure they completed their tuition and school homework taught them to effectively manage their time. This really helped my son when he started senior school. I would recommend Chris and her team to anyone thinking of applying to any grammar or independent school. Thank you to you all. Karen B"
