We’ve launched an app called Times Tables VR. It’s a super fun game that helps children learn their times tables in an immersive Virtual Reality world that they can navigate through using just their eyes.
We have now finalised the dates for our 7+, 8+ and 11+ Mock Exams for 2016. This article will highlight the benefits of our mocks and how they will help your child. Click here to reserve your child’s place now.
The 8+ is a traditional entry point for boys and is offered by a small selection of prep schools. The intake tends to be less than or equal to that at 7+. One notable exception to this rule is Sussex House, which only offers entry at 8+. Even if it not a conventional entry point for a specific school, children can sometimes gain entry at 8+ if an occasional place arises. For a selective school, your child will most likely be asked to sit age-appropriate 8+ papers in english and maths (and sometimes verbal and non verbal reasoning too). For those schools with 8+ as a standard entry point, all four disciplines will usually be tested.
This article covers information from this year’s 8+ exams and relates, among others, to the the following schools:
This year King’s Wimbledon has changed things around a bit. In previous years, interviews for 7+ and 8+ entry would take place prior to Christmas and then the exams would be held the following January (in the year of entry). Most schools, with the exception of City of London School for Girls, tend to hold their written exams in January.
We are pleased to announce that we will be holding our 7+ and 8+ Easter Revision Courses on Thursday 9th and Friday 10th April at the Millbank Academy, Pimlico. (Erasmus Street, SW1P 4HR)
These courses are designed for those taking 7+ and 8+ exams in the following academic year (most likely Jan 2016).
