Having been in development for over a year, we’re delighted to announce that our Complete Guide to 11+ Writing is now available.


Who is this guide for?


The guide has been specifically designed for students taking an 11+ exam that includes a writing component.


This includes almost all 11+ independent school tests as well as many Stage 2 Grammar School assessments. We’ve made sure the guide covers the unusual question types that have been appearing in exams recently.


If you’re not sure if the school/s you are targeting assess writing, just let me know and I will confirm for you.


How will my child benefit from this guide?


Last year, we released 11+ Writing Prompts. Whilst this has proven immensely popular, many of you got in touch to request a product that went beyond sample questions and covered not only techniques to improve 11+ writing skills but also model answers to act as reference points.


Our new guide does exactly this. It covers every single element of the 11+ writing task and is packed with actionable advice, tips and techniques.


It includes multiple writing samples across all eight categories, at different quality levels. These are annotated and analysed in great detail, allowing students to learn exactly what the differences are between high and low quality writing samples, and how and why marks are awarded in the actual exam.


By taking this granular approach, the guide aims to strengthen and reinforce your child’s understanding of exactly what is required of them. Therefore, they will have a solid foundation and the ability to approach their exam with confidence.


Model answers and writing samples are included for all of the below categories:


1) Story writing
2) Finishing with a given ending
3) Continuing a story
4) Recounts
5) Diary entries
6) Newspaper reports
7) Balanced arguments/discursive essays
8) Letters


That’s not all though, the guide contains a lot more than just these annotated writing samples and accompanying exercises.


Other chapters include:


– Reading and Handwriting
– Language and Description
– Sentence and Structure
– Creative Writing
– Spelling


Excellent 11+ writing techniques such as Good COP, Bad COP, SOAP and SHAMPOO are all covered in detail.


Furthermore, the guide is packed full of interesting and practical tasks and exercises to help students improve the quality of their writing.


There’s a whole lot more included too, but we don’t want to keep you too long ?.


Suffice to say, we believe this to be the most comprehensive and useful guide to 11+ Writing available today.


What’s included in the guide?


You can view the contents and introduction here. The guide contains 590 beautifully designed and illustrated pages.


As with all our products, it’s available for immediate download and use after purchase.
