11+ Preparation Centre in Romford

Our 11+ preparation is based on researched teaching methods developed in Singapore who are ranked amongst the highest in international testing.

The 11+ Singapore method aims to develop a child’s mathematics reasoning ability needed for the 11+ as well as a deep understanding of the subject. We offer small and friendly group tuition for 11+ students.


Our Teaching Method

We believe that a child can succeed in the 11+ with the right kind of teaching and support.

Our teaching method is based on the high performing Asian nation of Singapore.

The Singapore method aims to develop a secure understanding in maths:

  • Pupils learn to develop reasoning skills with classroom tested material.
  • Learn the highly effective strategy of solving worded problems as taught in the Far East.
  • Develop fluency for the 11+ IQ tests of non-verbal and spatial reasoning.

How does the 11+ Singapore method differ from others?

The 11+ Singapore method is a highly effective approach in preparing for the 11+ maths which looks at the most engaging methods when challenging topics. Our unique facilities and resources in the centre allows a child to solve 11+ problems effectively using diagrammatic methods.

Small Friendly Groups

Our classes take place in small groups and offer 11+ preparation for Year 3, 4 and 5 students. There are up to four students per tutor giving your child the individual focussed attention they need. All tutors are assessed and are DBS (disclosure bar service) cleared.

iEducate Centre will prepare your child to sit the Maths, Non-verbal & Spatial Reasoning, Verbal Reasoning and English 11+ tests for GL Assessment (Kent, Buckinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Wirral etc.), CEM (Birmingham, Gloucestershire, Warwickshire, Slough, Trafford, Bexley etc.), ISEB (Brentwood, New Hall, Bancrofts etc.), CSSE (Westcliff, Southend, King Edward’s and Colchester) and more.

Preparation consists of the following:

This consists of developing a child’s deep understanding using methods developed in Singapore. The classroom tested material we provide is highly successful in enabling children to cover all the topics in depth and to secure their understanding.

Work focuses mainly on the development of spelling, punctuation, grammar and vocabulary. This helps children improve their creative writing needed for the Essex CSSE exam. English is often an area of weakness for many children and for this reason we have increased the emphasis on this to ensure that a child builds a firm foundation.

Non-Verbal and Spatial Reasoning
Non-Verbal and Spatial Reasoning techniques are taught using our Peter Francis Non-Verbal and Spatial Reasoning tutorials, magnetic cube net and other classroom tested resources.

Verbal Activity
Verbal Activity skills are developed using material needed for the GL assessment and CEM exams.

Regular Test Scores
iEducate Centre’s tests are used on a regular basis as a means of measuring a child’s progress.

Mock Examinations
These give children a chance to try the GL Assessment, CEM and CSSE exam style practice papers under examination conditions.

Online Learning

iEducate online is a unique online platform where students can access our Peter Francis Non-Verbal and Spatial Reasoning video tutorials and practice questions.

Our state-of-the-art online experience will help them master exam techniques, hone in on their accuracy and develop speed.
