Personalised tutoring that gets results

Milestone can provide the experienced tutorial support and intensive practice in years 4-5 to greatly improve your child's chance of a pass. We are equipped with the latest materials, and our intensive 11+ boosters and mock tests will hone your child's skills in the run-up to the exam, preventing them from getting rusty during the long holiday period.
The two exam papers that make up the 11+ test are in early September, directly after the summer break and only a few days after the beginning of the new school term.
The GL exam
In 2018 GL Assessment took over as the Bucks 11+ provider, replacing the previous CEM-system. The two separate papers - 'Verbal Skills' and 'Mathematical & Non Verbal Skills' - each last for about an hour, and each happen on the same day.
'Verbal Skills' covers English comprehension, verbal reasoning (VR), grammar & punctuation, whilst 'Mathematical & Non Verbal' covers maths-based, multi-step problem-solving, and non-verbal reasoning (pattern recognition, both 2D and 3D). Each subject area is demanding in its own right, and all of them require regular practice and teaching support to maximise the chance of success.

Exam nerves can be cruel, so pre-familiarising your child with the situation will help him / her take things in their stride on the day. Working in association with Chuckra - the leading name in 11+ test resources - Milestone runs a series of 11+ mock exams each summer during July & August. This helps children be at ease in the exam room and gives them first-hand practice of time-management.
If you would like to know more about 11+ mocks and Sunday-booster sessions we run during the summer months, just call or email us and we will be delighted to explain all the details. [N.B. - Milestone parents receive a 5% discount from Chuckra]
