Our Summer Course contains nine lessons and takes place during the summer holidays between a child's year 5 and year 6. In this course we revise the most important topics and we focus on exam technique. More marks are lost from bad technique than lack of knowledge, so it is worth working on.
The Summer Course is open to all - you don't need to have attended our Foundation Course. Many parents who have worked through the syllabus at home, send their children to our summer course to take advantage of our years of experience of the 11+. We've seen all of the mistakes and know most of the short-cuts and have put it all into the course.
We are offering the following classes (all for boys and girls unless otherwise stated):
S1 Exam technique. How to make the most of your time. How to avoid leaving lots of questions blank. Separate sessions for boys and girls who have to face different challenges
S2 Maths - FDP - mostly fractions, decimals and percentages.
S3 Matha - APA - mostly averages, probability and algebra.
S4 Maths - Geometry - area, volume, perimeter, angles, shapes etc.
S5 Maths - Charts and data handling
S6 Maths - Word problems
S8 Verbal for boys or S9 Verbal for girls. This will include more exam technique
S9 Non-verbal for boys. S9 English for girls (spelling, punctuation and grammar)
All lessons will take place at St. Mark's School and last for 85 minutes.
The cost of each lesson is £25. You can use childcare vouchers.
Most of the lessons will include videos that you can watch before and/or after the lesson.
If you show any signs of covid-19, please stay at home. We will be taking all sensible precautions and cleaning between classes.
Classes will be offered through the bookeo system, just like mock exams.
We will email when you can start booking at https://www.salisburyelevenplus.com/book.html.
You should also be able to manage your booking e.g. swap class times at
Bookeo does not two-way sync with our accounting system, so if you pay outside of bookeo, it won't know about it. Bookeo will send you class reminders pointing out that you have not paid, when you may have done.
Initially, we only have access to one classroom at St Marks. Once we have another, we may add a few extra lessons.
Please feel free to let us know if there is something you want that we are not currently offering. We may be able to include it at a later date.
We will also offer some of the classes as zoom sessions. These will cost £20 and last about 75 minutes. We will email you the worksheets and any videos in advance of the lesson.
In September, we will run our regular after school and Saturday classes. We will email details of these at a later date.
