GL 11+ Test Information

"Our daughter did the 11+ tuition programme with Becky, starting in Y4. She lacked confidence to start with, but Becky’s kind and patient approach really helped to bring her out of her shell. She enjoyed the weekly lessons and it was great to see how much she blossomed as time went on. She walked into the final exam feeling relaxed and well-prepared. She is not only delighted with her score, she has also gained a tremendous amount of confidence, learning and familiarity with exam techniques that will stand her in great stead in Y6 and beyond."

Y4 Availability from Sep 2024Y5 Availability from Sep 2024

Please note that our 11+ mock exams are only available as an integral part of our Y5 Tuition programme ie. they can no longer be booked individually.

 “I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all that has been offered over the past 12 months. The recommendations and guidance provided by Cathryn after assessments in terms of areas of focus and additional resources was invaluable. A prime example being NVR went from our daughter’s weakest area to her strongest. Testament to the clear and concise content you provided online allowing her to look at what the class was going to be the evening prior so she didn’t go into lessons blind. This allowed Gabriella to have advance knowledge and understanding of subjects so was able to keep pace during face-to-face lessons which Cathryn expertly executed. We are really pleased with all you offered and the communication.”

The Warwickshire 11+ Test

The GL 11+ is comprised of two test papers.

Each paper takes around 60 minutes to administer as instructions are given and examples are explained between each section. Instructions for the test are played from a CD.

Sue Chapman Tuition offers 11+Mock Exams in Warwickshire to help prepare your child for this test.

Becky is a wonderful teacher – knowledgeable, kind and enthusiastic, and we feel she already really knows our daughter. The work gives our daughter just the right level of enjoyment and challenge, complementing her everyday school work, and we’re very glad we signed up – highly recommended.

What’s In The GL 11+ Test?

English and Verbal Reasoning

English includes reading comprehension, sentence completion passages and proofreading for spelling and punctuation errors. Reading comprehension tests a child’s ability to make inferences, understand vocabulary and extract accurate interpretations of the text. Sentence completion tests are passages which contain missing words.  Proofreading means carefully checking for errors in a text.

The verbal reasoning section involves the manipulation of vocabulary, codes, sequences and logic techniques and the solving of verbally presented problems.  A rich vocabulary is essential alongside an understanding of specific techniques.


11+ Maths covers a wide variety of maths topics which are generally taught in Key Stage 2.  It includes a mixture of longer maths, shorter maths and data processing questions.  These will assess your child’s ability in mental arithmetic as well as problem solving within a multiple-choice question format.

Non-Verbal Reasoning

Non-Verbal Reasoning assesses intelligence through the manipulation of shapes using rotation, reflection, symmetry, shape, positions number, size, and shading.  It is meant to eliminate cultural bias in testing and possible bias against any child who may have difficulty with verbal elements.
