11+ Resources

With our extensive expertise and years of experience guiding children through the 11 plus process, we have crafted a variety of highly effective 11+ books, resources and exam papers.

We strongly believe that well written resources, representative of the actual 11+ exam are vital to giving students the best possible preparation and ultimately the greatest chance of success.

Here’s what some parents and tutors have said about our books:

”…the Tops workbooks for home learning were both high quality and engaging.”
“…the books and resources provided were brilliant.” 
“…our students love your vocabulary book.”
“…your books continue to be a firm favourite with both the children and parents.”

We’ve also created an extensive range of GL practice tests and mock papers that accurately mirror the real 11+ exam.

Our GL test papers are written by 11+ experts and are trialled on past students preparing for the 11+ test, to ensure they are the right level. Updated yearly, they are ideal practice material for children in the months leading up to the exam.

Here’s what some parents and tutors have said about our test papers:

”…extremely well-written test papers”
“…the mini mocks were invaluable practice for my daughter during the summer holidays” 
“…these papers are simply the best.”
“…quality resources that really helped my son”

The Rose Family

We just wanted to let you know that Nathan has passed his 11+! 
Once again we are so grateful to you and your team for all that you did to help him. We would very happily recommend Tops Tuition to others (in fact we already had before the results came out). As soon as I had my first telephone conversation with you I felt it was the right place for him to come. I’m not sure whether we told you that he had taken a test for another tutor who had refused him on the basis that his English was ‘weak’ but this has obviously improved over the last year. Your building/classroom has a very welcoming atmosphere, the classes were fun, homework relatively painless, and the biscuit break was a great idea. We also liked the way you spread out your holiday courses over the summer rather than the intensive week that many other tutors do.
