11+ Programme

Kew College Prep has a singular agenda to do the best by each pupil – from all angles. It is about providing a secure environment for the children to grow as individuals by unlocking their own potential to the full.

The school’s successful 11+ programme ensures that each child is provided with a tailored learning programme. Housed in a separate building (Upton), the Year 5 and Year 6 children have specialist Maths, English and Reasoning courses, as well as TAs, to help them with their preparation for 11+ and life at senior school.

As part of Kew College Prep’s unique 11+ syllabus, children in Year 5 gain additional Year 6 teachers in February, giving them an almost full calendar year with these teachers to help guide them towards the senior school entrance exams. Children in Year 6 also profit from extended school days in the autumn term for bespoke learning, exam prep and interview practice. No stone is left unturned.

The school’s extensive planning is complemented by the efforts of an experienced team, including teachers and the Head, relieving any stress and pressure in the senior school decision process. Parents meet staff to discuss suitable future schools within a knowledgeable and supportive framework. Children are free to focus on their learning and personal development in a positive, encouraging environment.
