11+ Mock Exam

The focus of our mock sessions is to put minds at rest and prepare our students for the real entrance exam.

As part of our 11+ preparations with Headway Tutors, we run a series of Mock Exam sessions of which one is at the beginning of October and is run at The Twickenham Exchange. These sessions are designed to give the students some additional help with exam preparation and an opportunity to sit some of the 11+ style exams within exam conditions – albeit considerably smaller than the actual exams themselves. The sessions and exams are organised and chosen by our Directors. All sessions will also include a module on taking exams online – we may ask for you to bring in a device. Please find below the details:

• What working out to show
• Tackling the toughest of questions
• Expert advice on everything from using diagrams and visual aids through to checking whether answers are sensible
• Handling time pressure: students will be given a specified time to answer questions. This will stimulate the time available in a real exam
• Advice on when to stop attempting a question and move on to the next one
Mock exams: Maths and English papers

What happens next?

The papers will be marked and detailed feedback will be provided to parents and the tutor via email. The feedback will clearly highlight the areas to address before the exams later in the term.

Who will deliver the sessions?

The sessions will be carefully planned by the our Headway Tutors Director, Chris, who worked in two different independent schools in South West London. One of our experienced 11+ tutors will run the sessions.


Two day workshop – £150
Sunday only – £100 as this will include the detailed exam feedback

We are very happy with Sarah. Elliot really enjoys their time together and is learning and consolidating a lot. Especially as it is just 1 hr a week. He looks forward to their ‘lessons’. Thank you Sarah

Karl was an amazing tutor. He was tasked with helping me learn close to the whole A Level course in close to under 2 months, with myself having last learnt physics at GCSE two years ago and not reviewing it again since. He had a great approach with ensuring that I was able to learn and cover all the key concepts in a way that made logical sense, and was great at going above and beyond in showing all the elements to help me understand how to derive equations and how they linked together. For someone who really disliked physics, he made learning it very enjoyable with his visible passion and great personality - which definitely improved the whole experience. He was also great at providing additional resources in order for me to be able to recap all that was taught. I was able to perform greatly in the physics section for my medical university entry exam and I can definitely say that Karl's help had a great significance in that. I would definitely recommend him to any students studying physics.
