  • 5 star review  My daughters have enjoyed their experiences at Smart 11 plus, in particular they have commented on the excellent teaching styles they have received. All the tutors are friendly and really go out their way to ensure learners receive the best learning experience. My eldest daughter has secured a place at her chosen grammar school and we are grateful for the excellent encouragement and preparation she received for the 11 plus examination. Her confidence as well as exam technique improved immensely, she has developed skills which will help her in her future studies. We can wholeheartedly recommend Smart 11 plus tuition, the tutors are well experienced and the resources provided are superb!

    5 star review  A big Thank-you for all the staff at the Smart 11+ Solihull ,for their compassionate approach which helped my son to attend the 11+ exams with confidence . It was really challenging time for both kids and adults due to the Covid situation . But all the tutors have taken huge efforts to support the kids with online teaching and face to face classes.My son enjoyed the sessions and the tutors were very inspiring and supportive . With all the final preparations from them, my son has got into one of the King Edwards school. I strongly recommend them . Emily I can’t forget to say that you were the one who guided me to achieve this . A huge Thankyou 🙏🏽😊

    5 star review  My son attended Smart 11+ Tuition in Solihull during the revision period in preparation for the grammar test. The 2 places where they held the sessions were conducive to students learning. The tutors (staff) were very patient and supportive, especially because my son has special needs and they have been brilliant with him ( and to the other students of course!) facilitating his learning. They taught him how to build his confidence with their way of teaching as well as motivated their students by keeping lessons fun, both ways on line and face to face teaching. I can say that they contributed much in building my son’s knowledge and his confidence through subjects that he’s struggling with and strengthened his potentials in areas that he’s good at. My son has been offered a place to one of the King Edwards grammar school in Birmingham. A huge thank you for the Smart 11+ Team. I highly recommend them.

    5 star review  Excellent team, my daughters both loved attending weekly, and over the summer for an intensive week to practice timings and practice tests before the 11+ exam, really built their confidence and helped with focused study time every week. Highly recommend, all tutors were amazing, everything was so well run. Also during lockdown the virtual sessions were great. Postcards sent during the year with words of encouragement, and such positive attitude before the test day, gave my daughters more confidence in themselves and their learning.

  • 5 star review  Smart 11 plus tuition has not only been valuable for my son's preparation for the 11+ exam but also during lockdown. When classrooms were closed, the team got the online classes up and running within a timely manner, more so then most schools. My son has enjoyed his time and has learnt more here then in school. The tutors are extremely professional. They are very approachable should you need to see them after class and respond to emails promptly. We did have a little moment when my son had doubts about the 11+ exam. When I mentioned this to Emily, she kindly has a word with him along with one of the other tutors, and really gave him back his confidence in his abilities. I would definitely recommend Smart 11 plus tuition. My son enjoyed his time there, gained knowledge and confidence. The tutors are lovely and always happy to help. The children always look happy when they come out of class which is always a good sign. In a final note, I would just like to say a big Thank You to the tutor's for all their hard work in preparing the children for this year's exam.

    5 star review  I would recommend Sam and his team to all. They supported our daughter throughout the whole 11 plus process to success. Sam was available at all times for any questions and his tutors genuinely cared for our daughter and instilled confidence and exam technique.

    5 star review  We were very happy with Smart 11+ tuitions for our son 2 years ago. He managed to pass his exam to the chosen school. The whole team of Smart 11+ does amazing job. In our case if would be special thank you to Jon and his work on english with our son. We are part of Smart 11+ time second time round with our daughter. This time round we have signed her up for 2 a week online, so a bit different. We are very impressed with the organisation and the teaching approach. The whole thing just works seamlessly. We have already recommended it to a couple of friends. Added bonus, the kids actually enjoy it.

  • 5 star review  Sam and the team have been working with our son for circa a year. Sam has a very consultative and friendly approach, and always provides a pragmatic view and solutions. Our son enjoys his time at the centre and online. Furthermore the resources offered are fantastic in terms of the on-line bofa system, the homework set, bedrock vocabulary, and also suggested reading lists. The tutors are very very supportive and helpful. We would encourage anyone considering 11+ tuition to take a tour of one of the centres with Emily. We would be happy to share our experience with anyone or provide feedback if anyone would like to have a chat. Furthermore please find below a view from our son Sufiyaan...... When I joined smart 11 plus, the staff were really helpful and kind. I enjoy the learning there because they help you when you don’t understand and they continue until you understand the work. I enjoy it there so much I asked my dad to sign me up for another 4 months.

    5 star review  A fantastic centre with superb tutors. Initially we went for confidence building with Math however this ended in my daughter wanting to take the 11+ exam...she passed but more importantly she is no longer anxious and will now face new challenges head on!!
