  • review rating 5  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.

    review rating 5  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.

  • review rating 5  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.

    review rating 5  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.

    review rating 5  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.

  • review rating 5  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!!

    review rating 5  We sent our son to Sam and the team for 18 months, I can honestly say he never moaned once about going and positively thrived during his time there. He loved the small groups and the learning style, within a short time he was exceeding all the requirements at school and last year scored very highly on his 11 plus exam meaning he had his pick of schools. Our son chose to continue attending smart 11+ after the exam because he enjoyed the learning and relationships smart 11+ brought. As a family we are sad that our time with the team has come to an end. I recommend Smart 11+ to everyone I meet, it’s a fantastic service provided by an amazing team.

  • review rating 5  My son had the pleasure of being tutored by Sam and his team, they were fantastic and so supportive of my son. My son was made to feel so confident, he made progress in leaps and boundaries. I had previously tried different centres but the progress my son made at Smart 11plus was amazing. Thank you so much Sam!!

    review rating 5  I have been using Smart 11 plus for the last couple of years. The team are fantastic. My child loved the tutors and looked forward to attending the weekly sessions. The tutors are brilliant and really know how to engage and get the best out of the children. They are a great company and I recommend them to anyone looking to advance their child’s development.
