Babington House School 11+ Preparation

Nursery & Prep

Co-ed aged 3 - 11



11+ Preparation

The 11+ examination is very significant.  It is something we have achieved remarkable success in with our Year 6 leavers to date with a high pass rate to local academically selective grammar schools.

To ensure pupils are prepared for 11+ entry to independent and maintained secondary schools and our Year 6 pupils to sit the Babington House School Entrance Examination for Year 7 entry, their timetables include:

- 11+ topics timetabled on the curriculum from Year 3 - 6

  • Verbal Reasoning
  • Non Verbal Reasoning
  • Spatial Reasoning
  • Mathematic problem solving (timed)
  • Long writing pieces (timed)
  • Literacy comprehension questions (timed)
  • Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation

- Targeted mathematics groups

- Preparation for interviews and scholarship examinations.

Parents are guided through the secondary transfer process, through meetings and information evenings.

We at Babington, empower the boys and girls to succeed.  This not only, or course, in terms of academic achievement but also with high standards of conduct.  We develop kind children who are polite and able to communicate.
