UK School Entrance Exams & How to Prepare Effectively!

May 31st 2020

Applying to a UK school is often a lengthy and complicated process.

At William Clarence, we are home to a specialist team of dedicated education consultants who can provide top-level advice and support on every aspect of UK school applications within the independent sector, including how to prepare for the 11+ entrance exam.

In this Excellence in Education podcast, we speak with Beatrix Woodhead, a specialist entrance exam advisor, tutor and consultant, on how students aspiring for a place at a UK grammar or independent school can effectively prepare for their application and 11+ entrance exam.

Beatrix has published multiple textbooks on the subject, as well as working closely with families from around the world to help their children excel in their UK school applications and win places in the country’s most competitive and prestigious boarding and day schools.

By listening to this podcast, you’ll discover:

  • what the 11+ exam is, and which schools use it
  • when the exams take place throughout the year
  • how children can best prepare for the exam
  • the most important elements of the 11+
  • what to expect in the interview element of the exam
  • how parents can help their children to prepare
  • important things to remember on the day
  • … and more
