Key Features of the Sir Tailor 11+ Course
This information is provided in order to give you a flavour of our approach and an idea of the scope of our work and does not form part of the Terms and Conditions for our courses.
We also separately offer (not as part of the 11+ Course)
Vision: to empower people by enhancing their love of and skills in learning and reasoning.
We strive to teach, guide and support children in such a way that they will want to continue to themselves push the boundaries of their learning and reasoning.
The course covers the following subjects.
Lesson structure varies but most lessons include the following elements.
The subject matter of the subjects is taught during the first two thirds of the course. The remainder of the course focuses on consolidation, training in performing under pressure, and mock tests in the latter part. The last few sessions include mock 11+ tests.
Children attend one lesson weekly, normally only during term-time (Slough term dates apply). The lesson is 3¼ hours long. Regular work (traditional and online) must be done at home. Work at home will typically amount to between 6 and 9 hours per week during term time, and less during most school holidays. 35 lessons are currently planned.
N.B. Lessons are scheduled during the latter part of the summer holiday 2020 because most 11+ tests now take place soon after the summer holidays. Keep this in mind when planning for these holidays.
Children and parents have unlimited access to numerous teaching videos. The video lessons are a very powerful tool for learning that children and parents can review in their own time and can use to learn at their own pace.
We issue kits that include folders, a dictionary, a thesaurus, a vocabulary book, a novel, some practice materials, a pencil, and a highlighter pen. During the course we issue numerous worksheets (produced by us) and publications (published practice materials), and plastic cubes for 3D NVR The list of publication we issue is not fixed.
A wide range of homework is set during approximately the first two thirds of the course. This can include vocabulary work, completing varied exercises, homework sheets on units taught (Study Tests), work from publications issued, and studying teaching videos. Study Tests must be submitted to the LC for marking. Other work must be marked and corrected at home.
Homework in approximately the last third is largely set from some of the numerous publications that we issue as part of the course.
The following slots are planned. Unviable slots may be cancelled without notice and additional slots may be arranged as required.
Numerous different slots (i.e combinations of day, time and venue) are planned as shown below.
