Mock exams and tuition Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield
Here at S&S Education we provide Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield based exams to help you to
monitor your childâs progress and performance at regular intervals throughout the year.
This is aimed at developing their confidence and ensuring that their overall chance of 11
plus success increases.
My son had tuition with Sarah during Year 5 in preparation for the 11+. He really enjoyed the lessons and found them very beneficial. In particular he embraced the maths work and the lessons gave him the opportunity to focus on topics that he hadnât covered or focused on as thoroughly at school. Sarah provided comprehensive reports each term to keep us updated on his progress and is very approachable if you have any queries or concerns.

My daughter has been receiving tuition for the 11+ for the last twelve months. As well as preparing her for the exam we have also noticed an increase in confidence in her day to day school work which has resulted in her moving up a group and receiving an award for her mathematics. She enjoys her lessons with Sarah, and has built up a good relationship with her over the year. The homework has challenged her and allowed her to approach new concepts with confidence. I would not hesitate to recommend Sarah as a tutor.

My daughter has been tutored by Sarah for the last 12 months to concentrate on 11+ work and I cannot recommend her more highly. My daughter has a great relationship with Sarah, who makes lessons fun whilst covering all the topics required. Sarah is exceptionally well organised and nothing is too much trouble, homework is sent promptly and lessons thoroughly planned. My daughter has gained much self confidence by attending weekly lessons with Sarah. She has gone to school with a renewed enthusiasm for both English and maths and has been moved to the top sets for both. I would not hesitate to recommend Sarah and consider her a first-class tutor.

My child has attended the mocks, from the first one he almost ranked last because of a lack of exam experience. Then in practice after taking the second comparative one he came in third place which is a remarkable improvement in his learning over the last few months and increase in speed and methodology enabled him to answer questions at speed and with confidence. Even if there were questions he wasnât sure of, he would work out how to eliminate the odds to get a fair chance closer to getting an answer. The results and analysis were clear and easy to follow so that we know where our private tutor can help improve on certain areas such as NVR or mathematics. I would use S&S Education as a vehicle to ensure my child has an all round experience in a practice to understand the level my child is on. Thus it helps with making the school choices realistic and suitable to which school he can attain entry.
Thank you for running these events so that our children can have a good experience of the mock exam environment.
I thought the venue was suitable and the exam experience served Scarlett well as it has confirmed there is an issue with time which we can focus on as the exam approaches. It has also been good to experience exam conditions as hopefully she will now be less nervous for the actual exam.
The results and analysis were easy to follow and I would use S & S again.
I would also recommend S&S to anyone else in my position in the future.
I look forward to Scarlett working with you as I think she will really benefit from one on one tuition as she often just needs reassurance.
You can also see where she needs the extra help.

I would highly recommend S&S 11+ Mock, the examination is very well organised and Sarah exceptionally efficient.
Walmley Hall is an ideal venue, easy to find and ample parking which puts the children at ease. The mock provided my child with a great insight as to what to expect on the day of the actual exam. It also helped her to understand how to fill out the answer sheet correctly and to practice her timings under exam conditions.
The post exam analysis was very thorough, providing a huge amount of detail, thus highlighting my childâs strengths and weaknesses. This was a great help for my child to understand what to concentrate her efforts on.

I would highly recommend Sam Poxon as a Maths tutor.
She worked very effectively with my son for approximately 4 months. During that time not only did she help secure his knowledge, understanding and application of the foundation GCSE curriculum; most importantly (for me) she helped my son believe he could do it! And he did- passing with almost full marks.

My daughter has been receiving tuition for the last year. She enjoyed going every week and the homework set was just the right amount. I felt well informed of how my daughter was performing, thanks to regular reports and the tutor was always happy to give feedback.
Having tuition enabled my daughter to cover every area that could crop up on the 11+ exam. This helped her to feel confident when she sat it and as a result she performed brilliantly!
Right from the beginning Sarah was great with my daughter. She understood her strengths and weaknesses and knew her really well as an individual person. My daughter thoroughly enjoyed going each week and being challenged. Sarahâs feedback was exceptional throughout; from the weekly sessions, the termly reports and the extremely thorough analysis from the exams. She is always totally honest and very approachable. I would highly recommend Sarah and already have her booked for my younger daughter.
Sarah really listened to me and understood the areas I was struggling with and that I wanted to work on. She is very kind and caring. She doesnât just teach you she also has fun with you. I found the lessons very interesting and enjoyable. As well as them being fun I went away from each session with more and more knowledge each week. Now I have passed my 11+ I really miss going to Sarahâs amazing sessions. Thank you Sarah for every thing you have done to help me pass the 11+.
Leo started with Sarah in a small group of children to prepare for his 11+ exam. Within only a few sessions, Leo felt he had learnt more from Sarah than in the 6 weeks he had been back at school since the summer holidays.
Leo continued to enjoy each lesson and also happily completed the homework and test papers Sarah set each week, with no quibbles.
Sarah was great at gaging exactly where Leo was at, and pitching the level of work to meet his capability and working on the areas he found more of a challenge.
After Leo sat (passed) the 11+ we gave him the option to continue with Sarah for work on year 6 SATS, which he enthusiastically wanted to do. This time Leo ended up with 1:1 tuition from Sarah, and again thrived each week, facing the challenges she set him with enthusiasm. In the end she continued after the Year 6 SATS with preparation for secondary school which has set him good stead.
Leo was reluctant to finish with Sarah at the end of year 6, and that can only be a true testament to what an excellent tutor she is.
We have had no hesitation in recommending her to other parents, and she has now taken on our second son Tom for 11+ tutoring with the same care and attention as she did Leo. Highly recommended.
