Denise Hines is an experienced 11+ personal tutor, who has created various 11 Plus mock exams and delivered group workshops to support students in preparing for the 11 Plus exams, giving them the best possible opportunity for success. She is a qualified teacher and a senior member of the JK Educate teaching team. Denise will teach, equip and inspire students to achieve the very best they can in their entrance exams.
Our 11 Plus course will boost your child’s readiness for the 11+ exams. Combining a first-class boarding school experience with classroom work and fun activities, it will provide a valuable experience of learning and independence for the 10-year-olds who attend. This is a particularly valuable taster experience for those considering a boarding environment in the future. Award-winning Canford School’s idyllic grounds and impressive indoor and outdoor facilities are ideal for running our exciting programme of activities.
We will cover every aspect of the entrance exams – maths, non-verbal reasoning, creative writing, comprehension (reading), verbal reasoning and critical thinking. There will be five days of teaching, in two sessions a day, plus activities including sports, drama, and art & design. On Friday, all students will join an action-packed excursion to Bournemouth and the beach with their fellow students.
Accommodation will be in typical single, twin, or small dormitory rooms with shared bathroom facilities. In addition to the academic and extracurricular offerings, students will also have the opportunity to join a global community on campus, creating a truly international boarding experience that will enhance their personal growth and cultural awareness.
