Eleven plus (11+) tutoring


Ever since the Marlow Language Centre was founded some 30 years ago, we have often been asked whether we are able provide 11+ tuition. In the past we have always concentrated on language tuition for children and adults of all ages and despite the growing demand we have not included 11+ tuition in our curriculum. However, we are now very excited to announce that thanks to our cooperation with a locally based, highly experienced Cambridge graduate with at least 10 years’ experience in coaching students for the 11+ examination, we are able to provide this service in-house to both existing and new clients.


Prior to committing to any lessons we offer potential students the opportunity to meet their teacher. The consultation takes the form of a 15- to 20-minute meeting with our 11+ tutoring specialist (at the Marlow Language Centre).

During the consultation our 11+ tutor will outline his teaching method and approach. The consultation will also enable your son/daughter to meet our 11+ tutor and establish a rapport. During the consultation itself our 11+ tutor will happily answer any questions you may have and advise you as to the best approach going forward.

There is no obligation whatsoever to book a course following the consultation.

Course delivery

Following the consultation you’ll then have the option of enrolling your son/daughter for a series of lessons.

Generally speaking we ask that students commit to one academic term. We recommend 1 x 60-minute session per week during term time. Sessions can be taken between the hours of 07:30 and 20:00 Monday to Friday. It is also possible to take additional sessions on an intensive or non-intensive basis during School holidays.

Sessions can take place at our centre in Marlow or your home (15-mile radius of Marlow).
