Our Story

Having supported our own children with secondary school transition in Gloucestershire, we know how difficult that transition can be! We're here to help you on your grammar school journey, from the early stages of finding out whether grammar school is right for your child, up to starting school in September.

We hold several events throughout the year for children in Year 4 & 5, including affordable 11plus Mock Test papers, short courses, fun days and online revision sessions. We believe that all parents/carers should have access to high quality information to support their children regardless of if they decide that tutoring is something they would like to do. We hold free parent/carer information evenings where we discuss everything about the Gloucestershire 11plus Test.

But we aren't just a tuition centre

We're here for you for the whole of your grammar school journey. We can offer individual consultations, signpost to resources and help you with applying for grammar school and completing appeals if the results weren't what you hoped.

Read what parents think

Really please to have used Cotswold Education for a number of extras for my son's 11+ journey in 2021. I took part in a helpful online seminar. My son did a remote course for a few days in the holiday, plus an in-person workshop. The mock test was invaluable in him getting used to taking a test in a new environment under strict test conditions. My son secured a place at the grammar of his choice. I'd definitely recommend them to anyone else whose children want to do the 11+.

What is Grammar School?

Gloucestershire has 7 grammar schools, 2 of which are co-educational and the rest are single sex. The decision about whether grammar school is right for your child can be a difficult one but there are ways that you can explore this further.

Preparing for the 11plus

What are the 21 question types? How do you choose the best resources? How can you tell if your child will get into grammar school? Does my child need a tutor? Many parents ask themselves these questions when starting 11plus prep!

You will often see a number of 11plus "myths" shared on forums and social media. We've tried to "mythbust" some of the main statements we've come across. Seen something online that you want us to look at? Get in touch with your query!
