Our GL Style 11+ Mock Tests give an authentic experience of what sitting the 2024 Grammar School Entrance Test will be like. The tests comprise of two full length papers taken under supervised exam conditions in a secondary school venue. The test is taken with other children to help build your child’s confidence in this environment. The tests are designed to be relatively challenging, whilst enabling all students to gain experience of test conditions. There is a refreshment break between the papers.
Please note this event is for Year 5 children only. The mock tests have either morning or afternoon sessions as the sessions use the same papers. Please book only one session per date to avoid sitting the same paper twice. Each date has a different paper so you are able to attend multiple mock tests.
The morning session starts at 9.30am (doors open 9.15am)
The afternoon session starts at 12.45pm (doors open 12.30pm)
Our Mock Tests are running on the following dates:
16th March - 9:30am

Parents/Carers are welcome to stay and chat with our experienced staff over free refreshments. We’ll also have a range of books and other resources for you to browse and buy. You don’t have to bring anything with you other than a snack and drink for your child during the break between papers.
After your child sits the paper, you will receive an extensive, individually prepared report with raw marks, percentage marks and ranking position, which will be emailed to you within 14 days of the test. We also provide a summary of your child’s performance and recommendations for how they can improve their scores. We will send you your child’s marked answers sheets after the test with a link to a feedback video going through all of the questions and giving the correct answers. We even include some useful hints and tips in these videos, which will help with future tests.
Why sit a Mock Test?
Practicing 11+ questions is really helpful but this on its own doesn’t necessarily prepare your child for what it will be like to sit the actual test. This is where attending a mock test can be really helpful. Sitting a mock test gives your child the chance to practice being in an environment with peers, under exam conditions. This can help them feel more comfortable with the environment and children often show a marked improvement over several mocks.
The actual pass mark for an 11+ exam changes yearly, so your child’s ranking can tell you more about how likely they are to get into the school of their choice than the individual scores on the practice paper.
We have been running mock tests for over 12 years. The means we are able to provide you with a ranking that will give you a good idea of what school your child is likely to get into.
