11+ (Secondary Transfer Test)
There are two types of mainstream secondary schools in Buckinghamshire: grammar schools and upper schools. Grammar schools admit children based on their performance in the Secondary Transfer Test (previously known as the 11+). Upper schools admit any child, regardless of ability. The pass mark is 121 points.
For the past five years up until 2017, the 11+ was independently produced by the Centre for Evaluation & Monitoring (CEM) at the University of Durham. However in 2018, the test will be produced by GL Assessments. Detailed information will be published by Buckinghamshire County Council in November.

11+ Weekly Tutorials
Children learn best in small groups and with clear set goals. Classes at Maple last for one hour and a half and homework is given on a weekly basis to reinforce what has been taught in class.
The session include 11+ concepts that are not necessarily covered in state primary schools, such as non-verbal reasoning. They encompass deep learning in English language (vocabulary, writing, comprehension and verbal reasoning), maths (problem solving, tables, arithmetic) non-verbal reasoning, and confidence. We also provide termly mini mock tests to improve exam skill and exposure of the 11+ question types.
