These workshops are ONLINE for children who are currently in year 5,  who have 11-plus entrance exams in September 2020 and January 2021.

In each workshop we will look at one of the three main types of creative writing questions that they may encounter in their exams.  Children will be sent handouts for each session of helpful vocabulary and phrases to help guide them through their story. They will be given clear instructions on how to maximise marks and complete their story within the time limits given during the exam. The work completed in the sessions will be marked by our 11-plus tutors and returned to your child.

There are 6 spaces per workshop
