Mock Exams

We're extremely happy to be able to announce that our 11+ Mock Exams during the half-term and summer holidays will all be held in-person at Tonbridge School.

Sunday 6th June

Friday 30th July

Friday 6th August

Friday 13th August

Children will be able to sit all parts of the Kent assessment and each of the dates above will offer a different set of questions, meaning you're not just limited to one practice. Exams will start at 9am prompt, so we do ask that all attendees are registered by 8.45am at the latest to ensure everything runs as smoothly as possible. Your child's papers will be marked and feedback sent out to you after 7 days and will include where they have done well, in which areas they need to improve and most importantly, techniques and tips to help make those improvements.

Cost = £60

Summer Revision Courses

Running throughout the summer, our four-day revision classes also offer a chance to practice abridged papers, work on areas for improvement and receive feedback. Classes are kept small to allow for individual attention as well as peer-to-peer learning.

Practice makes perfect - we have three separate sets of materials on offer, so you can book more than one week.

Four-day Revision Course cost = £120

Weekly Classes

Classes are run by an experienced and enthusiastic tutor, are fun and interactive and encourage peer-to-peer learning as well as focussing on individual needs. The course will cover all aspects of the Kent Test and aim to build early confidence in practices and techniques.

Chelsea Crathern - 11+ Tutor

Chelsea has tutored on the Recre8 courses for more than 10 years, introducing our term time classes and mock exam days to complement the established holiday tutoring and revision courses each Easter and Summer. 

Chelsea's aim for each session is to create an atmosphere in which children feel motivated to learn and which helps build their confidence throughout the year. Her incredible enthusiasm and energy make classes engaging and something to look forward to rather than to be endured and her understanding of individual needs and ability to relate to the children allows her to build a strong rapport with her students.

The progressive syllabus in place for the weekly sessions covers all elements of the Kent test and can act as a standalone course or be used in readiness for, or to reinforce 1:1 or parental tutoring.


"Chelsea has tutored both my boys and has taken a lot of the stress of the 11+ away. I have always felt very confident in her ability, not only to teach them the skills to pass but also to give them confidence in themselves… My youngest generally leaves buzzing. Not what you'd expect after an hour of 11+ work! I highly recommend her as a tutor" - Oscar's Mum

Chelsea was a great and really fun teacher. She made learning and preparing for the 11+ enjoyable, which is quite an achievement! Chelsea made me feel calm, she was always helpful and always gave tips on how to make questions easier to do". - George N. 

"Whilst preparing your child for the 11+ is important, it is crucial they are engaged and want to learn and Chelsea ensured this was always the case. Chelsea had an excellent rapport with my child and was able to make the whole experience fun and something to look forward to. Homework was set weekly but was not onerous and supported the learning of crucial elements of the 11+. I could see the progress my child had gained, both in terms of knowledge and confidence, over the course of the year, which made him calm and confident on the day. Both my children were taught by Chelsea and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her to anyone".- George's Mum

"I learned a lot from Chelsea's lessons. She made us learn in a fun way. It really helped me do the best I could do. Thank you Chelsea". - Ben S.

"I know that my son, like his two siblings could not have been better prepared. Both the weekly sessions and revision days as well as the mock tests have allowed all three to feel confident in how to tackle the different areas of the test; develop exam techniques and most importantly have helped instil confidence in their own abilities. Chelsea's ability to relate to the children, to encourage them and to develop their own self belief has, in my opinion, been of huge benefit regardless of the 11+ outcome. All three children felt that they would not have done as well if it hadn't been for Chelsea. I cannot recommend her sessions more highly". - Ben's Mum
