The exams in April, May and June were unable to proceed. Parents were given the option to rebook or offered a full refund. The vast majority of refunds were issued within 1-2 business days.
  • Each SDE 11+ Mock Exam Session was limited to 15 candidates.
  • There were special hygiene measures (such as hand washing) at Registration.
  • PPE was made available free of charge at the Registration Desk for staff and students. Staff were required to wear a mask if they need to move within 2 metres of others. In line with DfE Guidance for 9-10 year old children, candidates were not required to wear masks but were welcome to do so.
  • Desks and chairs were disinfected at the beginning of the day and between each use.
  • All exam papers and answer sheets were placed on the candidate’s desk before they entered the Exam Hall or classroom.
  • Candidates were sat at least 2 metres apart in the Exam Hall or classroom (an enhanced measure taken by SDE over and above the requirements of the Government Guidance at the time). Please see our example Tuition Centre diagram and Tuition Centre photos (SDE Burkes Court, Beaconsfield).
  • We maintained records of the seating positions of candidates and staff at each exam and kept these for at least four weeks to assist with Track and Trace.
Comprehensive details of the steps we took to keep everyone safe at the SDE 11+ Mock Exams were seen by the policy team at the DfE who are responsible for Out of School Settings, who commented that the plans “seem[ed] very sensible”.
While we hope for a ‘return to normality’ this year, we are resigned to the fact that special measures are highly likely to be necessary. The exact arrangements will depend on the circumstances nearer to the time and the latest Government Guidance to the Out of School Sector. At the present time, all SDE 11+ Mock Exam ‘bubbles’ are being limited to 15 candidates and accommodation has been booked so that we can adhere to 2 metres distancing between candidates while the children are writing their tests. It may be possible to relax these arrangements if the pandemic subsides. As well as being provide with access to comparative data for the children attending the Session with your child, you will also be able to access our All Time Lists of Scores which include the results of all candidates who have written the same test papers in past years. The All Time Lists of Scores are likely to contain the most comprehensive and reliable 11+ Mock Exam comparative data available.

Initial Assessments
The Course begins (Weeks 1 and 2) with initial assessments in Maths, Verbal Reasoning, Non Verbal Reasoning and English. The results of these assessments will be reported to you in writing.

The Susan Daughtrey Education 2019-20 11 Course takes account of all the known requirements of the Buckinghamshire GL Assessment® 11 tests making the SDE 11 Course a very thorough and effective preparation of your child. Many thousands of hours have been spent by Susan (author of the highly successful Verbal Reasoning Technique and Practice series of books) writing and refining the Course (including its structure, lesson plans and materials). All of the material Susan has written for SDE’s 11 Courses is currently unpublished and is therefore only available to students attending the Courses.

Prep Bag

At the first session, your child will be given an attractive Prep Bag containing homework books, writing materials and a ring binder. Weekly homework varies depending on the topics taught in class, and is supplied to your child at the end of each class in a convenient ‘Student Homework Pack’ together with a ‘Parent Homework Pack’ containing all of Susan’s worksheets, together with the answers. Additional homework is set over the school holidays to maintain continuity and to revise, test and extend the work already completed in class. Your child will be provided with additional published books as part of the Course, in order to further supplement and practise the significant amount of work that Susan has written.
