The objective of this event is to allow children to have a taster of what it’s like to sit an exam in a large hall, so they can get to know what to expect when the real 11+ exam occurs a week or so later. The familiarisation day was run by the local authority up until 2014, but has been cut from 2015 onwards. We can’t replicate the event on the same scale, but we do offer this event to give children a flavour of an examination in a large hall setting. In 2019 we welcomed approximately 70 children onto the familiarisation day, and we hope that social distancing rules will allow us to offer that number of places again in 2021. It will allow children to overcome any nerves that can (understandably) build up as they face this important exam at an early age.
The local authority Familiarisation Day papers traditionally were not marked; however, parents may choose to have the Chatterton Tuition papers marked, for a fee. The fee for marking and written feedback (as per our mock sessions) is £54 per candidate.
The papers we use on the day are written and put together by us specifically for the Familiarisation Test. None of the students will have seen these questions before. Children need only bring two pencils (HB or softer), an eraser, a snack and a labelled water bottle (optional). Booking is essential.
Date: Friday 3rd September 2021 – 09:00 – 11:30
