If you live in an area where children have to prepare for and take the 11+ exams for secondary schools, you’ll be aware that the exams take place each year round about now. Here in the Mojomums Office we’ve had three Mums whose children did theirs last week.
It’s a very stressful experience and we can honestly say that we’re glad it’s all over!
Now we just have to wait for the results so we can choose our school accordingly.
Here in South Hertfordshire for the Watford schools, there is help with preparation in the form of monthly mock exams. These take place at Cassiobury School and run from October and all the way up to the exam. Our children here attended some of these and found them incredibly helpful. It’s a great way to introduce children to exam conditions but in a small and friendly environment.
