Mentor Education


Mentor Education are the 11 Plus people. So much so, we have written the book about it!

We know that passing the 11 Plus can be a stressful time. With Mentor you will be in safe hands and give your child the best chance of passing the exam and getting into their chosen school.

For almost forty years, Mentor has offered professional one-to-one tuition in London and worldwide. We have helped over 90,000 children to discover the joy of learning. Our touchstones remain a personal, professional service and a focus on helping every individual child to achieve success.

The Evening Standard call us ‘the UK’s most successful 11 Plus tuition agency.’ The Independent say we ‘have an exemplary record of success at the best schools’. This is not surprising given 90 per cent of our pupils receive offers from their first-choice school and 100 per cent of our pupils gain entry to their first or second-choice secondary school.

Mentor approach tuition with the view that there is no one size fits all when it comes to children and education. At Mentor we make sure that every one of our pupils is matched with a tutor that has extensive experience with their first-choice school. We also ensure the tutor matches your child’s individual style of learning and shares their passions, interests and hobbies.

Mentor’s 11 Plus programme has been created by our Director of Education who has 28 years of experience within the private education sector. Her previous roles have included Academic Head of a Prestigious London Prep School and Head of 11 Plus entry, where she has helped thousands of children get into their first-choice schools.

At Mentor Education we offer a plethora of services from 1-to-1 tuition, 11 Plus Weekend Classes, Mock Exams and Interview Mastery courses. Our world leading Academic Assessments are worked in conjunction with Cambridge University and the only one of their kind. Our relationship with the University of Cambridge allows us access to information that gives you an in-depth view of how your child is really getting on at school and help you make the right school choice.

We have written published the best selling book ‘How to Pass the 11 Plus: An insider’s guide to schools, tutoring and exam success’. This gives practical advice and insider tips for success.

Mentor Education will be with you at every step of your school entrance journey. From the initial conversation with our expert consultants, all the way to celebrating your child’s successes when they reach their academic goals. School entrance preparation as it should be.
