7+/8+ Tuition

7+ Exams are typically taken for students going into Year 3, whilst the 8+ Exams are typically for those entering Year 4. The exams are very similar, with the 8+ Examinations containing slightly more advanced content to reflect the older age group. 

How can we help?

Plato Tuition can help your child achieve the best possible results in the 7+/8+ Exams through tailored tuition, with vast experience delivering tuition in all key subjects (English, Mathematics, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning). 

We are not a generic tuition company and instead specialise in Entrance Exams, meaning you will benefit from tuition given by tutors who are experts in the independent-school landscape and know exactly how to prepare your child for these demanding exams.  

 Private Independent Tuition


Our private lessons are exactly that, private. One-to-one lessons allow your child to receive the full attention of our expert tutors and allow for a fully tailored and custom-built learning plan, based on the students strengths and weaknesses. Private lessons are an excellent solution if you are looking to cover a large amount in a small time, or can be particularly effective with longer term commitments as it allows a friendly and engaging relationship to develop between student and tutor.  


We are international in scope. As well as helping families in the UK, we also specialise in helping families from China, Singapore and Hong Kong with UK Entrance Exam preparation. Our in-person tuition focuses on the London area, whilst our online tuition is available wherever, whenever.  


-Personalised attention: Working one-to-one allows the tutor to quickly and accurately identify the student's individual learning requirements. 


-Improved confidence: We find private tuition is particularly effective at improving a student's confidence as it allows a private space to ask questions and to learn at your own pace. A huge part of the learning process is built on confidence, especially at younger age ranges, and we place a large emphasis on confidence building in all of our lessons.   

-Upmost flexibility and convenience: We appreciate how busy schedules can be for both parents and child. Our private lessons offer maximum flexibility and allow your child to learn at a time that is convenient for both them and you. 

Online 7+/8+ Group Lessons:

Our online group lessons allow students to learn in a

collaborative and social environment, whilst still 

receiving expert attention and focus due to our small 

class sizes (Max four students per class). 


Please get in touch with us to discuss this further, as we are always looking to increase the number of group lessons to provide more choice, flexibility and convenience to our students and parents. 


-Peer interaction: Group lessons provide students an opportunity to develop important social skills such as communication, team-work and listening. 

-Cost-effective: Our group lessons allow us to charge without compromising on the quality of tuition, due to our small class sizes. 

What is the purpose of the 7+/8+ Exams? 

The 7+ and 8+ Exams are typically used by leading independent schools in their admissions process, meaning good performance is vital when wanting to secure entrance to the leading Primary/Preparatory schools. 

Both evaluate academic skills, including English, Mathematics and Reasoning (Verbal and Non-Verbal) to determine their suitability for the school's curriculum.
