We provide mocks in English and Maths for 7+, 8+ 11+ (9+ and 10+ on demand) and papers are set to a high standard on the basis of current independent school exam trends.
We aim to give parents an impartial view of a child’s level of achievement in an unfamiliar exam environment, whilst providing the experience of exam-day conditions for the child. 7+ and 8+ will also be tested on listening skills and mental Maths. Please note: 10+ exams are available on request.

You will receive the marked papers back. This provides invaluable first-hand insight into performance. Feedback will be given on areas requiring additional attention and support. Our mocks will also allow parents to see their child’s results in the context of other candidates going for similar schools at 7+, 8+ and 11+.
At Yellowbird we always try to make the exam experience as stress-free as possible (they have enough of that). Sitting a mock reduces exam-day nervous and will help your child to understand what will be expected of them on the day. It also allows children to interact with both new children, adults and to settle down quickly in unfamiliar surroundings.
How it works
Our mock exams are run the same way as normal exams from registration through to dismissal. They are held in a school environment. Children will sit exams in English and Maths with a short break in between. These mock exams are aimed at boosting confidence and are carefully set at the correct level for the time in the academic year for each year group.
Your child will be fully reassured as they are talked through all stages expected in exam situations and we actively encourage children attending to ask questions to ensure they are fully prepared and confident to do well on the day.
"The mock exams were incredibly useful and we now know which areas to concentrate on over the next two months. This has also helped us to know which schools to aim for."
The Mocks calmed all of our nerves!
"The Mock exams gave us clarity in the areas where our daughter needed practice. We were able to confidently track her progress from June through to January, ensuring she was making the necessary improvements. The Mocks gave us excellent feedback and calmed all of our nerves!"
