Please note: In-person lessons are currently suspended due to the enhanced lockdown currently in force. We look forward to welcoming everyone back into the classroom as soon as the schools re-open.

COVID-19 Update

We have introduced a number of protocols to protect students, tutors and parents when using the classroom.


Since 2004 11 Plus Pass have been providing quality independent 11+ tuition to students in and around Milton Keynes.

Our tuition sessions are designed and run by Rachel Higgins and Rebecca Newman, both of whom are highly qualified teachers who have been teaching for many years.

Sessions typically run for one hour. They run Monday to Friday after school and Saturday throughout the day. All weekly sessions consist of small groups, with one-to-one slots available for these students over the summer months. The small group sessions run throughout most school holidays.

Sessions are currently run strictly in accordance with our Coronavirus guidelines.

Normally you would book your child in for one session per week in the months leading up to the exam. An initial assessment is recommended before starting 11-plus tuition.

During the school holidays we also run intensive Holiday Schools which consist of five one-hour sessions held over one week. Holiday Schools cover all aspects of the Buckinghamshire 11-plus exam.

Unlike many other 11-Plus tutors we don't charge extra for materials used in the lessons.

Our Teachers

Becky and Rachel run their sessions independently, but work together during the Mock Examinations, invigilating and in the feedback writing process.

Rachel Higgins

Rachel has an Honours Degree, a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education and a Masters Degree in Education. Her qualifications read BA (Hons), PGCE (Dis) MA Ed.

Rachel has been teaching generally since 1987 and teaching the 11-plus for many years. Her services as an 11-plus teacher are very much in demand. Parents of previous students recommend her highly and have often booked in siblings years in advance.

Becky Newman

Becky has an Honours Degree and has worked as a Lecturer specialising in learning difficulties, particularly students on the Autistic Spectrum. She also has a Teaching Certificate, a Learning Support Certificate and qualifications in assessment.

Becky is a conscientious and caring 11 plus teacher who works according to 11 Plus Pass methods with much success. She is a specialist in non-verbal reasoning.

She has been CRB police checked and can show documentation on request.

My daughter had tuition with Rachel and Becky for the Secondary Transfer Test. She passed it successfully. The sessions were tailored to individual needs of every child and definitely helped my daughter to identify the gaps in her knowledge to work on.
Since the first day my daughter Mia joined Rachel’s English class for 11plus she absolutely loved it and said she had so much fun while learning. As a parent, I am so proud of her by getting a score of 138. Thank you very much again for your help and support for the last few month.
We were really pleased with the professional service that we received from Becky & Rachel. From the initial assessment, the weekly lessons, supportive feedback and the top up holiday courses, we could not fault any part of the service.
