Our Mocks are designed to give students the best practice under exam conditions for their entrance exams. The exams are made in-house to reflect the standard and requirements of the schools in our area and will assess each of the topics and skills covered at all levels of primary testing and school entrance.

We have two types of test for primary students: our incredibly popular and effective Primary Mocks (7+ / 8+ / 10+ / 11+) and our comprehensive Year 5 'Baseline' Test, designed to give parents extra support in terms of judging the best programme of study and help in choosing the best schools.

Bespoke Mock Exams with targeted feedback…

To make any programme of study truly tailored to the individual it is necessary to ascertain their initial level. Our test provides an objective evaluation of the student’s abilities so that we can give you specific and relevant schools advice and to build their programme around them.

The test is not a mock, and as such is slightly different in structure and content. This is because we aren’t just looking at the end result but the attitude and technique that contributes towards that final score. The Baseline Test is roughly split between English and Maths but also contains elements of Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning. The test is divided into a series of mini-tests of varying length to gauge (amongst other things): ability, potential, technique, learning style, processing, working memory, spatial appreciation, resourcefulness, problem solving, stamina, focus, concentration and confidence.

The tests are written by Toby Steedman, our hugely experienced founder, and require no prior preparation. Students should expect to encounter material beyond their current level, asked in unusual ways, as well as core content tested using familiar styles and formats.

Our Mock Tests are all written in-house and, thanks to over 7 years of testing for a comprehensive cross section of schools, we have built up an excellent series of benchmarks for different entrance requirements. We are able to tailor any of our tests to the exact requirements of the student and provide an unmatched practice environment.

One of the chief benefits of Torchlight Mocks is that following the exams, you’ll be given extensive personalised feedback and papers marked in detail which will provide you with a full understanding of how well prepared the student is and more importantly what they can do in the final term to ensure they reach their peak for January. As well as grades and full marking, our feedback you receive will include: in-depth analysis of answers and how they could be improved; practise exercises to improve key skills including suggestions for work with your child’s tutor or at home; model answers to help you see where extra marks can be gained.

Tests at all entrance points (7+ / 8+ / 10+ / 11+) consist of Maths, English Reading and Composition. We can add Verbal/Non-Verbal Reasoning if requested. We also provide tests for non-standard entrance points (9+ , etc), please email for details.
