I have been offered a massive 50 % discount for Roots 2 Success which I think will probably be of use to Home Educators with primary aged children. I would use these for my children / grandchildren to check on their progress and identify areas of difficulty or strength.
Home Educators who are planning 11+ exams for their child as well as those who just want to see how their child is doing may find this really useful especially at half price!
One product is short online tests targeted at 11+ and SATS exam level for English Comprehension, English Grammar, Maths and Verbal Reasoning. Within each section you can access numerous tests covering all the different subject areas, e.g. fractions, decimals, adverbs, apostrophes etc.
You can also buy packs of 5 minute or 25 minute tests.
The maths packs cover the primary maths curriculum from year 4 to 6.
The English comprehension packs are aimed at younger children who have just learnt to read independently; they consist of short modern stories which are easy to read with a few multiple choice questions at the end.

The Roots2Success Team
Dr Chris Roots grew up in Chatham in the Medway Area of Kent. He vaguely remembers taking the 11 plus – like most children in those days he did not have tuition. Chris attended Sir Joseph Williamson’s Mathematical School, Rochester and left with 10 ‘O’ levels and 3 ‘A’ levels.
Chris graduated with an Upper Second Class Honours Degree in Zoology from Royal Holloway, University of London. He went on to obtain a Ph.D. in Parasitology from King’s College, London before working as an Information Scientist. He qualified as a Youth Worker in 1997 with a Postgraduate Diploma in Community and Youth Work from The University College of St Mark and St John, (Marjon), Plymouth. Chris has worked for voluntary and community youth organisations as well as local authorities in Plymouth, Kent and Medway. He holds two management qualifications and is an Associate of the Chartered Management Institute. Chris has studied in Paris as part of his Ph.D. and has also worked in the USA and Ghana.
He has a range of teaching, training and tutoring experience including working as a Biology Teacher in Ghana and as an Adult Education Tutor in Biology and French for Kent and Medway Adult Education Services.
In addition to running Roots 2 Success, Chris is a Director of Youth Genesis Trust Ltd and volunteers with the Torbay Athletic Club junior team.
Rebecca Roots is a Psychology student at Cardiff University and a former pupil at Torquay Girls’ Grammar School and she remembers the 11 plus very well, although the format of the test has changed since she took it. When she is not studying or representing her club, university and county at athletics, Rebecca finds time to work on the Roots 2 Success website, helping to ensure that all the information is up to date as well as working on our twitter and facebook pages. She also wrote the text for the “Lost” comprehension.
David Roots attends Torquay Boys’ Grammar School and remembers the 11 plus even more vividly than Rebecca! David is a big fan of anything to do with cars: he is a keen Formula 1 fan and enjoys playing on the Xbox One on games such as Project Cars and Forza Motorsport Series – he has even designed a Roots 2 Success livery for Forza Horizon 3. David has been helping out with our mock eleven plus exams as well as checking the Internet for any changes to the 11 plus and open days at England’s 163 grammar schools. David helped write the “Old House” Comprehension as well as helping to plan and test the website.
