Summer Daisies Creative Writing Courses

11+ Creative Writing for Exams

Intensive Course


Is your child sitting an 11+ creative writing exam to an independent or grammar school in 2023?



This course is for children applying to independent and grammar schools in 2023.

Over 5 sessions of two hours, your child will learn how to identify exactly what is required for each creative writing question type  and how to write to the required standard.

Your child will study the text features and language skills (figurative language, sensory description, sentence structure and punctuation) needed for each type of writing task.

Timed answers will be marked at 11+ level with brief examiner’s report so that you have an accurate idea of your child’s strengths and weaknesses.

Over the 5 morning sessions, we will study:

  • narrative writing 
  • continuing a story
  • formal persuasive letter 
  • descriptive writing based on a picture/written prompt
  • discursive writing
  • personal recount



This course comprises:

  • 5 sessions of 2 hours (with a 15 minute break

  • end-of-term examiner’s report so that you have an accurate idea of your child’s strengths and weaknesses.

Just wanted to let you know that O has been offered places at our first choice independent school. He also received offers from the other schools we applied to!

Thank you so much for your guidance and advice to O. I have a feeling we may be coming back for more lessons! I have recommended you to other friends whose children will also be sitting for their 11+ entrance exams this year.


Thank you for all your help and the amazing support you provided for H during 2020. You were really fantastic at delivering what is needed to ensure H passed the English 11+ exams without any of the pressure.

You went the extra mile during the Covid pandemic and gave your full commitment to ensure H’s was successful in achieving his goals.

It is obvious that this is far more than a business to you and you relish seeing your pupils achieve their full potential.

He was entered into 4 Grammar School 11+ entrance exams and he passed all of them achieving  ranking in the top 2%.

We are ever grateful for your efforts and highly recommend Coriden English Tuition.


I just wanted to let you know about school offers. J has received offers from all the schools he applied to, with scholarships from Merchant Taylor’s and City of London Boys.
Thank you for helping J in achieving this.

Just wanted to let you know A made it through to St Paul’s.

I want to say a huge thank you for getting him through this  – I don’t think it would have been possible without you!


C did really well and got offers from all schools, i.e. MTS, Hampton, Latymer, City of London Boys, John Lyon and St Benedict’s, with academic scholarships from City, JL and St B’s!

Thank you for your excellent teaching.


I am delighted to inform you that B has been offered a place at North London Collegiate School. I would like to thank you once again for your high standard of English coaching which put her in this position today. I am so glad and proud.

Thank you.
