Welcome to BOFA, the personalised 11+ learning tool
BOFA includes 48 Tests, Explanations and Retests and 48 Quick tests.
BOFA follows a simple 5 step system to rapidly improve learning and test performance:
- Tests in all four areas of the 11+ exam: Maths, English, Verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning.
- Each online test mimics the timings, questions and difficulty of the real 11 plus exam,
- similar to NFER, GL Assessment and CEM,
- giving the pupil an opportunity to develop knowledge and confidence.
- Automatic Marking takes place once a test is completed.
- The questions answered incorrectly are separated from the correct answers,
- BOFA then discards the correct questions and focuses on the questions answered incorrectly.
- The Explanation and Practice stage covers the incorrect questions question.
- The answer, method and the pupil's error are clearly explained.
- The student is then given the opportunity to answer another similar question,
- to ensure they have understood the explanation.
- If they answer this incorrectly BOFA will once again explain the error and the correct answer.
- A bespoke Re-test is then compiled.
- The Re-test questions are similar to those answered incorrectly in the first test,
- this allowing the pupil to practice the method and improve upon their weaknesses.
- A printable report is created after the parent is emailed with the result.
- The report shows the questions answered incorrectly,
- the areas the pupil needs to improve upon and the learning progress made between the original test and the re-test.
- BOFA also emails a progress report to the parent/tutor outlining the result, encouraging them to praise the pupil.
What makes BOFA the best?
- All of BOFA's questions are unique and never repeated so answers are always understood and never copied.
- The tests allow pupils to work and learn at their own pace through each of the 11+ areas.
- All 56 types of 11+ questions are covered over the four subjects.
- The tests create a focused and progressive learning experience where the weaker areas are identified, explained and then practicedwithout wasting time on the pupil's competent areas.
- BOFA's feedback system allows for accelerated and targeting learning.
- Extension work, in the form of quick tests, is available for high achievers.

- At the time of preparation, the Governors of The Liverpool Blue Coat School believe that all the information given below is both accurate and relevant. This information is based upon procedures and patterns currently in use, but it should not be assumed by any person that there would be no change affecting the relevant arrangements detailed here, in subsequent years.
- The Liverpool Blue Coat School is a Non Denominational Voluntary Aided Selective Secondary School. It is a four-form entry school, which admits 120 students normally aged 11+ (4x30) into the four Year 7 Forms each September irrespective of gender.
- According to the School's Articles of Government, the arrangements for the admission of students to the School shall be determined by the Governing Body in line with relevant legislation.
- The Liverpool Blue Coat School participates in the Liverpool Local Education Authority Equal Preference co-ordinated admission arrangements and therefore it is necessary for applicants to complete both a Liverpool LEA preference form and a School application form.
Admission Arrangements - Year 7
- Applications for admission to the school are invited from parents whose children will be in the final year of their Primary School Education (Year 6) prior to secondary transfer. Such parents are welcome to attend the School's Open Evening in the July preceding their child's entry into their final year in the Primary School.
- Parents must write to the Headteacher of The Liverpool Blue Coat School requesting a Blue Coat Application Form, which will be available after the Open Evening and this Application Form must be completed and returned directly to the School by Friday 16 September 2011.
- Parents must also place the Blue Coat School as a preference on the preference form/common application form issued by their Home Education Authority. This preference form must be returned to the Home Education Authority.
- The Liverpool Blue Coat School will only support changes to the preference form if there has been a material change to circumstances e.g a medical condition. However, all requests will be considered by the Admissions Committee, which must be submitted fourteen clear days prior to the published national offer date.
- The 120 places will be filled by those students who achieve the highest aggregate score in the entrance tests, and who additionally meet their Home Education Authority's preference criteria.
- Entrance tests will consist of a Mathematics Test, English Test and a Non-Verbal Reasoning Test. You can use BOFA 11+ to help prepare for the exam:
- Should there be a tie for last place(s) available the mark scored on the Non-Verbal Reasoning test will determine the result. If still a tie the English mark will be the tie breaker. However, should there be a student in the care of the Local Authority involved in the original tie this student will take overall preference.
- The school will endeavour to ensure that parents are informed of the outcome of the entrance test before the final submission date for the preference forms for the Liverpool Local Authority.
- The Governors will publish to the Local Authority the results of the admission procedure. The offer of a place at The Liverpool Blue Coat School will come from the Local Education Authority, who will make the offer on behalf of the Governing Body.
