Tranby School, formerly known as Hull Collegiate, is a co-ed day school in Anlaby, Yorkshire. Established in 2005 following the merger of two independent schools, it is based at Tranby Croft, a Victorian mansion that occupies over 12 acres of landscaped grounds and a small wood, as well as an AstroTurf pitch. 
Ambitious in nature, Tranby’s academic provision is aimed at maximising pupils’ potential, allowing them to explore their learning capacity to the full. Ranging from art, science and MFL to humanities, mathematics and music, the curriculum reflects the school’s efforts to provide a relevant education, underpinning a memorable intellectual adventure for the benefit of the entire cohort.
The enrichment provision features a variety of options, including lacrosse, orchestra, badminton, choir, football and drama. Tramby also offers a golf programme and works closely with Hull Golf Club, encouraging students’ participation in interschool competitions and fixtures as part of their non-academic involvement in school life. 
Rooted in a sense of security, Tranby’s community produces eloquent and confident young adults whose strong achievements help them identify their niche early on. The individual care received during their time at school allows them to mature at a high pace, facilitating the outward-looking attitude and cultural awareness they tend to manifest throughout their later lives.

To join in Year 7, your child will be asked to complete an online assessment called the ISEB Common Pretest, which assesses skills in Maths, English, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning. The test provides a universal and standardised measure of attainment, ability and potential.
11 Plus (11+) Exam Format | Tranby School
The ISEB Pretest assessment will cover the following areas:
- English – covers comprehension, sentence completion, spelling and punctuation.
- Maths – measures mathematical ability relative to the national curriculum stage.
- Verbal Reasoning – tests thinking and problem solving with words.
- Non-Verbal Reasoning – assesses thinking with shapes, space, diagrams and pictures.
In total, the four parts of the ISEB Common Pre-test take approximately 2.5 hours to administer and complete. There is no audio component to any of the tests.
11 Plus (11+) Practice Tests | Tranby School
At Pretest Plus, we believe that a little preparation can go a long way to improving a student’s confidence and performance in entrance examinations.
We thus provide online practice tests, video courses and skill specific tests which focus on helping students familiarise themselves with the exact types of questions that they will be asked in their ISEB Pretest assessment.
Online Practice Tests
These full mock tests are designed to provide your child with highly accurate practice ahead of their ISEB Pretest Assessment. Each practice test covers English, Maths, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning, replicating the modules, timings and question types used in the actual exam.
Each test contains unique content but they are all pitched at the same difficulty level as the actual assessment. This means you can easily benchmark your child’s progress as they work through the practice tests, quickly identifying their strengths and weaknesses.
