11+ Vocabulary List

A free 11+ Vocabulary List for children aged 10-11 prepare for their 11+ Grammar School Entrance Exams.

11+ Vocabulary List

One of the key components of all 11+ entrance exams is vocabulary. Children need to demonstrate a wide range of vocabulary in their writing and verbal reasoning if they want to pass their 11+ tests.

Both GL and CEM expect children to demonstrate a strong vocabulary by using (or showing an understanding of) a wide range of difficult words.

Below is our free 11+ Vocabulary List, an enormous list of over 1,800 11+ words to help your child prepare. This list complies with both GL and CEM exam boards and includes hundreds of challenging words.

This is easily the most comprehensive 11+ vocabulary list available. Within it are a wide range of difficult words to help boost your child's vocabulary. You can read and use it online or download it as a PDF to print at home.

Our advice is to carefully work through these words and ensure children can explain their meaning and craft an example sentence before attempting to use them in practice papers.
