Grammar Schools in London and the South East

11 Plus and Grammar Schools

The Grammar Schools listed below all have selective entry. This is based on the student doing a number of exams. The exams that the student will sit will be a combination of one or more of the following, Maths, English, Verbal And Non Verbal reasoning. Students who want to go into Grammar schools will sit a combination of these exams. They will not necessarily sit all of them. The parent should contact the grammer school that they are looking at to find out what exams the child will sit for that school. The exams for most Grammar schools take place in January the academic year before the student is to join the school. The canidate must be registered with the school to be eligible to take these exams. This is usually by October prior to the exam at the latest. It is strongly recommended that the deadline for regisration is confirmed with the school well before this date.
