11+ grammar school test

If your child is due to transfer to secondary school in September 2018 and you would like them to be considered for a place at one, or more, of Warwickshire’s six grammar schools, then you will need to register your child so they can sit the Warwickshire 11+ test.


Before you can apply for a grammar school place, you will need to register for the 11+ test.

Test date

The main test date is scheduled for Saturday 09 September 2017. There is an expectation that the majority of candidates will be tested on this day.

Deadline to register

The deadline to register your child for the 11+ test is Friday 07 July 2017. You can still register your child for the 11+ test after this date but you will not be able to do this online and any application which you make for a grammar school will be classed as late.

Special Educational Needs / Medical Issues

If your child has specific special educational needs, a statement of special needs, an Education, Health and Care Plan, or specific medical issues which could prohibit them from accessing the 11+ test in its paper form, then you must register your child for the 11+ test using a paper-based registration form, which requires supplementary information and evidence to be submitted as part of the registration process. The deadline to submit these registration forms will be Wednesday 14 June 2017. If the registration is received after this date then your child’s needs may not be assessed and any application you make for a grammar school may be classed as late.

The 11+ test

The 11+ test is designed to reflect a child’s academic potential. The results from the test are then used to allocate places at Warwickshire grammar schools. You only need to register your child for the 11+ test if you wish to apply for a place at one or more of Warwickshire’s grammar schools. Only those children who score within a specific ability range for each grammar school will be considered for a place.

The test consists of two separate booklets, each containing a mixture of Verbal Reasoning, Numeracy and Non-Verbal Reasoning questions.

Each booklet contains approximately 50 minutes of questions and is administered over about an hour.

Although the test questions will be presented in a booklet, children will need to mark their answers on a separate answer sheet.
