For secondary school entry in September 2021

On-time registration for the 2021 entry 11+ test is now closed. However, if you have not done so already, you can still register your child as a late candidate and they will be invited to attend a testing session after 1 March 2021. Please contact the Admissions team for further information about late testing: [email protected]

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, our 11+ test for 2021 entry has been postponed. If you have registered in time (before 29 June 2020), the test will be on 7 or 8 November 2020. These dates may change as coronavirus guidance and restrictions change.

Parents/carers will be sent further information updates as these become available. We advise that you regularly check your email inbox (including spam and junk folders) for any up-to-date information that is sent through.

For entry during the 2020/21 academic year

Year 7

For children who start secondary school in September 2020, the local authority may still be able to arrange for them to sit the 11+ test. This is only possible for children who are still under the age of 12 and have never sat the Warwickshire 11+ test. To register your child for a testing session, please email us to request a registration form: [email protected]. Testing usually takes place once a month at the council offices in Warwick.

Sitting the 11+ test is not an application for a Warwickshire grammar school. Please contact your home authority to find out more about their in-year application process.

All 11+ testing administered by Warwickshire County Council is currently suspended, in light of global circumstances. We do not expect any testing sessions to take place before November 2020. You can still register your child to sit the 11+ test, however, your registration (as well as any application you make for Warwickshire grammar schools) will be put on hold until further notice.

Children aged 12 or over

For children who are 12 or over, you will need to contact the grammar schools you are interested in applying for in order to register your interest for your child to be tested by them. They will need to sit an internal selection test with each grammar school they are interested in, and their results will be compared to those of the year group they intend to join in order to assess their academic suitability for a place.

Sitting a selection test with one (or more) of the grammar schools is not an application for a Warwickshire grammar school. Please contact your home authority to find out more about their in-year application process.
