Brighton College 11 plus (11+) Entrance Exam Information – Key Details

Introduction

 

This claim by the headmaster of Brighton College, Richard Cairns is admirable and ambitious:

 

‘Every child at Brighton College is valued for his or her own sake, encouraged to develop his or her talents to the full in a community where there are no stereotypes and where every achievement, however small, is noticed.’

 

It is a forward-thinking school, where academic achievement, independent thinking and curiosity is fostered and encouraged. In the College for example, a ‘trouser uniform’ and a ‘skirt uniform’ are available to all pupils regardless of sex, but they must stick to a consistent choice.

Admissions Process for Brighton College Eleven Plus (11+) for Year 7 entry

  

Open Days

 

On making an enquiry, the school will take your details and invite you to an open morning and taster day. Taster days are fun, informal days for families interested in joining Brighton College. They offer a chance for children to get to know staff and other pupils.

 

You must book an open morning and can do so by completing an online form available on the school’s website.

 

Alternatively, you might like to arrange an individual visit to tour the College (with a College prefect) and meet the Headmaster of the Lower School. Families are advised to book a tour well in advance.

 

Registration

 

Once you have visited you can then register. Once your child is registered, this means you have officially expressed an interest in joining the College, and will then be invited to attend the Assessment Day.

 

Entrance Exams

 

All pupils sit papers in maths (multiple-choice), English comprehension (multiple-choice), and English comprehension (with written answers and a creative writing piece), alongside a Non-Verbal and Verbal reasoning test.

 

All children are automatically assessed for an Academic Scholarship through the papers they sit on the Assessment Day. There is an opportunity to apply for an All-Rounder Scholarship, through assessment in art, dance, drama, music, sport, or a combination of these elements. The College also offers a Chess Scholarship to pupils who are able to show exceptional potential.

 

Interviews

 

There is a short interview involved.

Why do some of the recommendations above show me grammar school papers?

 

The main difference between independent and grammar school papers is the question format. Independent schools usually assess with standard format questions, which means students need to write out full answers. Grammar schools usually use multiple-choice format questions.

 

Whilst Brighton College is an independent school, they actually use the grammar school (multiple-choice) format for some of their exams, which is why they are included in the recommendations above.

 

 

Our practice tests aim to show what sort of questions were included in Brighton College 11+ past papers. The information provided about Brighton College was believed to be correct at the time of publishing. However, please be aware of future changes. We advise you to contact the school directly if you are unsure of anything. School contact details are provided within the post.
