Hertfordshire grammar schools in Barnet and Enfield use different assessment providers but nevertheless, all Year 7 places are determined by pupil performance in the 11+ exams.
Each grammar school in the area is significantly oversubscribed and so parents are encouraged to attend their preferred schools’ open events ahead of applying for a place.
Parents must apply to their local authority (LA) ahead of the eleven plus exam date. For students in Barnet, parents can apply directly to Barnet Local Authority, while those in Enfield should apply to Enfield Council only.
To apply for a place in Year 7 at either a Barnet or Enfield grammar school, parents must register their child with their LA. Both LAs require parents to complete both a Common Application Form (CAF) and an entrance test entry form for their preferred school. Both forms can be completed online and must be sent on time, as late applications are not accepted.
As stated above, Barnet and Enfield grammar schools use different eleven plus exams. Below we have outlined the test format used by each school:
This test consists of two rounds, with the first-round testing verbal reasoning, non-verbal reasoning and english. The top 300 students from round one will be invited back to sit the second exam.
This second test consists of English (comprehension and creative writing) and problem-solving maths questions.
The eleven plus entrance exam at Queen Elizabeth’s Barnet consists of two multiple choice test papers, covering English and mathematics. Both papers are taken by candidates in the same session.
This 11+ test consists of two tests;
Test 1 is a multiple-choice mathematics and verbal reasoning test that last 50 minutes.
Test 2 is an open-answer English test. Overall, this test lasts one hour and is split into two sections that test reading comprehension and creative writing.
