Brighton Girls 11 Plus (11+) Admissions


The first step of the admissions process involves registration. You should complete and submit the online application form so that your daughter can be invited to taster events and considered for the entrance examinations. A copy of her birth certificate and passport should also be provided. 


The assessment day for Year 7 entry, including written papers, takes place in December of the year preceding entry. Prior to the exams, your daughter will attend an interview with a senior staff member. Places are offered in early February, to be accepted by the deadline in early March.


Brighton Girls 11 Plus (11+) Scholarships and Bursaries


Top-performing candidates in the entrance exams will be automatically considered for an Academic Scholarship. The school also offers Temple Scholarships, recognising achievement and enthusiasm in the areas of art, drama, dance, sport, music or other activity. For details on how and when to apply, please follow this link.


Bursaries are awarded to girls coming from low-income families. They are reviewed annually and take into account changes in your income and circumstances. Your daughter’s academic performance in the entrance examinations is one of the key factors when determining whether or not she will be awarded a bursary.


Higher-value bursaries are typically awarded to families with a total income of less than £37,500 per year who have no capital assets other than their home. If your annual income is greater than £87,500, it is highly unlikely that your child will be awarded a bursary.


Brighton Girls 11 Plus (11+) Exam Format


The Brighton Girls 11+ entrance examination consists of the following papers:


  • English (comprehension and writing)
  • Mathematics (problem-solving and arithmetic)
  • Reasoning (Verbal and Non-Verbal)


The English paper examines both comprehension and writing skills, including inference, spelling, vocabulary and punctuation. Marks will be awarded for good use of imagination, creativity, form, purpose, organisation, cohesion and sentence structure.


The maths exam assesses your daughter’s problem-solving abilities and arithmetic skills. The paper may include questions on number, measurement, geometry, algebra and statistics.


The Verbal Reasoning paper is primarily designed to test and assess her logical thinking, use of English language and vocabulary.


The Non-Verbal Reasoning paper measures her ability to understand, interpret and problem-solve, testing logic and intelligence rather than knowledge.
