All Year 7 places across the grammar schools in Gloucestershire are determined by pupil performance in the 11+ exam. Each school hosts various open events throughout the academic year, which are open to both parents and prospective pupils. More information about the admissions process is provided at these events and students will have the opportunity to take a tour around the school campus as well as meet with staff and current pupils.
All admissions to Gloucestershire grammar schools in Year 7 are coordinated by Gloucestershire County Council. For children to be considered for a grammar school place, parents must register online ahead of their child’s 11 Plus exam date in September.
To apply for a Year 7 place at a Gloucestershire grammar school, parents must register their child with the Local Authority, Gloucestershire County Council. Next, parents should complete a Common Application Form (CAF) before October, which can be done online via the Council’s website.
All grammar schools in the region use the same 11+ exam from CEM (University of Durham). The test consists of two multiple choice papers containing questions related to verbal reasoning, non-verbal reasoning and numerical reasoning.
Each exam takes around an hour to complete, which includes reading the instructions and completing some worked examples at the beginning. The tests themselves are around 45 to 50 minutes. Both tests are taken on the same day and there is a 20-minute break between the papers.
Results will be available for parents in October, with notification of final Year 7 place allocations published in March.
Practice exam papers are an effective tool to help prepare successfully for the Gloucestershire 11 Plus. We would highly recommend the resources below for students taking the exam in the near future:
