For more information about Loreto Grammar School’s admission process, please consult the school website.
Parents of students who wish to register their daughter to sit the entrance tests must do so with the school before the exam date. Once registration is open, the relevant form can be completed online via the school’s website. Parents must supply their daughter’s baptism certificate in order to complete the registration process. Late applications will not be considered.
Parents must include Loreto as a preferred choice on their Local Authority’s Common Application Form (CAF) in order for their daughter to be eligible for a Year 7 place at the school.
Prospective pupils to Loreto Grammar School must sit three tests at 11+:
Parents will be notified of the test results in October, which will indicate whether the student has attained the required score to be eligible for admission. However, place allocations will not be made public until March the following year and passing the 11 Plus exam isn’t a guarantee of entry to the school.
When it comes to the 11 Plus exam, regular practice is key. To give your daughter the best chance of performing well and gaining a place at Loreto, they should incorporate practice papers into their study. Regular exposure to these types of papers could increase your daughter’s chance of achieving the required score in the 11 Plus.
It’s important to identify gaps in your daughter’s knowledge quickly; the sooner you recognise where additional work is needed, the less chance there is of her feeling overworked as the exam date approaches. Allocate any additional time to these gaps via a study plan and focus on the best revision techniques that work for your daughter’s learning style.
Encourage your daughter to sit practice papers under timed conditions, as this will vastly improve her time management skills and get her used to answering all required questions within the timeframe.
