Year 7 places for Medway grammar schools are determined by pupil performance in the eleven plus exam. Prior to applying for a place, parents are advised to attend their preferred schools’ open event to get more information about the admissions process.
Schools within the Medway local authority use different allocation criteria for Year 7 places, so parents are advised to confirm the criteria of their preferred school(s) directly before completing the Common Application Form (CAF).
To apply for a Year 7 place at any of the Medway grammar schools, parents must complete a Common Application Form (CAF), as administered by the Medway local authority. All primary schools within the Medway area will receive booklets entitled ‘Admission to Secondary School: A Guide for Parents’ to distribute, which explains more about the registration process.
Alternatively, parents can call the admissions team at Medway Council on 01634 331110 with any Year 7 application questions. Parents are advised to contact their local authority, rather than individual schools, with 11+ registration questions.
The eleven plus exam for Medway grammar schools test verbal reasoning, maths and English. Both the verbal reasoning and maths tests are multiple choice and last around 50 minutes each. The English test usually takes the form of an essay and lasts 50 minutes, which includes 10 minutes of planning time.
In previous years, the maths and English sections have been double-weighted, compared with verbal reasoning. This means that the maths and writing scores are given twice the importance of the verbal reasoning score.
At Exam Papers Plus, we would advise that students use 11+ practice papers under timed conditions so that they are used to answering questions quickly and under pressure.
