Year 7 admission to Sir Roger Manwood’s School is determined by student performance in the Kent 11 Plus Test. To be considered for one of the 150 places available, prospective pupils must achieve the required standard.

At these events, school staff will be on hand to answer any questions parents might have regarding the admissions process and parents will have the opportunity to tour the school.
In 2016, Sir Roger Manwood’s School made a few changes to its admissions process. Whether your child is set to be a day pupil or boarder, you are advised to read this document before registering your child for the eleven plus test, as it discusses the school’s oversubscription criteria and explains how boarding and day places are allocated.
Parents who wish to register their child for the 11+ test must do so before the exam date. To register for the Kent Test, you must complete an online registration form via the local authority (LA), Kent County Council.
Once your child has sat the Kent Test at 11+, parents are required to complete the Secondary Common Application Form and submit it to their LA. This process can usually be done online. The LA will send assessment decisions to parents in October and offers will be sent out on National Offer Day in March the following year.

The majority of grammar schools in Kent use the Kent Test at 11 Plus and Sir Roger Manwood’s is among them. The Kent 11+ exam consists of two multiple-choice papers, each with a separate answer sheet, in the following format:
Kent is one of the most competitive grammar school areas in England, so for your child to succeed in the Kent eleven plus exam, they must be committed to investing additional time into learning and revising in the build-up to the test.
One piece of advice that we consistently share with parents is to encourage children to revise ‘little and often’. Children who approach their revision sessions in this manner are more likely to perform better in exams, compared with those who opt for longer sessions.
The Kent Test covers many different subject areas. Your child must be able to show their ability across all topics, so if they do have a weaker subject, use practice exam papers to highlight this early on in their revision. Our exam papers are an excellent way of monitoring your child’s progress week-to-week.
