St Michael’s catholic education is fully supported by the families whose children attend the school. All applicants are expected to give their full commitment to the school’s aims and values.
Each year, St Michael’s admits 96 students into Year 7. Only girls who demonstrate the necessary academic ability and whose parents wish for them to attend a catholic school will be admitted. St Michael’s is always oversubscribed, and therefore gives priority to students from a practising catholic family who have made their First Holy Communion.
If two or more applicants have equal ranking, priority is given to Looked After or previously Looked After children, followed by students who live closest to the school.
In order to apply for a Year 7 place at St Michael’s Catholic Grammar School, parents need to complete the school’s online registration form. A Common Application Form should also be completed and returned to the Local Authority before the deadline date.
A Supplementary Information Form should also be completed. Parents are also asked to write to the school, providing reasons and evidence of why their child would be a good fit.
Additionally, parents are required to complete a Certificate of Catholic Practice form (CCP), previously known as a ‘Priest’s Reference’.
The St Michael’s 11 Plus exam is administered by GL Assessment. All applicants are required to take the following 4 test papers:
Places are allocated based on performance in the entrance test with the highest scoring students given priority. In instances of a tie break, students’ scores in the verbal reasoning test are given precedence over scores in the non-verbal reasoning test.
At Exam Papers Plus, we believe that a little preparation can go a long way towards improving a student’s exam confidence. We recommend that students preparing for competitive entry tests like the St Michaels’ 11 Plus exam should work from a study schedule.
Parents can help their children by outlining the topics that need to be studied and allocating specific time periods for reviewing each one. The sooner students start preparing for the exam, the more time they’ll have to improve any weaker areas.
In addition to working from a study schedule, 11 Plus practice papers can help improve a student’s exam technique. We specialise in producing practice tests for competitive entry exams like the St Michael’s entrance assessment. Our tests are designed to help students become familiar with the types of questions they may be asked on exam day.
We’d recommend that students take our practice tests under timed exam conditions in order to improve their time management skills as well as their exam technique. Students preparing for the St Michael’s Catholic Grammar School 11 Plus exam will find the following resources particularly useful:
