Surrey Grammar Schools 11 Plus Admissions

 

All Sutton grammar schools use the Selective Eligibility Test (SET) to determine Year 7 place allocation. For some of the Sutton schools, the SET is the first stage in a two-step assessment process. The Kingston-upon-Thames grammar schools also use a two-stage entrance exam process to allocate places. As Surrey is one of the most competitive grammar school areas in the country, parents are always encouraged to visit their preferred school(s) ahead of applying for a Year 7 place.

 

All of Surrey’s Year 7 places are allocated via local authorities, whether that’s Sutton Council or Kingston Upon Thames. Parents should confirm their local authority (LA) and check more detailed admission criteria via their LA’s website.

 

 

How to Register for the Surrey Grammar Schools 11 Plus Exam

 

For Sutton grammar schools, parents can visit Sutton Council’s website, which provides direct links to the schools in the area, their admissions policies and how to register to take the SET.

 

For Kingston Schools, parents must complete a Supplementary Information Form (SIF), which is available on each of the school’s websites. Parents can also visit Kingston Upon Thames’s LA website for more details.

 

Surrey Grammar Schools 11 Plus Exam Format

 

The SET, used by all Sutton schools, consists of two multiple-choice tests that last 40-45 minutes each and focus on mathematics and English. Students who achieve the required standard at stage one will be asked, at some schools, to sit an extended English writing task for stage two.

 

Both the Kingston-Upon-Thames schools have a two-stage process that test students’ English skills and mathematical knowledge. The first round at both schools is multiple-choice. The second round is open-anser can involve written tasks such as story writing and mathematical problem solving.

 

Parents will receive the results of their child’s entrance exam online in October, and final Year 7 place allocations will be published in March.
