Sutton Grammar School is part of Sutton’s Coordinated Admissions Scheme and, as such, admission to the school is determined by pupil performance in the Selective Eligibility Test (SET), similar to the standard 11 Plus exam. Competition for the 150 places available in Year 7 is very high, so the school encourages prospective students and their parents to attend one of their open events, which usually take place in September. At these events, you can learn more about the admissions process and have an opportunity to tour the school and speak to staff.
In the likely event of Sutton Grammar School being oversubscribed in Year 7, the school applies these policies, in this priority order:
Sutton Grammar School adheres to a strict admission policy in Year 7, so parents are advised to read the policy before applying for a place.
Parents who wish to register their son to sit the SET (part one) must complete a Supplementary Form, which can be found on the school’s website when registration is open. Sutton Grammar School is part of the Pan-London Co-ordinated Admissions Scheme. To apply for a place at the school, parents must complete the Common Application Form (CAF) issued by their Local Authority. Those who live in London, or Surrey, can complete the CAF online.
If students are successful in the SET, they will be invited to sit Sutton Grammar’s Second Stage Entrance Examination. Should they pass this test, parents must include Sutton Grammar on the CAF for pupils to be eligible for consideration for a Year 7 place.
In recent years, Sutton Grammar School’s eleven plus tests have been split into two stages:
This SET is run in conjunction with other local schools in Sutton. The result of the SET determines whether or not a boy is eligible for the second stage test.
The five selective grammar schools in Sutton are particularly cautious when it comes to revealing information about their selection examinations. Because of this, and the extensive competition for places in Year 7, both children and parents can experience anxiety and stress ahead of the tests.
However, with the help of Exam Papers Plus, parents can give their son the best possible chance of securing a Year 7 place at Sutton Grammar School. By creating a revision plan early and introducing online practice papers, parents can identify any weaker areas that require additional work before the exam.
Sutton Grammar School has reported that there are over 10 applications for each Year 7 place, so for students to get ahead of the competition, we would recommend using the following practice tests, which have been specifically designed to help students prepare for the Selective Eligibility Test:
