Warwickshire Grammar Schools 11 Plus Admissions

 

All Year 7 places in Warwickshire grammar schools are allocated based on pupil performance in the 11+ exam. Parents are advised to attend their preferred schools’ open day(s), which usually take place in June, before applying for a place. At these events, parents can learn more about the admissions process and prospective pupils can take a tour of the school.

 

Year 7 admissions to Warwickshire grammar schools are coordinated by Warwickshire County Council and parents must register online ahead of their child’s 11+ exam date in September.

 

How to Register for the Warwickshire Grammar Schools 11 Plus Exam

 

Warwickshire County Council’s Admissions Service, known as Warwickshire Admissions, oversees 11 Plus entry to all grammar schools in the region. This service operates the same entrance test procedure as the Grammar Schools in the Birmingham Consortium. To apply for entry to a school in Year 7, parents must register their child for the entrance examination by completing the Common Application Form (CAF).

 

The deadline for registration is usually in July and the form needs to be handed in to the local authority. Please note that schools in the region will not consider late registrations in the first round of placements.

 

Warwickshire Grammar Schools 11 Plus Exam Format

 

All five schools within the Warwickshire Consortium use the same test papers, which test children’s skills in:

 

  • English Comprehension
  • Verbal Reasoning
  • Mathematics
  • Non-Verbal + Spatial Reasoning

 

The English Comprehension paper examines comprehension skills, including inference. There will be no writing component.

 

The Verbal Reasoning section of the exam assesses logical thinking, use of English language and vocabulary.

 

The maths paper measures problem-solving abilities and arithmetic skills, including questions on number, measurement, geometry, algebra and statistics.

 

The exam will also cover Non-Verbal Reasoning or Spatial Reasoning, both testing logic and intelligence.

 

Warwickshire 11 Plus (11+) Exam Pass Marks and Target Scores

 

The schools do not provide information about raw scores, except that they will be age-standardised, ensuring that each student is assessed fairly.

 

Pupils who are able to score 80-85% consistently in our 11+ practice tests should be on track to pass the 11+ Warwickshire test. 

 

Whilst there are no guarantees, this has historically been a fairly strong indicator that your child should do well in the Warwickshire 11+ exam.

 

Passing the test does not guarantee that your child will be offered a place. It simply means they have surpassed the required threshold. As such, it makes sense to aim for as high a score as possible.

 

Don’t worry if your child is not scoring well in our practice papers from the outset. With targeted practice and focus, it’s possible to make big improvements in a short amount of time!
