To register a student for the 11 Plus exam at Westcliff High School for Girls, parents need to complete the CSSE Supplementary Information Form (SIF). The form can be completed online on the CSSE website.
In addition, parents applying for a selective place for their daughter must complete the Consortium of Selective Schools in Essex (CSSE) application. Further details on the process are available at www.csse.org.uk.
The selective test is taken in September and results are sent to parents in October. Registration for the selective test begins early in May, when girls are in Year 5.
Entry to Westcliff High School for Girls is determined by student performance in two tests that cover English and Maths. The English paper features questions on comprehension, grammar and vocabulary, as well as creative writing, verbal reasoning and literacy.
The Maths paper tests students on topics contained within the KS2 National Curriculum.
Test scores are age-standardised, which ensures that older pupils don’t have an unfair advantage.
Being organised is key to preparing for the 11 Plus exam. To improve a student’s knowledge, we’d recommend that parents help their child create a study timetable that outlines the topics that need to be covered. In addition, practice exam papers can help improve their exam technique and boost their confidence.
At Exam Papers Plus, we publish 11 Plus practice tests that help familiarise students with the types of questions they may be asked on the day. When taken under timed exam conditions, our practice papers can also help improve time management skills.
