Yorkshire Grammar Schools 11 Plus Admissions

 

To be considered for a Year 7 place at a Yorkshire grammar school, pupils must pass the eleven plus exam. While some schools in the area are responsible for their own admissions, they must comply with the North Yorkshire Coordinated Scheme for secondary school admissions to Year 7.

 

The schools encourage prospective pupils and parents to attend an open evening during the academic year. Usually at these events, school staff will provide additional information about the admissions process and visitors will have the opportunity to tour the school and meet staff members.

 

How to Register for the Yorkshire Grammar Schools 11 Plus Exam

 

Year 7 admission to any of the Yorkshire grammar schools is based on the results of an 11 Plus exam entrance test. To enter for this exam, parents must register their child with their local authority (LA) before the closing date. Parents must also complete a Supplementary Information Form via the preferred school’s website.

 

Please note, late applications will only be considered once the initial round of allocations has been completed.
