As an academy Herschel Grammar School operates as its own admissions authority and collaborates in an 11+ testing consortium with Langley, St Bernard’s Catholic and Upton Court Grammar Schools for entry to Year 7.
Admission to any of the four grammar schools in Slough is based on reaching an eligibility score in the consortium 11+ examination. Any child reaching a score of 111 on a standardised scale is deemed potentially suitable for a grammar school place and is eligible for consideration for admission. However, each of the four schools have different criteria for admission in the event of over subscription.
Details of the admissions process for entry in September 2020 will appear here from 1 March 2019.
