Year 7 Admissions 2023

School Information

September 2023 Entry 

The Slough Consortium of Grammar Schools consists of Herschel Grammar School, Langley Grammar School, St Bernard’s Catholic Grammar School and Upton Court Grammar School. We operate a shared 11+ entrance examination process using the same examination papers and common eligibility criteria. 

Boys and girls are eligible to be considered for admission to Herschel Grammar School in Year 7 if they meet the required standard in the Slough Consortium 11+ examination. The 11+ entrance examinations are designed to identify pupils with the ability and aptitude for a grammar school education.
