11+ Information Online Event for September 2024 entry to Year 7
Tuesday 25th April 2023 at 5:00pm and 6:15pm
During this online event, we will explain the Slough Consortium 11+ entrance examination process in detail. This event is for parents only. It is not suitable for children, and it does not provide specific details about any particular school. It is purely to help you as parents to understand the 11+ registration and testing process and will last for a maximum of one hour (there will be two identical events offered at 5:00 pm and 6:15 pm, to provide the opportunity for as many parents as possible to access the information).
The event will be on Tuesday 25th April using Zoom and you must reserve a spot to attend. The first part will be a live presentation by John Constable, Headteacher of Langley Grammar School on the 11+ process. This will be followed by a question and answer session via the chat function with the Headteachers of all four grammar schools.
Following the event, a ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ document will be produced and posted on the schools’ websites along with a recording of the presentation.
Please register for a ticket here or at the link below and you will be sent joining instructions for the online meeting. Please only register for ONE of the meetings.
11+ test provider from September 2023
The Slough Consortium of Grammar Schools has contracted with GL Assessment as the test provider for the 11+ examinations to be held in September 2023, 2024 and 2025.
The structure and format of the examinations from September 2023 are similar to those used under the previous provider. Pupils will sit two test papers, with questions covering a combination of verbal and non-verbal reasoning, English and mathematics. All marking and standardisation will be carried out by the test provider.
The eligibility score will remain at 111 on a standardised scale. Pupils who score 111 or above will be in the top 35% of the cohort sitting the examination and will be considered eligible for consideration for a grammar school place should their parents apply on their behalf.
The Slough Consortium has its own contract with GL Assessment and there will be no sharing of 11+ scores with any other schools.
Parents are advised to read the information about the 11+ examination process which will be posted on the websites of each of the four grammar schools later this term, and should not rely on other sources which may not be accurate.
