Admission Procedures

Year 7 (11+ entry)

Application is made by completing the Registration Form (click here).  Families are welcome to visit the School on our Open Evening which for 2017 is on Thursday 29 June 2017, 18:00-20:30.

All admissions are subject to an Entrance Examination (the 11+), which is held early in September, for entry in the following September.  The Entrance Examination involves a verbal reasoning test and a non-verbal & spatial reasoning test, held on adjacent Saturday mornings at the School.  The tests are agreed by the consortium of Lincolnshire Grammar Schools

More information on the tests and and a timeline for admission in September 2018 can be found here.

For those who will be starting in September 2017 a reminder of your timeline can be found here.

The Governing Body has agreed a Planned Admission Number of 240 students, which reflects the current capacity of the School.  Should the number of students who meet the selection criterion (a minimum score 220 over the two tests) exceed 240, places will be allocated in accordance with the School's Admissions Policy.  Please see below for the 2017 and 2018 policies.

Parents need to be aware that, for the purpose of admissions, the School takes as the home address the place of residence where the pupil lives for the majority of the school term time with a parent who has parental responsibility as defined in the Children Act 1989.   You should contact the School (01778 422288) if you require further information or clarification on how this policy operates.
