Hi amazing, i know what the lack of sleep is like!! We are now in acceptance after big disappointment. DD o.k. now and is very happy with the school she is going to. Not heard of 12+ entry to consortium schools. Is that something that is possible at the other schools e.g. Chelmsford & Colchester. Does anybody out there know?
There is not really a 12+ as such in the same sense as the 11+.
This 12 + refers to the occasional vacancies that occur throughout the years.I have two daughters at Chelm CCHS and the current year 9 has had 4 vacancies since yr 7 and the current year 7 has, I believe, one likely soon.
You have to get yourself on the waiting list and the school will contact you re any vacancies.Your child will then go and sit an exam with the others.I know someone who did this in year 8 for KEGs and the test then included modern languages and science as well as the usual VR, maths and English.There was one vacancy and about 30 boys took the exam.
Hope that info helps a bit.
