Hi there, does anyone know the process entailed with the 12+ in Kent? Any info greatfully received as I know nothing on this subject!
Is it even offered in Kent? Is it down to the individual school to decide?
Many thanks

The 12+ and 13+ are offered in Kent but it depends on the school. For boys in the West Kent area, TWGSB accept students, but only if they have spaces.

thanks cup cake, when it comes to taking the 12+ do you approach your childs current school and ask permission?? and its taken there? As opposed to taking it independently?
Also, sorry lots of questions!! Is it taken around the same time as the 11+ in Kent?

You have the right to apply to any school once in each academic year. If it is a grammar school and does not offer to assess your child through some form of test, it must turn you down and you then have the right of appeal. As part of that process the school must then test the child.

Therefore by definition, for grammar schools there is an eleven plus, a twelve plus and a thirteen plus. Of course, none of this is helpful if the school is full in the first place! Technically the application is for admission in the following September, although some schools do not wait if the child is successful. Some schools save up testing until there are several candidates or wait until the summer term. Others test as applications come in.

You do not need permission from your child's current school, although the grammar school may approach them for evidence of the child's ability (its arguable whether they are entitled).
