Hi there

This is off-topic, and not about 11+. However, does anyone know about the format of the paper for the Bilton Grange Scholarship Exam, for entry to Year 3? Any info on format (VR, Eng, Maths, NVR, etc) much appreciated, as well as an indication of how competitive the exam is.

Have not had a particularly useful reply as yet. She will ask her daughter to see if she remembers. Not looking particularly good. Sorry.

Could you 'phone the school?

Hi there

I have asked this before in my posting, in July, but does anyone know the format of the scholarship paper for Bilton Grange (year 3 entrance)?

At the risk of stating the obvious, surely you could contact or even visit the school.

I'm sure if someone on here was able to answer your question they would have posted a reply.

Seems strange to remain in-the-dark since July!

At the risk of sounding even more obvious, I did ask the school; and they did not elaborate. Forlorn as it is, I still thought I would try here, again!!!!

However, I will practise Eng, Maths, VR and NVR with my DS. Upon taking the exam in Feb, I will feedback to the forum - in the hope that it will help someone else, in the future.

Optimist,
Sorry to learn that the school are not being helpful. If I were in your position I would seriously consider if I wanted my children to attend such a place.
Can't imagine how I would start to prep a 6/7 year old for these subjects but I hope it works out.

Good morning.

The Scholarships are offered to boys and girls whose date of birth is between 1st September 1998 and 31st August 2002 (ie competitive entry at age 7 to 11).

Children with academic potential are encouraged to apply. Artistic, musical, design, expertise with computers or sporting talent will be taken into account.

The tests and interviews will take place at Bilton Grange on Saturday, 6th February 2010. The day begins at 9:30 a.m.

Children undertake test papers in Maths, English and a general paper. There will also be a reading test, after which the children will be given a tour of the school. Interviews and auditions may also take place during this time. The Headmaster will ask for a report from the child's present school.

Application forms can be obtained from;

Mr Jonathan Hewat
Bilton Grange School,
Dunchurch,
Nr Rugby,
Warwickshire.
