Berkshire 11 Plus
The New Schools Admissions Code, by law from 2012 , due to take effect for admissions for Entry in September 2013, states that schools must take all reasonable steps to inform parents of the outcome of tests before the closing deadline for applications on October 31st 2012.
There are six grammar schools remaining in Berkshire, and one “bilateral” school, Reading Girls’ School. Two of the grammar schools are in Reading (Reading Grammar and Kendrick School) and the remaining four are in Slough.
The four schools in Slough – Slough Grammar, Langley, Herschel and St. Bernard’s Catholic Grammar School – operate a consortium for Admissions.
Considerable care must be taken to ensure that all the required forms are submitted in time to meet the various deadlines. In researching this page a number of different dates were found for submitting not only the schools’ own application forms, but also the Common Application Form.
