11 Plus Schools

Surrey 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.

The term “Surrey” is a misnomer, because none of the grammar schools commonly referred to as being in Surrey are administered by Surrey County Council. However “Surrey” is used as an umbrella term for the grammar schools in the London Boroughs of Kingston-upon-Thames and Sutton.

The Surrey grammar schools are among the most fiercely competitive for entry in the country, with as many as ten applicants for each school place.

Kingston-upon Thames Grammar Schools

The two grammar schools administered by Kingston LEA are Tiffin Girls’ School and Tiffin School (Boys).

There are 5 fully selective Grammar Schools in Sutton. Last year, Wallington County Grammar and Wilson schools joined Sutton Grammar School in their admissions procedure and now they all share the same two stage testing process. Greenshaw High School, a partially selective school is also a part of this group; however they only have one stage testing and will not have a second test. All four schools will use the same Selective Eligibility Test. The 1st test will be on the same date. For the 2nd stage, Sutton Grammar school, Wallington County Grammar and Wilsons will each have its own date set.

Parents have to fill in a Supplementary Form to sit the Selective Eligibility Test(1st stage) which can be downloaded from any of the schools’ websites. Only one form needs to be filled in even if you are applying to more than one of the schools.

Each school will be administering the 1st test on the same day at the same time. Applicants will be allocated a venue that is nearest to them. All girls will sit the test at Greenshaw High School. It is not possible to request a venue.
