Hi we live in an area that only has private grammar schools but we are very keen for ds1 to attend a grammar school rather than being stuck in one of the comprehensives that are local to us, but not living in an area that has grammars I'm, clueless as are the teachers at his school. He is in yr5 and in the yr6 G&T groups so have absolutely no doubt that he would pass the 11+.
How do we go about getting him to sit the 11+? What is the applicatio process for someone outside of an area?
Will he be able to do it at his school under supervision of one of his teachers or will he have to go to an area that sits the 11+ to do it?
Is the 11+ a standard exam across the entire country or is it different for every LEA?
We have family in 3 areas that have grammars plus the next county along have grammars so we have a few options but just no idea how to go about it.
Thanks very much for reading and I look forward to your responses.
