Gloucestershire 11 Plus
There are seven grammar schools in Gloucestershire. All the schools use the same testing process. Parents need to fill in the Common Application Form and a test registration form available from the school. Failure to complete the Local Authority’s form means the child cannot be offered a place, even if achieves a qualifying score.
It possible for parents applying to Pate’s school to sit the test at another local grammar school. Parents must notify the school they are applying to of their preference in such a case.
Children are not normally able to sit the test at other UK locations; parents may make an application to Pate’s in such a case, the decision will be made at the discretion of the school.
Pate’s school allow applicants living outside the UK to sit the test at the child’s current school in certain circumstances. Parents should apply in the normal way, i.e. apply to the LA and the school and contact the school directly to discuss these arrangements.
Stroud High school accepts underage children provided: they are in Year 5 and are following a year 6 curriculum, there is a letter of support from the primary school and their score in the test is in the top 50% of applicants. If the score is not in the top 50%; that score may be carried forward and be considered for entry the following year.
