We are delighted that you are considering Stratford Girls' Grammar, one of the best state schools in the country and the top performing school in Warwickshire. To find out more, please join us at one of our Open Events.
Each year we take 120 students into Year 7. Admission to the School in Year 7 is determined by a child's performance in the Entrance Test (the 11+) and the School's oversubscription criteria. (For details of our oversubscription criteria please see the School’s Admissions Policy for 2023 or 2024 below).
Our Year 7 Admissions are coordinated by Warwickshire County Council, School Admissions on behalf of the school.
If your daughter was born between 1st September 2012 and 31st August 2013 you may register for her to sit the test for entry in September 2024 between 8th May 2023 and 30th June 2023.
Candidates may sit the Entrance Test once only.
Please refer to the appropriate Admissions Policy for information regarding your application for a Year 7 place. For any other query, prior to National Offer day on 1st March, please contact the Headteacher's PA by email on HeadsPA@sggs.org.uk
