Admissions

Thinking of joining us…

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 2020 or click here)

Our Year 7 Admissions are coordinated by Warwickshire County Council (Warwickshire Admissions) on behalf of the school. If your daughter was born between 1st September 2008 and 31st August 2009, you may apply for her to sit the test for entry in September 2020. Candidates may sit the Entrance Test once only.

To find out more about admissions or registering for the 11+, including how to register your daughter, please visit Warwickshire County Council's website or contact the Schools Admission Service on admissions@warwickshire.gov.uk or telephone 01926 742037 / 01926 74204

Information and Important Dates for Parents and Carers

During the summer term of 2019 parents/carers of all the children in Year 5 in Warwickshire primary/ junior schools will be issued with a leaflet, relevant to their area, about the process of selection. Parents/carers will be asked to register if they want their child to be tested. Parent/carers of children not attending those schools can contact the Warwickshire Admissions to request that information or visit the Warwickshire Admissions website from Tuesday 7th May 2019.

Parents/carers whose children have a disability and/or require special resources to sit the Entrance Test must complete a supplementary form as well as a registrations form and submit these to Warwickshire Admissions or the Grammar Schools in Birmingham (depending with whom you are registering for the Entrance Test) by Wednesday 12th June 2019.

The closing date for registering for selection tests for all the selective schools in Warwickshire is Friday 28th June 2019. Registration after that date will be considered as late. An exception will be made for parent/carers who can provide evidence of a move of address into the priority circle by Tuesday 31st December 2019. Late registrations will only be considered after the first round of offers and may not be tested before the National Offer Day.

The main testing session will take place on the morning of Saturday 7th September and Sunday 8th September 2019.

Applications will be made on the home authority’s Common Application Form as part of the co-ordinated process with neighbouring authorities. As set out in the Schools Admissions Code (2014), Thursday 31st October 2019 is the national closing date for secondary applications. Applications received after this date will be considered late and will be given a lower priority for places. An exception will be made for children moving into the priority circle where independent evidence can be provided by Tuesday 31st December 2019.

From Monday 14th October 2019, parents/carers will be notified by post of their child’s score in the Entrance Test.

The available places will be offered in accordance with the admission criteria in the first round of offers – on National Offer Day, which is Monday 2nd March 2020.

The Test

There will be two papers, each of approximately 50 minutes. The papers will be divided into smaller, individually timed sections, which test verbal ability, numerical ability and non-verbal ability.

For each paper, the children will be given a question booklet which contains the test questions and a separate answer sheet to mark their answers. The answer sheets will be processed electronically and scanned to make a record of each child’s answers.

A familiarisation booklet, containing information about the format of the test and some example questions, is available on the Warwickshire County Council website and in paper form on request (www.warwickshire.gov.uk/elevenplus). This will allow children to become familiar with the type of questions likely to be asked and the format of the test booklet and answer sheet, and information about how to write their answers on the answer sheet.

Transport

It is strongly recommended that parents/applicants establish the cost and availability of transport to the School if it is intended to use a bus or train service (public or otherwise), before application is made for admission. Further information on Warwickshire transport policy and application process can be found on the Warwickshire County Council website.
