11+ tests for Torbay

Information guide and timeline for selective grammar schools in Torbay

In Torbay there is a selective grammar school system; if parents wish for their child to apply for a selective school, they can take the 11+ test.

 

Children in Torbay can sit the test at any of the selective schools in Torbay, whilst also applying for a place at another Torbay selective school. The tests are all sat at the same time at each school and the individual schools will liaise with each other to share the relevant information so that they can assess the application in accordance with their own admissions policy.

 

Children born between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013 will start secondary school in September 2024.

 

The dates each year will run on a similar time frame and will be updated here for each coming year. We have included our dates for Mocks & Bootcamps so you can see the whole year!

What happens after my child sits the 11+ Entrance Test?

 

In mid-October parents will be sent a letter, informing you of the test outcome. This will show as a YES or NO next to each selective school in Torbay.

 

Once you have these results you must then apply for a secondary school using the Common Application Form online. You can choose up to 3 schools (and you can choose more than 1 selective school) in order of preference.
