11+ admissions process - September 2021 admission
Year 7 entry
As an academy Langley Grammar School operates as its own admissions authority and collaborates in a 11+ testing consortium with Herschel, St Bernard’s Catholic and Upton Court Grammar Schools for entry to Year 7.
Admission to any of the four grammar schools in Slough is based on reaching an eligibility score in the consortium 11+ examination. Any child reaching a score of 111 on a standardised scale (this score represents approximately the top third of the 11+ examination outcome range) is deemed potentially suitable for a grammar school place and is eligible for consideration for admission. However, each of the four schools have different criteria for admission in the event

Open mornings this term will not be possible due to the school closure. The open evening on Tuesday 22 September is now unlikely to go ahead. Further information will be added here as it becomes available.
11+ examination arrangements
A presentation setting out the process for the 11+ examination can be found on YouTube at https://youtu.be/FOEe1IG0Ky0. This presentation replaces the Information Evenings which were due to be held in late April/early May.
The admission test for entry into Year 7 in September 2021 for applicants sitting the tests at any of the four Slough grammar schools was originally scheduled for Saturday 12th September, for candidates who were registered before the closing date, 12 midnight on Sunday 14 June 2020.
The test will not now take place on this date and instead will take place in the week beginning Monday 12th October 2020. We cannot provide any further details at this stage other than to advise applicants to be prepared to be tested on any day of that week, and to confirm that the test will still take place at one of the four Slough grammar schools. We cannot accommodate any requests for specific testing days unless there are exceptional circumstances.
Testing day arrangements will be sent out by mid-September 2020. We ask that you do not contact the schools to request more information but to wait for your test day arrangements email.
The admissions code states that schools have to take ‘all reasonable steps’ for parents to receive the results before completing the Common Application Form (CAF). We are sure you will all agree that this year is exceptional. By delaying the test until October, you should be aware that you will not get the results of the entrance test until after the deadline for CAF completion. You will therefore need to make your choices very carefully; if you wish your child to be considered for entry to any of the four Slough grammar schools should he or she be considered eligible on the basis of the standardised score, you will need to name the relevant school or schools on the CAF.
IMPORTANT: Please note that the above dates could change if circumstances and/or government guidance require us to do so.
If you did not register by the deadline of Sunday 14 June and have requested a late testing registration form, your child will not be included in any testing session until Spring 2021. For operational reasons, it is not possible to include any additional candidates in the testing arrangements at this stage.
