Year 7 entry
As an academy Langley Grammar School operates as its own admissions authority and collaborates in an 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 of over subsubscription.

Allocation of places for September 2018
Places in year 7 for September 2018 will be offered by local authorities on Thursday 1 March 2018.
Requests for remark
All the entrance tests are double scanned and checked using different optical mark readers and different staff. The process is reliable and trustworthy and as a result re-marks would be unnecessary. The likelihood of any mistake being made in recording the correct test responses from the multiple choice answer sheets is negligible. The cost of a re-mark would be £50 per paper. Requests for a remark should be made in writing to the school where your child sat the test.
If your child has not been offered a place in their preferred grammar school which you named on the common application form, you may appeal by using the online appeals form. The link to the appeals website is https://www.sloughconsortium.org.uk/appeals
Parents often request particular information to help prepare their appeals case. we have collated the most frequently requested information relevant to 2018 appeals into a single document 'LGS Appeals Information - 2018 entry' which can be downloaded here or at the foot of this page.
Admissions to Year 12
Please go to the Sixth Form Admissions page for details about the Sixth Form admissions process.
Admission to other year groups
Langley Grammar is a very popular school and as such is always very heavily over subscribed. Admissions after the initial year of entry in year 7, will depend on the availability of a place, and the suitability of the student for a grammar school education as determined by the school's assessment procedures. Any applicant who has previously sat the Consortium 11+ admission examination but did not attain a score of at least 111 at that time will not be eligible for consideration for entry to years 8-11.
If you would like your child to be considered for testing for possible admission to Langley Grammar School, please complete and return the form below. This form should only be completed if your child has not previously sat the 11+ test.
