Admission to Year 7 - September 2023
Slough Consortium 11+ arrangements for September 2023 entry
The Slough Consortium of Grammar Schools consists of Herschel Grammar School, Langley Grammar School, St Bernard’s Catholic Grammar School and Upton Court Grammar School. The purpose of the Consortium is to coordinate arrangements for entry to Year 7 through a common 11+ examination.
We operate a shared 11+ entrance examination process using the same examination papers and common eligibility criteria. The 11+ examination for entry in September 2023 was held on Saturday 17 September 2022.
Please note that registration for the 11+ examination closed on 12th June 2022.

Langley Grammar School Open Evening and Mornings
Our Open Evening was held on Tuesday 13th September 2022 from 4.30pm to 7.30pm.
The on-site Open Evening event is complemented supported by online resources for you to view at home. Further details can be found on our dedicated Open Events page here.
There are also a number of Open Mornings when you can tour the school during a normal working day. Each open morning event lasts approximately 45 minutes to one hour and consists of a tour of the school led by our students, followed by an opportunity to talk to the headteacher or other members of the senior leadership team.
You will need to book a time slot to attend open mornings and we will limit the number of family members attending to just one parent or other accompanying adult for each child. One ticket admits both the parent and child. Click here for further information.
Eligibility for entry to the Slough grammar schools
Admission to any of the four grammar schools in Slough is based on reaching an eligibility score in the consortium 11+ examination. A standardised score of 111 or above represents approximately the top third of the 11+ examination outcome range.
Any child reaching a score of 111 on a standardised scale is deemed potentially suitable for the kind of education offered by the grammar schools in Slough and is eligible for consideration for admission. However, each of the four schools have different criteria for admission in the event that they receive more applications than they have places available and you must check each school's admissions policy carefully.
