Admissions - general information
"Leaders ensure all pupils experience a broad, ambitious academic curriculum coupled with first-class provision for personal development.
As one parent commented, ‘This is a wonderful school for the overall development of your child.’ "
Ofsted, November 2021
Most students enter Langley Grammar School in Year 7 through the 11+ academic selection process. There are occasional vacancies for places in other year groups - any such places are allocated through the in-year admissions process. A further group of students will join the Sixth Form from other schools at the start of Year 12.
Entry to Year 7
Children are eligible to be considered for admission to Langley Grammar School in Year 7 if they meet the required standard in the 11+ examination, which is designed to identify pupils with the ability and aptitude for the kind of education offer by the four grammar schools in Slough.
Langley Grammar School is part of an 11+ testing consortium with Herschel Grammar School, Upton Court Grammar School, and St Bernard’s Catholic Grammar School.

11+ Test provider for 2023 test (2024 entry to Year 7)
CEM, the current 11+ test provider for the Slough Consortium of Grammar Schools, has given notice that it will no longer be offering paper-based tests, but will only be providing online testing.
The number of candidates sitting the Slough Consortium test makes an online test impractical, and alternative testing arrangements will therefore be put in place for the September 2023 test.
The four grammar schools in the Slough Consortium are currently in discussion to agree the format and provider of the 2023 test, and further information will be made available on the school websites when these arrangements are confirmed. No further comment will be made until then.
Please note that Slough Consortium does not support or promote tutoring for the 11+ examination – regardless of provider – as the test outcomes should be an indicator of the child’s natural academic ability and their potential to benefit from the kind of academic education provided in the grammar schools.
Entry to Year 8 – 11
Admission to other year groups (known as 'in year admissions') will be subject to the availability of places, and the demonstration of a comparable standard of ability to the year group in question. This will be determined by ability tests set by the school, together with an academic report from the applicant’s current school.

The great majority of Year 11 students at Langley Grammar School stay on to the Sixth Form, and we also welcome a number of students transferring from other schools.
Students hoping to join our Sixth Form should have a good GCSE profile, averaging a minimum average points score of 5.5 across the range of subjects studied. Grade 5 or above is required in English Language and Mathematics.
