These scores will then be used by the grammar schools that your child has applied for to decide who will enrol.

In addition, your child must score no lower than 107 marks in each test.

If your child achieved less than the required 323 marks, don’t panic. You have the opportunity to organise with your child’s primary school to have the case examined by the Head Teacher Assessment Panel. This panel will examine your child’s academic performance, as well as the English writing exercise that your child completed during the 11+.
