Select a county to find which schools and relevant entrance exams are in your area.

Why is this important?


Almost every area and every school has different testing procedures, the format of the tests varies and the admission rules for allocating school places are specific to the area or school.

We’re here to help you navigate your way through the 11 Plus exams by giving you all the information you need before, during and after your child’s journey to grammar or private school.

In each county section you will find information about admissions to the grammar schools in England, plus information about the highly popular and competitive ‘partially selective schools’ that exist in some areas.

Find which exams and schools are in each county

NB: Please note that these lists were correct at the time of publication. Schools and regions do change exam boards, so it’s essential that you check with each grammar school that you apply to as to what exam board it uses.
