11+ Familiarisation Sessions

We will offer 11+ familiarisation sessions for boys on Wednesday 12 June 2024 and Thursday 13 June 2024 at 4:30pm.

The registration for these sessions has now closed and all families who have registered have received information about the arrangements.

The test papers will be available to download (free of charge) to use at home later in June.


The familiarisation sessions will be held in our Sports Hall and the intention is to help children to become familiar with this exam setting. Candidates will take a Mathematics paper and will be given an English paper with comprehension and composition questions to complete at home.

Both papers will be set by the school. Mark schemes will also be provided in order for the papers to be used diagnostically at home and all the papers will be available to download, free of charge, from our website.


See the links below.


Attending a session and taking a practice paper in an exam hall provides a valuable experience but this is not essential and all candidates for the actual 11+ will be welcome regardless of whether they have attended a familiarisation session.

The registration forms will close at 9:00am on a date to be confirmed or at an earlier date if the session is full.

Familiarisation Materials

We are pleased to provide sets of familiarisation materials which we hope you will find useful in preparing for the 11+ tests.
