During the forced school closures: An Update from the Lincolnshire Grammar Consortium: KGGS


11+ Dates for September 2021 Entry


The current situation with COVID-19 and school closures is obviously disruptive to our 11+ planning. We have been working closely with GLA, our 11+ provider, to ensure that the 11+ procedure for September 2021 entry has minimum disruption.

Our decision making must be guided by current government advice and so dates may still be subject to change. However, our current plans are outlined below.


Practice tests
If schools are back and social distancing measures are such that we can go ahead with tests we will do these as usual. However, if schools are still closed or social distancing measures means exams and tests are not possible, these will not go ahead. We are waiting to hear what the government decides regarding schools opening.

Actual Tests
We have moved these to:

  • Saturday 19 September Verbal Reasoning
  • Saturday 26 September Non-Verbal Reasoning


These are one week later than originally published. This is in order for schools to make arrangements for autumn open evenings and also to allow time to work with primary schools who carry out the tests on behalf of their local grammar schools.

Notification of results
Schools will receive these from GLA by 15 October 2020. This means parents will still receive their results before they have to submit their preference forms to their home local authority.

At Barrowby CE Primary school, we recognise that making a decision about whether or not your child should sit the 11+ test can be a difficult decision for parents. We hope you find the information below useful.
