Admission to Year 7 is by the 11+ selection test.

Places at CCHSG are applied for through the Local Education Authority and allocated to students based on performance in the 11+ selection test. The purpose of the 11+ test is to enable grammar schools to identify students who have the potential to thrive in an environment which provides a highly academic curriculum, which also has depth and breadth, and offers a range of challenging pursuits. We do not charge fees and we welcome applications from students living in Essex and surrounding areas. The school is committed to fair access for disadvantaged students.

The Supplementary Information Form is for parents/carers to provide additional information regarding fair access and finance to support your student.

Please see the Consortium of Selective Schools Website for details including 11+ Test Information and sample tests
