Year 7 Admissions

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 11+ test for admission in September 2021 will take place in September 2020 subject to confirmation following guidance in relation to the Covid 19 pandemic. CCHSG is part of the Consortium of Selective Schools in Essex. Registration for the test is via the CSSE website for schools within the CSSE and opens for a limited period in May/June 2020. Please see the Consortium of Selective Schools Website for details www.csse.org.uk

11+ Test information and sample tests can also be found on CSSE website  www.csse.org.uk
