The Test Papers

The 11+ in Lancashire is based on the school work your child has completed in primary school. The exam consists of a Mathematics paper, an English paper and a Verbal Reasoning paper, all of which are age-weighted. The English and Mathematics tests are of a similar standard to the work that your child will have undertaken throughout their primary school career.

 

There are 3 separate test papers. Verbal Reasoning tests your child’s vocabulary, comprehension and their skills in verbal reasoning. The maths questions should not go beyond what children are expected to have been taught by the end of

Year 5.

Parents of children wishing for their child to sit the 11+ for Lancashire Grammar Schools must complete an entrance form available from each school website. While all the schools use the same test format the admission criteria for each school is different. Details are on the school websites and you should check these details before applying for a school or the elevenplus exam.
