ESSEX AND SOUTH-END-ON SEA

Consortium of Selective Schools in Essex - CSSE.

The LEA appears to have little or no involvement in the testing procedures. Grammar schools in the Essex Council area cater for children who are deemed by means of the 11 plus exam to be in the top 25% of the ability range. About 1000 grammar school places are available to the approximate 4000 that sit the tests.

For entry to secondary school or grammar school in September of the following school year children will usually sit their 11 plus exam early in the autumn term of their last primary school year.

 

Candidates will sit two tests. One in English and one in Mathematics. The English paper will last sixty minutes with ten minutes additional reading time. The Mathematics paper will last sixty minutes. The final scores for the individual papers are mathematically standardised and ‘weighted’, each being worth 50% of the marks. Tests are not age standardised.

The 11+ exams in Essex is operated for the Grammar Schools, by a consortium, the Consortium of Selective Schools in Essex - CSSE.

 

The Consortium of Selective Schools in Essex , www.csse.org.uk, will provide you with a wealth of knowledge.

Any questions about grammar schools in this area should be directed to the consortium and not the Local Authority.
