Kendrick School: About

Kendrick School’s Eleven Plus Exam

Kendrick School will use the same Admission Test as a number of other Grammar Schools, including the Slough Consortium. Applicants for any of these schools may only take the test once. If you are applying to more than one school, you must register with each school, according to their admissions policy. Your child’s scores can only be shared with those schools for which they are registered. 

There will be two tests each of approximately one hour. There will be a short break between the two test sessions. Each test will assess Verbal, Non-Verbal and Numerical ability.

Applicants are expected to show competence in skills appropriate to Key Stage 2 English and Mathematics, and to be able to apply these skills creatively. The tests are created by CEM (Cambridge Assessment).

The raw scores will be age standardised and the ranking is determined by the aggregate of the age standardised scores of both tests.
