Warwickshire Grammar Schools and the 11+ test
Registering your child for the 11+ selection tests is optional. It is only necessary if you wish your child to apply for a place at a Warwickshire Grammar school.
Further information on Warwickshire Grammar schools and the 11+ test is available here.
Registration forms for September 2015 entry will be available from June 2014.
Moving house and applying for a school place
If you are moving into Warwickshire, you must provide proof of your new address by 3rd February 2014 for September 2014 entry. If the Admissions Service does not receive sufficient proof by this date, your original address must be used for admissions purposes.
If your move involves the purchase of a property, you will need to provide appropriate written evidence in the form of a letter from your solicitors detailing your exchange of contracts and the actual completion date. A letter of intention to purchase is not sufficient.
If your move involves the renting of a property, you will need to provide appropriate independent written evidence (e.g. from an Estate Agent or Solicitor) of the tenancy agreement or lease including the start and end dates. You will also need to provide appropriate written evidence (in the form of a letter from your Solicitor or Estate Agent) confirming the sale of your existing property. Any tenancy agreement needs to have an end date later than the start of the appropriate Autumn Term.
If your move involves you returning to live in a property that you already own, you will need to provide appropriate written evidence of the date that you will resume living in the property and that you intend to remain living there for the foreseeable future. If you have rented this property out, please provide evidence that you have given your tenants notice to leave.
If your move involves you residing with a member of your family, we will need to see your child benefit book, showing that the child is resident at the relevant address.
Please note that unless the written evidence provided proves, to the satisfaction of the Authority, that you have moved or will move to the address that you indicate, we will not be able to consider your application from your new address. Please talk with the Admissions Service about your specific case.
Children living at more than one address
In the case of disputes between parents, there is an expectation that parents will resolve these amongst themselves and make a single application which both parents are in agreement with.
