11+

Please note

Some dates have been changed to those previously published; this is to allow the Year 6 pupils to have more time to settle back into school into September before they take the tests. The decision was made by the Lincolnshire Consortium of Grammar School (LCGS) in February 2021 and will affect all grammar schools in Lincolnshire. The amended dates are highlighted in red.
