Home > 11+ Information > 11+ Birmingham
In Birmingham there are eight high-performing grammar schools including both co-educational and gender-specific. These schools are renowned for offering an outstanding level of education, producing consistent top positions on national league tables.
If you are looking for your child to gain a space at a Birmingham grammar school, you will need to complete an application form to register your child for the 11+ entrance exam. Registration for the 11 plus entrance exam in Birmingham can be completed by visiting the Birmingham school admissions website. If you do not complete and return this form before the deadline, your child may not be able to sit the exam. If you live outside of Birmingham, you will need to apply to your own authority requesting a Birmingham grammar school.
Please note that if you wish to apply to both Birmingham and Warwickshire Grammar Schools, you only need to register once, as both share the same entrance examination. If you are registering for the 11 plus exam in Birmingham, tick the relevant box to share your child’s results with Warwickshire, or vice versa. The test is set by the University of Durham, Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM).
If your child has been in receipt of pupil premium in any of the 6 years prior, tick the relevant box when registering, as different cut-off scores can apply (see below for more information).
In order to succeed in the 11 plus exam, preparation is key to building the necessary skills and confidence. Questions covered in the 11 plus test require an in-depth knowledge of various topics, including those that may not be taught at school, e.g. Non-Verbal Reasoning. KSOL’s personalised online courses are suitable for all types of 11+ entrance exams and are completed by children across the country, to help them prepare. Whatever their needs, we will tailor your child's course to tackle weaker areas head on!
KSOL recommend that parents visit the ‘Results and Offers’ page which indicates the scores required for admission to each of the schools listed in the Birmingham Grammar School Directory below. This will help when considering which schools to include on your child’s Local Authority School Preference Form. The deadline to complete this form is the 31st October.
