Stratford Upon Avon Grammar School for Girls

Stratford Upon Avon Grammar School for Girls

Nestled in the picturesque charm of Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, where the enduring brilliance of Shakespeare still resonates, stands Stratford Girls' Grammar School. With roots dating back to 1958, it was originally known as Stratford-upon-Avon Grammar School for Girls. During its early years, the institution witnessed a generation of young women flourishing within its walls, receiving an education that empowered them to pursue their aspirations.

In 2011, the school embarked on a new chapter, achieving academy status and adopting the name Stratford Girls' Grammar School. This transformation signified a renewed commitment to fostering the potential of young women aged 11-18, offering them a supportive and enriching environment for academic, intellectual, and personal growth.

11+ Exam Details:
Exam Board/Format:
Warwickshire's 11 plus test in the West Midlands has two 60-minute papers covering English, Maths, Verbal reasoning, and Non-verbal reasoning. It's all multiple-choice, no writing. Maths and English questions check understanding of Key Stage 2 curriculum, testing reasoning. Reasoning questions assess logic and problem-solving, including spotting patterns.

Warwickshire utilizes the West Midlands 11 plus test, consisting of two papers, each lasting approximately 60 minutes. A few minutes are designated at the beginning of each paper for children to listen to instructions and complete some unmarked practice questions.

Both papers are subdivided into smaller, individually-timed sections that evaluate:

- English comprehension

- Maths

- Verbal reasoning

- Non-verbal reasoning

The test is exclusively in a multiple-choice format, with no writing sections. Children record their answers in a separate answer booklet, which is electronically marked.

The maths and English questions gauge your child's grasp of Key Stage 2 national curriculum content, including Year 6 objectives, assessing their ability to reason and apply knowledge accurately.

The reasoning questions evaluate your child’s logical and problem-solving abilities. Verbal and non-verbal reasoning, typically not taught in school, aim to measure how well children can identify patterns, connect, and manipulate written and visual information.
