11+ Assesses
Places at CCHSG are applied for through the Local Education Authority and allocated to students based on performance in the 11+ selection test. The purpose of the 11+ test is to enable grammar schools to identify students who have the potential to thrive in an environment which provides a highly academic curriculum, which also has depth and breadth, and offers a range of challenging pursuits. We do not charge fees and we welcome applications from students living in Essex and surrounding areas. The school is committed to fair access for disadvantaged students.
