Parents of prospective pupils are welcome to visit the school by prior arrangement with the Headteacher.  The main open evening is early in the autumn term. Details are sent out to feeder primary schools and are widely advertised in the press.

11+ testing
The school is a member of the Lincolnshire Consortium of Grammar Schools (LCGS). For those parents wishing to obtain information about 11+ testing please visit the Consortium website.

Timetable for admissions
All dates and procedures concerning application forms, deadlines and notification of offers can be found online at www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/schooladmissions. There is a booklet you can download called the 'Going to Secondary School in Lincolnshire 2018-2019' booklet available here on the Lincolnshire county council website.  The LEA then identifies the outcomes of the tests and parental choices to determine who gains a place at the school. The School is not involved in offering places, or determining who does or does not get a place at the school. Passing the test is not a guarantee of a place at the school.

Pupils seeking admission to Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School, Horncastle, in Year 7 must firstly have qualified under the school’s selection arrangements by attaining a score of at least the agreed minimum standard in the 11+ selection tests. These are set and standardised by the National Foundation for Educational Research on behalf of the consortium of Lincolnshire Grammar Schools. Sitting the 11+ test at Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School, at one of its feeder primary schools or at any other venue, does not constitute an application for admission.
