Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School Horncastle

The school is responsible for its own admission arrangements and works closely with the Local Education Authority and neighbouring secondary schools.

Admission in Year 7

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 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.

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.
