JimW Colyton Grammar School  2


Thank you for considering Colyton Grammar School for your child.

Our main entry point is in the Autumn term for Year 7, although entry is possible to other year-groups or at other times of the school year, dependent on the availability of spaces. Colyton Grammar School is a Selective Co-educational Academy in the state sector, responsible for its testing arrangements and admission criteria.

Anyone taking the test at Colyton Grammar School will not be considered for Torbay Schools as it is a different assessment.

The Process for Entry at Year 7

Year 7 September 2025 entry - Applications for 11+ registration will opened on 1st April 2024 and will close at Midday on 6 September 2024


Children may only take the entrance test once in each academic year. Entry is determined by performance indicating appropriate ability in the entrance tests. A single Common Application Form (CAF) covers application to all state secondary schools. A child will receive only one offer of a school place.

Applicants achieving eligible scores will be ranked on the basis of performance in the tests. All children, including those with an EHC Plan or Statement naming the school must be eligible to be admitted.

Closing date for applications for 2025 - Friday 6th September 2024 Midday

Familiarisation guide

The familiarisation guide and the accompanying guides are designed to inform parents and candidates about the entrance test in order to:

  • Give a feel for the appearance of the actual assessment.
  • Introduce some of the symbols and phrases used in the assessment.
  • Inform parents and candidates of the invigilation procedure.
  • Indicate the range of disciplines that will be tested.
  • Highlight the range of answer formats used in the assessment.

The familiarisation booklet and the accompanying guides are NOT definitive and the inclusion of any question types does not guarantee that they will be found in the final assessment.
