Admissions Process for James Allen’s Girls’ School (JAGS) Eleven Plus (11+) for Year 7 entry

11+ applicants may be registered from the start of the summer term when they are in Year 5 through to 31 October when they are in Year 6.

An online registration form is available on the school’s website.

Entrance Exams

The 11+ process starts with applicants being invited to a pre-selection assessment morning in the autumn term. The aim is to seek a clearer view of an applicant’s potential, both on a one-on-one and in a group setting providing them with a taster day at JAGS and an opportunity to meet fellow applicants.

Girls are assigned into small groups to solve puzzles; given a taster lesson; and asked to complete an online test to measure verbal, non-verbal and numerical reasoning skills (age-standardised).

Applicants who performed well at the pre-assessment selection will be called back to sit papers in Mathematics for 45 minutes and English for 1 hour. Papers are based on the assumption that applicants have reached at least Level 5 of the National Curriculum in these subjects.
