What is the Kent Test & 11+ ?

The Kent Test, 11+ or the 11 Plus is a test that is given to pupils who are in their last year of primary school (Year 6). The purpose of the Kent Test is to determine whether or not a pupil is academically suited to attend a grammar school from Year 7 onwards.

The Kent Test, also known as the 11 Plus, normally takes place in one of the pupil’s school classrooms during the September of Year 6.

The 11+ Test is not compulsory, if your child goes to a local authority primary school in Kent they will be eligible to apply to sit the 11 Plus. Ashford Kent is an area that has many grammar schools to which every child is able to attend when they meet the entry requirements.

The Kent Test (11 Plus) consists of:

  • Verbal Reasoning
