Wiltshire 11 Plus

The New Schools Admissions Code, by law from 2012 , due to take effect for admissions for Entry from September 2013, states that schools must take all reasonable steps to inform parents of the outcome of tests before the closing deadline for applications by noon on 31st of October of that year.

There are two selective grammar schools in Wiltshire, Bishop Wordsworth’s for boys, and South Wilts for girls. Each school administers the 11 plus test. In order to sit the 11 plus test at either of these schools there is a two stage procedure. You must submit the Common Application Form (CAF) to the Wiltshire County Council and a Supplementary Form (available from the school) to the school directly.
Candidates from outside Wiltshire should submit the Common Application Form through their own local county who will then inform Wiltshire County Council.

Test Types

The test consists of two papers each lasting 50 minutes and administered in about one hour:
