Entrance Exam

The entrance examinations for September 2018 entry will take place during January 2018.  If the examination date is missed, and if there are vacancies in the required year, we are happy to arrange adhoc examinations on an individual basis.

Please contact Admissions on 01332 510030 or email admissions@derbygrammar.org to discuss entrance examinations.

The entrance examinations consist of a general reasoning paper and written papers in Mathematics, English Comprehension and Writing. Both English and Mathematics papers are set to the standard of the National Curriculum and boys for entry into Year 7 are expected to perform to a standard broadly equivalent to a good level 4 or above. Boys seeking entry above Year 7 may also be assessed in modern languages and sciences.
