Life Beyond St George's

Leaving the family environment of St George's can seem very daunting, but we are on hand to guide parents through the choices available post year 6. Once a family leaves our school, we like to stay in touch and are happy to offer further advice should the need arise. Some of our children remain in the Independent sector; we are able to recommend a number of options suitable for your child.

Due to Lincolnshire's fantastic Grammar schools, many parents opt to send their child to a Local Authority secondary school. To gain a place at the Grammar Schools, children must be registered for and take the 11+ exams in early September of year 6 each year. 

The 11+ exams consists of two tests taken a week apart in the familiar environment of St George's. The first paper is a verbal reasoning exam and the second exam tests non-verbal reasoning skills. Children receive preparation for the exams and we run a Summer School during the holidays each year to provide additional practice. We have an excellent track record of success in the 11+ exams - currently 95% of all pupils reach the pass mark, meaning that pupils can attend their local Grammar School. However, the vast majority of our pupils receive a 'Lincolnshire pass,' which means that they can choose to attend any Grammar School in Lincolnshire.
