What is the 11 Plus (11+) entrance exam format for Burnham Grammar School?

The entrance exam is called the Secondary Transfer Test (SET) and consists of two 60-minute papers which are provided by GL Assessment. The test will measure the following skills:

Paper 1

  • English and verbal reasoning (50% weighting)

  • Your child’s student number (which will have been provided in a letter or email)
