Practice papers will be made available to Lincolnshire feeder primary schools. If the practice papers cannot be used in your daughter's primary school, e.g. if your daughter is at an out of county primary school, you can obtain commercially printed practice papers published by G L Assessment. These come in packs, together with a guide for parents and an administration manual and mark scheme, and are available from online retailers. They are representative of the actual test papers but not identical. The actual test papers may include item types which are not in the practice papers e.g. spatial reasoning, or omit item types which are. Since the actual tests are designed to meet Lincolnshire Grammar Schools' specific requirements, their format and layout may also differ from the standard practice papers. Nonetheless, the practice papers give children an opportunity to familiarise themselves with the general nature of the tests and to practise aspects such as following instructions carefully and working to a time limit. If purchasing packs of tests, please ensure that you buy the MULTIPLE CHOICE FORMAT, NOT the Standard Format tests. The following familiarisation papers illustrate this format:
|OPEN EVENING - Tuesday 11th July 2023
Our Open Evening will take place on Tuesday 11th July at 6.00pm. This will give you the opportunity to look around the school and to meet our students and staff prior to the tests in September.
Please be aware that there are many stairs to negotiate in school; therefore, if you have any special requirements, please inform the school in advance.
Parking will not be available in the school grounds, however, there is a multi-storey car park, just a few minutes walk away, in Welham Street (NG31 6QU).
We look forward to meeting you.
