Admissions

11+ Entry

The admission number of the school for each Year 7 intake cohort is 120. Admission to Boston Grammar School is decided by an 11+ test procedure. Practice tests are available, and these are normally undertaken at the primary school prior to the real tests. The actual selection tests will be taken either at the primary school, or at BGS, subject to arrangements negotiated with primary heads, for pupils in their final year at primary school and of the appropriate age group. The results of these tests will be rank ordered to select the top 25% of the local cohort, in keeping with the percentage intake targets across Lincolnshire’s grammar schools.

Mid-Year Entry

Mid-year entry to the school is possible in Years 7 to 11 if the numbers in the relevant year group are below the published admission number. Applications are made on the Lincolnshire mid-year admissions form or directly to the school, but applicants for places in Years 10-11 will need to be aware that Key Stage 4 qualification routes already started in other schools may not be able to be continued or contribute to successful outcomes from the school’s examination board syllabuses. If a child has qualified for other grammar schools in Lincolnshire, a direct transfer can be made, at the Governors’ discretion.

Sixth Form Entry

To secure a place in the Boston Grammar School Sixth Form, you should first look for the A Level courses that you wish to take and ensure that you make a provisional application for those courses. Once we have received and acknowledged your application, we will invite you in to discuss your choices, and we will then assume that you are a firm applicant and will cost you into our curriculum modelling. If, for any reason, your chosen combination of subjects does not fit the timetable blocking for next year, we will contact you later in the year to discuss your aspirations and how we may be able to accommodate them.
