Introduction

 

Colyton Grammar School is a co-ed grammar school in Devon. The school has been rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in three successive reports. [1]

 

Besides its standard entry point (11+), the school also accepts late entry applications. To assess pupils for late transfer, Colyton Grammar administers the CEM Select test. 

 

CEM Select is created by the Centre of Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM), which is part of Cambridge Assessment.

 

Colyton Grammar School Late Entry Admissions Information

 

These tests will be taken at Colyton Grammar. Dates are not specified as the school will only assess applicants if there are places available. 

 

Your child’s results will be used to determine their rank order.

 

In the case of oversubscription, priority will be given to:

 

– Looked after children or previously looked after children.

– Pupils who are entitled to pupil premium, including the service premium. 

– Children with a higher ranking, based on the total score achieved in the tests.

 

In the case of a tied ranking for the last available place, proximity to the school will be taken into consideration, measured via a straight line from the main school Reception front door to the house address of the applicant (using the Devon mapping system).

As part of the assessment process for late transfer entry, your child will be asked to complete the CEM Select assessment. 

 

The test contains a number of unusual question formats that your child is unlikely to have encountered before. These include drag and drop digits and sentence auto-completes.

 

The assessment will be divided into a series of highly time-pressured sections. Your child doesn’t necessarily need to complete all the questions in each section to do well.

 

Colyton Grammar School (Late Transfer) In-Year Entry Exam Format

 

The CEM Select assessment will cover the following areas:

 

  • Verbal Reasoning
  • Non-Verbal Reasoning
  • Numerical Reasoning

 

The Verbal Reasoning section of the test assesses your child’s ability to solve problems using words, with a special focus on depth and breadth of vocabulary.

 

The Non-Verbal Reasoning section requires your child to solve problems using shapes and patterns with a main focus on one specific question type.

 

The Numerical Reasoning section assesses your child’s ability to solve problems using numbers and arithmetic.
