Crossley Heath Grammar School

Entrance exams are written by the school, with the exception of Verbal Reasoning which is provided by GL. GL (Granada Learning, previously NFER) is one of the two leading 11+ exam bodies in the UK, alongside CEM.

Maths papers and Verbal Reasoning papers are usually entirely multiple choice, while the English test is largely open answer.

Let’s look at what we know
