Welcome to The Grange School. I hope that the information on our website will give you a flavour of life at our wonderful school and an insight into what makes The Grange such a special place to be.
Our school is a warm and welcoming environment built on the strength of relationships between our children and staff. We provide a modern, forward-thinking approach to independent education based on traditional values. Here, our children are motivated to learn and encouraged to participate in a wide range of enrichment activities so that they develop academically and emerge as fully-rounded,thoughtful and caring individuals.
My aim is to provide every child with the experiences, knowledge and academic skills they need to become confident and ambitious adults. We want our young people to have every opportunity available to them so I am committed to encouraging them all to aim high and live their education.
We hope our website gives you and your child, or children, a real insight into the stimulating, exciting environment and the exceptional relationships that are a fundamental part of our community. Of course, to truly understand that Grange experience, you need to visit us, so please do get in touch with our Admissions Team and book a tour or attend a Taster Day and begin your Grange journey.

The school uses the CEM Select entrance exam to assess admissions. CEM Select includes particular questions types, covering Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning and Mathematics, often paired with a CEM English paper. It is particularly important to practise the Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning modules, as the precise type of question varies across different exam boards.

What questions can I expect?
CEM Select assesses Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning and Mathematics. However, many schools choose to partner CEM Select with an English assessment. Every Ready Steady Pass preparation exam includes a complimentary, complete English assessment as standard.
CEM Select tests are largely multiple choice, but also include fill-in-the-blanks and drag and drop question types. Which are included in all Ready Steady Pass preparation tests.
