A record seven youngsters achieve eligible score in the 11+

A record seven Chard School pupils achieved an eligible score in the 11+ test that they sat at Colyton Grammar School last month.

All of them are now invited to apply for a place for entry in September 2018.

This is the highest number of pupils that have received such a score in the test at Chard School.

Headmistress Katie Hill said: “Colyton Grammar School is a selective school and has enjoyed great academic success, ranking it amongst the best schools of its type in the country.

“We are delighted that 70 per cent of our Year 6 pupils who sat the Colyton entrance exam have gained an eligible score and been invited to apply for a place at the school.

“This is a great achievement for the children and reflects the hard work and dedication that they have applied to their learning throughout their time at Chard School.

Many congratulations to pupils Charlie, Harry, Josua, Evie, Taryn, Yingen and Isabella.”
