Does anyone know how many 11+ places Kings have this year? Offers are out tomorrow

Anecdotally, I have heard of more boys getting interviews than before. I know two boys with interviews at Kings that didn't get interviews at KGS.

I know they are increasing the 11+ intake, but by how many?

Thank you

I don't think the intake is increasing - they are just restructuring so that the KCJS boys move in to the senior school at 11 rather than 13.

Info they sent me was 60 places for 11+ (plus 80 moving up from KCJS) and then a further 30 places for 13+

Ok. Thank you. So no increase in numbers, just different children do better in different schools' exams. As is normal.

It used to be the other way round - 20-30 places at 11+ and then 60 at 13+, but they wanted to be more accessible to state school leavers so they increased the 11+ intake at the expense of the 13+. This change was about 5 years ago though.

35 places for 13+ and 70 for 11+ was what I was told. I understand their initial intention was to interview 70 for 13+ over 23 and 24 January (which they said so in an email to us in November), but they ended up interviewing 120 over a few more days. I am not sure what prompted the change. Anyone more enlightened out there?

Interesting. Just seems to be more boys being interviewed this year from previous

Sorry, might have been 30 places for 13+ and 60 for 11+.

Hi does anyone know how many 11+ academic scholarships are awarded roughly?
Thank you.

Don't think a lot by all accounts. But also not that much off in terms of £. They hold back most for bursary awards
