11 Plus results day
When do the 11 Plus results come out? Most 11-plus results come out mid-October, though the exact date varies by region. This ensures that parents have received their child’s score before the deadline for submitting secondary school applications at the end of October. Results may be sent by post, by email or may be available to check online. 11-plus results are strictly embargoed, so there is no way to find out your child’s score early.
Although it is only a month or so, the wait between taking the 11-plus and receiving results can feel very long. Results day can be extremely stressful – for both parents and children. If you’ve had good news, congratulations! You should be very proud. But remember to be considerate of parents and children who may have had disappointing results. Remind your child not to boast about their score at school.
Try to hide your disappointment if your own child did not pass the 11- plus. Unfortunately, it is not possible to appeal your child’s score or to re-sit the 11-plus. Instead, focus on the positives of the school your child will be attending. Reassure your son or daughter that you love them and are proud of them. Praise their other achievements and try to move on quickly.
