In September 2015 we ran our first Familiarisation Day. This has now become a regular event on the Chatterton Tuition calendar although we now call this our Super Mock Morning. Attendance is open to everyone regardless of whether they have tuition with us. Booking is essential.
For 2023 – the Super Mock Morning is Friday 1st September. We always use our own unique papers, which are tailored to match the real 11+ papers for Ripon Grammar entry.

What is the date in 2022?
The date is still to be advised at Ripon Grammar School however it is likely to be 10th or 11th September. Those from out of catchment usually sit the exam in the large sports hall. Those children who go to primary schools within catchment usually sit the exams with others from their primary school in a smaller classroom.
Results letters are usually posted out to families by post around the middle of October.
What is non-verbal reasoning?
Non-verbal reasoning questions are designed to test a child’s ability to recognise patterns, similarities, and analogies in unfamiliar concepts. They are required to make sense of new information and to apply that information. It gives an indication to the school of how well the child will master new materials and concepts in later school life.
What is verbal reasoning?
Verbal reasoning questions are designed to test a child’s verbal skills. The child will need to demonstrate their ability and understanding of the rules of language. The child will need to be able to identify pattern, similarity and difference between words. These tests are useful as an indication to the school of the potential of the child to learn in later school life.
Applying to the local authority
If you live out of catchment, or your child attends a school out of catchment, then you must make sure you apply for them to sit the 11+ exam. The date you need to apply by is generally mid August (actual date will be posted as and when we know). You need to apply in writing or by email to Harrogate Borough Council, or through the North Yorkshire County Council website.
