  • Your name
  • An email address for you / your parent/ carer
  • The county in which you are taking the 11 plus exam
  • Your current academic year at school
  • The primary school which you attend


Why we use your information

Our lawful basis for using your information

We will only collect and use your information as you, or your parents/carers have given us permission to use it in a certain way.


Collecting this information

Your parents/carers have provided the personal information we need to collect.


Storing this information

We will keep personal information about you while you are one of our current students, to contact you to ask the outcome of the 11 plus exam after the expiration of the course and to request feedback. We will delete all information we hold for you by 1st November of the year in which you receive your Grammar test results.


Data Sharing

Your rights

How to access personal information we hold about you

You can find out if we hold any personal information about you, and how we use it, by making a ‘subject access request’, as long as we judge that you can properly understand your rights and what they mean. We will aim to deal with this request as soon as possible.


Your other rights over your data

You have other rights over how your personal information is used and kept safe, including the right to:

  • Say that you don’t want it to be used if this would cause, or is causing, harm or distress
  • Stop it being used to send you marketing materials
  • Say that you don’t want it used to make automated decisions (decisions made by a computer or machine, rather than by a person)
  • Have it corrected, deleted, or destroyed if it is wrong, or restrict our use of it
  • Claim compensation if the data protection rules are broken and this harms you in some way



We take any complaints about how we collect and use your personal information very seriously, so please let us know if you think we’ve done something wrong.

You can make a complaint at any time by contacting us.
