Year 7 Entrants
The School Prospectus and other relevant admission details are available on this website.
Parents should express a preference for the School on their Local Authority's (LA) Common Application Form (either online or by post) which should be returned to the LA by the date on the application form. Your son will need to be registered to take the 11+ exam. This is done by registering with the Consortium of Selective Schools in Essex (CSSE) who manage the 11+ process in Essex. Parents applying for a place at this School must also complete the CSSE's Supplementary Information Form (SIF) (either online at www.csse.org.uk or by post), which must be returned to the CSSE by the date on that form. To register please go to www.csse.org.uk.
Details of the Entrance Test for 2022 entry will be announced by the CSSE soon and we will share those details here when the information is available.
Further information on admission to WHSB can also be found in the Southend Borough Council booklet on Secondary School Admissions.
