We understand the need for you to obtain additional information from parents who have been allocated a place for their child at your school following a successful outcome from the 11+ entry assessment.
HEIapply is empowering Grammar Schools worldwide to be better at streamlining intake and induction processes. Our intuitive online system is designed to complement and enhance your processes, enabling the ultimate applicant journey.

The Challenge

High Demand For Places

Grammar Schools are in high demand with pupils from across neighbouring areas, local catchments and further afield wishing to apply. We know that means hundreds of applications from eager parents trying to secure a place for their child.


The competition for a place at the top ranked schools can lead to oversubscription and waiting lists, creating additional workload for the already busy admissions team.

Entrance Assessment

A task that sucks up a load of admin resources from accepting applications, communicating with parents to managing the assessment day and distributing exam results.

With high levels of manual effort involved, multiple levels of entry and lower levels of customer engagement, Grammar Schools are at risk of falling short on delivering the applicant journey the modern day applicant expects.

Our Solution

We recognise the need for Grammar Schools to operate efficiently, effectively and competitively. We know that speed and cost efficiency are hugely important.

That’s why we work with you to ensure that we have all the vital ingredients to create your perfect admissions solution at a budget that works for you.

Common Questions asked by Grammar Schools


"I love the feature that automatically sends an email alert to the applicant’s parents once their child’s application has been reviewed and checked for completeness. This saves me from having to update each parent manually via email or phone."
