In Year Admissions

In Year Admissions after the start of Year 7

In-year testing will take place to assess suitability for the school. The tests are produced by the School in English and Mathematics (plus Science for Year 10). These tests are based on national curriculum content appropriate to the age group. Each of the tests lasts for one hour.

If more students taking the assessment reach the required standard than there are places available, then the oversubscription criteria outlined in section 1.v. of the Admission Policy will be used to determine which applicants are offered places.

We do not normally admit into Year 11 (or late on in Year 10); however, exceptional circumstances may be taken into consideration by the Governors’ Admissions Committee.

Provisional testing dates:

  • Monday, 19th September 2022
  • Wednesday, 16th November 2022
  • Wednesday, 18th January 2023
  • Wednesday, 1st March 2023
  • Wednesday, 3rd May 2023
  • Wednesday, 21st June 2023

Registration closes 7 days before the test date

For the academic year 2022/23 places are currently available in:

Please note that all year groups are currently at PAN (planned admission number) and so achieving the required standard does not guarantee a place at the school.

Please refer to Section 4 of our Admissions Policy for further detail on admission of students after the start of Year 7.
