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:

  • Tuesday 27th June 2023
  • Wednesday 11th October 2023
  • Wednesday 15th November 2023
  • Wednesday 17th January 2024
  • Wednesday 28th February 2024
  • Wednesday 1st May 2024
  • Thursday 27th June 2024

Registration closes 7 days before the test date

Please contact the school regarding available places. Where a year group is at PAN (planned admission number) 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.
