Criteria for Admitting Students After the Start of the Academic Year
Students admitted at the start of Year 7 each academic year will be those who have been judged suitable for Grammar School education under the Kent selection procedure. Year 7 students applying for a place into Year 7 between September and December will take the Kent Test. From January, Year 7, students will take the school’s own In Year admissions test.
Students who wish to join the school into Years 8 – 11 and those students wishing to join Year 7 not having previously taken the Kent test at Primary school should apply for a place at the school using the In Year Casual Admission Form (IYCAF) and Supplementary Information Form (SIF). Once these are both received the school will notify you within 15 school days of the testing date.
Students can test once each year for a place at the school. If a student is unsuccessful following testing for a place into Year 7, then that student has the opportunity to test the following year for a place into Year 8. This applies to all year
