Year 5 Grammar School Test
GLOUCESTERSHIRE GRAMMAR SCHOOLS’ STATEMENT ON THE ENTRANCE TEST FOR SEPTEMBER 2022 ENTRY (CURRENT YEAR 5 PUPILS)
Grammar Entrance Test
The grammar schools have stated that the registration window for the 2022 Admissions Entrance Test will be open 17 May 2021 to 30 June 2021. The schools are planning for the Entrance Test to take place on Saturday 11 September 2021. This date is subject to any government restrictions/advice at the time and communications will be on going with all registered candidates.
Please be advised that the registration for and administration of the Admissions Entrance Test is all carried out by the Gloucestershire grammar schools themselves and therefore any queries in reference to the Entrance Test should be directed to the grammar schools. After the test, every grammar school you have opted to share your child's score with will send you confirmation of whether your child has achieved a qualifying score for that school or not. Again, this is carried out by the Gloucestershire grammar schools and the Co-ordinated Admissions Team does not have access to this information.
It is important to note that obtaining a qualifying rank on the Entrance Test is not an automatic offer of a place in the grammar school(s). Parent/carers must also list the grammar school(s) on their secondary school application form to their home local authority between September 2021 and the closing date of 31 October 2021.
Please note - your child will not be offered a place in a grammar school if it has not been listed on your secondary school application form.
Parents who wish their child to be considered for admission to a grammar school for Years 7-11 should contact the relevant school.In the meantime, parents/carers may find it helpful to look at the latest entrance test familiarisation guide and the Entrance Test FAQs (both documents are available on all seven grammar school websites).
