Year 7 Admissions

Thank you for considering Queen Elizabeth Grammar School for the next stage in your child’s education.

Pupils will be selected for a place at Queen Elizabeth Grammar School on the basis of their aptitude for the academic nature of the education offered at the school, such selection being by way of evidence of aptitude from the entrance test. All who are considering applying for a place at Queen Elizabeth Grammar School should fill in the school’s own entrance test application form and return it to Queen Elizabeth Grammar School. Please note that this does not replace the Local Authority SA3 form which must also be completed, otherwise a valid application will not have been made.

Please refer to the Admissions Policy for further information.
