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 online preference form (SA3) which must also be completed, otherwise a valid application will not have been made.

Please refer to the Admissions Policy for further information. 

Please note that in the unlikely event of a candidate sitting the same test at more than one centre, the first result only will count.
