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.

Entrance Test Results - Important Information

Offer letters for the Year 7 intake into Queen Elizabeth Grammar School for 2018 have been issued to all relevant parents/carers. We have phrased the letters to provide sufficient information for parents/carers to make a well informed choice about the best way to complete the Cumbria County Council SA3 form. The letter is not an offer of a place in itself; the SA3 form has to be completed and submitted by the deadline. Please take note of the fact that the equal preference scheme operated by the County Council means that you do not prejudice your chance of a place at any other school if you place Queen Elizabeth Grammar School as your first option but do not consequently get a place. 

In accordance with our admissions policy, which can be viewed on our website, we will not be issuing any further information about rank order or test score. We believe this information is unnecessary and influences the mindset of students and can be detrimental to their performance. 

Mr Paul Buckland
