Selective Eligibility Test (SET) for entry in September 2021 

The Selective Eligibility Test for 2021 entry  that was due to be held on 15th September was postponed. The Selective Eligibility Test (and second stage tests for those schools who have these) will now take place on Wednesday 11th November; we will confirm further details.

The necessary delay means that the Selective Elgibiility Test will now take place after the deadline for submission of your Local Authority Common Application Form (31st October 2020). Any questions about this must be addressed to your local authority as schools do not have any involvement in this part of the process.

Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time. Registration is still open and there are no changes to the deadlines below.

The online registration is available to complete online from 1st May 2020. Please click on the button below. The closing date for the completion of the registration form is midnight on Friday 14th August 2020.  No late registrations will be accepted under any circumstances. Please note there is an earlier deadline of 19th June 2020 for submission of requests for special adjustments for candidates with SEN, and for supporting evidence (see further information below).

If you wish for your child to be considered for one of the 60 ability places available in Year 7, you will need to register for your child to sit the Selective Eligibility Test (SET) in order for them to be invited in to one of the participating Schools to sit the test in September 2020 .
