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 Eligibility 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.

Please see the Frequently Asked Questions for the Selective Eligibility Test 2021 here.
