Entrance Tests for admission into Year 7 in September 2018

on 30th June 2017

You can no longer register and you cannot
request changes to Share Schools.

If you have missed the deadline there is no point in emailing us.  We will not accept any late registrations.

Important Notice

We emailed all parents on Sunday 23rd July 2017 either to inform them of a change in Test Centre or to confirm that their Preferred Test Centre has been allocated.  The email asked all parents to reply so that we know you have received this important email.  To date (02/08/2017) we have only received replies from 50% of parents.  If you have not replied please do so as soon as possible.  We will not acknowledge your reply -  it is for you to let us know you have received this important information.  Please do not include any other information in your reply (eg change of address) as these emails are only checked against the list of emails we sent out.

Safe Senders  

Some ISPs (email providers) block any emails received from any email address that is not in your Safe Senders.  This is a world wide problem and outside of our control.

To avoid this happening to you before you start to complete the on-line registration form you must add the following email addresses to your “Safe Senders”.  This should ensure that all our emails are delivered to your Inbox.

If you have already registered and you have printed or photographed the “Proof of Submission” page (see below) but not received a confirmation email please follow the instructions above regarding “Safe Senders” and then email us to confirm that you have done this and to request a second copy.

If you do not receive a confirmation email from us it may have gone to your spam, bulk or junk mail folder.  If you find the email there, your ISP or your own software spam-blockers or filters are diverting our email.  We have no control over this -  only you or your ISP can change the settings.  Please follow the instructions above and add our emails to your “Safe Senders”.
On-Line Registration
How will I know if my Registration Form has been submitted successfully?

When you have completed your Registration Form and you click the Submit button, if your form has been successfully submitted, you will be taken to a “Proof of Submission” page.

This will display your child’s name, a unique Proof of Submission number and the date and time that the form was submitted. You MUST print or photograph this page.  In the event of any dispute regarding the submission of your on-line registration form you will need to send us this page as evidence.  Without it we will not investigate any claims that an on-line form has been submitted.

If you have left any required fields blank, instead of the “Proof of Submission” page, your registration form will be re-displayed and any errors will be highlighted in RED at the top of the form.  You need to complete these required fields and then click the “Submit Registration” button again.  You should then be taken to the “Proof of Submission” page.

If you find that you cannot submit your form, please read the notes at the very bottom of this page and send us the details.  We will do our best to help you.  However, responsibility remains with you to ensure that your completed registration form is received before the deadline.  

Important Notice about Confirmation emails

Most Registration Forms were processed within a few hours and a confirmation email sent as soon as it was been processed.

If you think you have not received your confirmation email please check your spam, bulk and junk folders -  it may be there!

If you have a copy of your “Proof of Submission” page (see above) and checked your spam, bulk and junk folders and have not received a confirmation email after three days you must follow the instructions above regarding “Safe Senders” and then send us an email to confirm that you have done this and to request a second copy.  Do NOT request a second copy unless you have added our email addresses to your Safe Senders - It will not be delivered.

Responsibility for ensuring that your registration form has been received and processed before the deadline rests exclusively with parents / carers.  If you do not contact us we have no way of knowing that there is a problem.

No exceptions will be made for registration forms not received and processed by the deadline.

Changes to Shared Schools will not be accepted after the deadline.

After the close of registration at 1600 hrs on 30th June 2017, please check this website ( regularly for any general announcements that affect all candidates.  This is especially important during the summer holidays when the schools are closed.
Additional links

After you have submitted the on-line registration form you need to download and complete the Test Day ID Form and your child must bring it to the test signed and with a photograph attached (see section 4 in Notes about Admission Arrangements and Testing ).

When you receive your confirmation email from us, if you included anything in the Special Needs box on the on-line registration form, you will be directed to download and complete the SEN-D Form.  This must be submitted to your Preferred Test Centre together with any supporting evidence within FIVE days of completing your on-line registration form or 1600 hrs on 30th June 2017 whichever comes first.  Any information / supporting evidence sent after the deadline will not be considered.
