Gloucestershire Grammar Schools’ Statement
(Entrance test for September 2021 entry - current Year 5 pupils)
In light of current events, parents and carers of children in Year 5 will want to know about arrangements for the Gloucestershire Grammar School Entrance Test, which is scheduled to be taken by children on Saturday, 12th September 2020.
As things stand, the Gloucestershire Grammar School Headteachers plan to run the entrance test as scheduled at their schools on Saturday, 12th September 2020. Also, in light of the current COVID-19 close down of all schools, the grammar heads have agreed to move the registration opening date to Monday, 18th May 2020: this will give all parents/carers two additional weeks to complete the process. The online registration system will close at noon on Tuesday, 30th June 2020. Those who fail to register will not be able to sit the test in September. When the registration process is complete, further details of the test day will be provided by the allocated test centre where the candidate will sit the test.
The expectation is that the entrance test will go ahead as planned on Saturday 12th September 2020. However, if any changes are necessary communication will continue with all parents/carers who register their Year 5 children and this communication will be via email so please ensure you register with an email address that is fully accessible to you at all times.
To summarise, parents/carers will need to register their child between 18th May and 30th June as normal and plan for their child to sit the test on Saturday 12th September 2020. In the meantime, parents/carers may find it helpful to look at the latest entrance test familiarisation guide and the Entrance Test FAQs (both documents are available on all seven grammar school websites).
